Frank Lampard admits he would be opening to taking up the vacant technical director’s role at Chelsea following Michael Emenalo’s resignation.
Emenalo made the shock announcement this week that he has stepped down from the role, bring an end to a 10-year stay with the Blues.
And Lampard, who has been earning his coaching badges while working with Chelsea’s Under-18s since retiring from playing in February, admits he would consider taking up the position as he looks to further his off-the-field footballing career.
"I worked with Michael for seven or eight years and his role at the club coincided with the most successful period in Chelsea's history so I think he deserves a lot of credit from that," said Lampard.
"Everyone at Chelsea wishes him well as he moves on.
"In terms of myself, I don't know. I'm a Chelsea person, I'd love to be involved with the club long-term in some way. We'll see."
