Frank Lampard expressed surprise at the opportunity of a sensational return to Chelsea as a caretaker manager. Still, he did not dismiss the possibility of taking on the role on a permanent basis. He is set to hold the fort at Stamford Bridge for the remainder of the season while the club evaluates potential successors to Graham Potter.

Frank Lampard On His Role As A Caretaker Manager

Despite being previously sacked by Chelsea, Frank Lampard has returned to the club with a new mandate to revive their floundering Premier League campaign and lead them past Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals.

“I’m not getting ahead of myself,” he said. “I want to do the best I can to impact the club in this period, and we will see what happens afterwards.”

Although his appointment is initially seen as a short-term one, Lampard has not ruled out the possibility of his tenure being extended beyond the next two months. He expressed his focus on doing the best he can to make a positive impact on the club during this period and will wait to see what the future holds.

What Are The Chances Of Lampard Taking On A Permanent Role Next Season?

According to a report from The Guardian, Todd Boehly and Behdad Egbali, the co-owners of Chelsea Football Club, have released a statement expressing their delight at Frank Lampard’s return to Stamford Bridge. They acknowledged Lampard’s legendary status at the club and his standing as a Premier League Hall of Famer.

As the club continues its search for a permanent head coach, Boehly and Egbali emphasized the importance of providing a clear and stable plan for the remainder of the season. They believe Lampard possesses all the necessary qualities and characteristics to drive the team toward success in the upcoming matches.

The owners also reiterated their full backing of Lampard and the team as they prepare for an important game against Wolves on Saturday, followed by a crucial Champions League quarter-final match against Real Madrid. The goal is to secure the best possible outcome from all remaining games, and Lampard’s return is seen as a positive step towards achieving that objective. However, Lampard taking on a permanent role at Stamford Bridge will all depend on how the Blues fare at the end of this season. Julian Naglesmann and Luis Enrique are also in contention for taking up the vacant position at the club, so we would only know what transpires at the end of this season.
