England midfielder happy to stay at Stamford Bridge for a few more years.
Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has suggested that he wants to stay at the club for at least a few more years according to the London Evening Standard.
The player was subject to much speculation this season with the club reportedly informing Lampard during the January transfer window that they would not be renewing his contract.
But a combination of Lampard’s impressive form and pressure from the fans has seen the player awarded a new one year deal.
The 35 year old does not subscribe to the view however that this year will be his last. The England star believes he still has what it takes to play at the highest level and can carry on playing until at least 2016.
Lampard is determined to prove himself yet again next season and earn another contract extension.
Lampard recently admitted he did not enjoy the best of relationships with Chelsea’s interim boss Rafa Benitez, despite scoring 15 goals in the league on his way to becoming the club’s all-time record goalscorer.
He is unlikely to find himself in a similar position next season with the club set to announce the appointment of Jose Mourinho in the coming days after it was announced the Stamford Bridge side would not have to pay any compensation to the Portuguese boss’ current employers, Real Madrid.
