Young gun wants Lampard to stay but refuses to comment on new manager.
Chelsea forward Victor Moses has urged the club to do all they can to keep veteran midfielder Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge next season, Sky Sports reports.
Speaking before Chelsea’s 2-1 win over FC Basel in the Europa League semi final, the 21-year-old reiterated just how important Lampard is to the side.
“He has been magnificent for us this season, he has scored goals and created goals at the same time. He is a legend at the club and the players would love to see him next season,” he said.
Lampard, 34, is out of contract at Stamford Bridge this season and is still a vital part of the team, bagging 14 goals already this term, but club chiefs have yet to offer him a new deal, making it increasingly likely that a proposed move to the MLS will go ahead.
Moses alos touched briefly on the managerial situation in West London but refused to dwell on the speculation linking Jose Mourinho with a return to the Premier League.
“He is a good manager but we are just concentrating on playing games and trying to stay in the top four and then playing in the Champions League next season.”
There is a summer of uncertainly ahead for Chelsea. Many would like to see ‘The Special One’ come back as much as they’d like to see Lampard stay and all eyes will be on Roman Abramovic to see what he does next.
