Chelsea Legend: “I’ve had Premier League offers!”


Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says he’s had offers from Premier League clubs.

Chelsea’s all time top goalscorer has also stated he is not yet ready to retire from Football.

38-year-old Lampard recently left New York City FC over in the MLS, and says he has no plans to call time on his already glorious career just yet.

“There is a part of me that wants to stay in the game, sometimes I don’t know why, it just feels this is what I do,” Lampard said.

“I don’t want to leave and think to myself, ‘Maybe I should have stayed a bit longer’, I’m dwelling on it, I have turned down a few Premier League offers.

“But the fact is, after being at Chelsea for so long and a year with Manchester City, I don’t want to get involved in a relegation dogfight.

“I don’t mind challenges but there comes a point when you have to take stock, I understand my weaknesses, it’s late January now and to try and get fit and then get into a team and make a massive impact… I don’t feel I could give enough.

“I just want to make sure I make the right decision. I’ve appreciated getting options at 38. If something comes along that floats my boat, who knows? But nothing has, so we will see.”

Lampard left Chelsea in 2014 after 13 years, leaving the club as the record goalscorer with a plethora of titles to his name, cementing his place in Stamford Bridge folklore.

With Chelsea leading the pack in the Premier League, former blue Lampard feels that the title may well be theirs to loose.

“I can’t see anyone catching them,” he said. “They are the most organised team, [Diego] Costa and [Eden] Hazard are the difference, you have got to give the manager a load of credit, too.”
