Chelsea fans are actually smiling here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Mail have claimed that Frank Lampard will not be away from the club for too long.
As one of our regular Blues fans notes, the midfielder is simply a Chelsea legend and the news that he would not be getting a new deal, ending his career at Stamford Bridge in the process, certainly hit Blues fans hard.
Now Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has come out and made it very clear that fans need not panic and can look forward to seeing Lampard once again after his short trip away.
Mourinho claimed: “I think he is just going for a ride somewhere and then he is coming back very, very soon because that’s what the owner wants, that’s what he [Lampard] wants – what everybody wants.”
The Chelsea boss also made it clear to point out that Lampard was not just in Chelsea’s future but his, noting: “Whatever he wants, whenever he wants. I repeat Mr Abramovich’s words – I will have him doing anything. ”
Chelsea fans. Do you think Mourinho is telling the truth? Do you think that Lampard will be back at the club sooner rather than later? Let us know your thoughts below.
