The former Chelsea player and Coach Frank Lampard has revealed that he is he is ready to return to football management, amid links with Crystal Palace managerial role.

Lampard has been out of a job since being succeeded by Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge in January, but a return could be on the horizon, and not too far from Stamford Bridge.

Lampard is the favorite to succeed Roy Hodgson after the Palace coach revealed he would walk away from his management role at the end of this season.

And the former Chelsea midfielder makes no bones about the point of returning to management, as long as the project he is walking into is the right one.

“It’s something I love doing, I love working in management, even more than I thought I would do,” Lampard told the Mirror.

He added: “I would take a view on going into the Championship.

“If it was the right club, the right project for sure. I don’t have an ego where I feel just because I’ve managed in the Champions League, that’s the be-all and end-all. My year at Derby was such an enjoyable year.”

“My emotional attachment with the club won’t change for so many reasons.

“For the reasons that Chelsea fans accepted me as a West Ham boy all those years ago, for the reasons that Roman Abramovich came to the club and made my career by putting me in this amazing squad and turning away from that would be impossible.”

Speaking about Chelsea supporters responded to his sacking,Lampard said:
“I did see the fans singing. People sent me clips and I saw it. I did wonder after I got sacked how the fans would react, but I am so thankful for that and that’s been the story of me with the Chelsea fans ever since I went there.

“I probably could have taken an easier route at the time whatever that was. Maybe stay at Derby, make another small step to a team where there’s not so much expectation, you’re not expected to win every week and I wanted to get the challenge.

“I’m not sure if I was to come back to Chelsea at 55 years of age, with titles behind me, I think the rules would be the same. There is an expectation to perform, to win and if you don’t then you might leave the club.

“But I’m good, I’m very happy. The timing of leaving is never something you want professionally but if ever there’s a time then it’s probably when your son is due in a month’s time which was from when I left Chelsea and he’s two months old now.”
