Frank Lampard has admitted that becoming Chelsea manager would be his dream job.

The Blues are currently getting used to life under new boss Antonio Conte, who has earned plenty of praise for the strong impact he has had since taking over at Chelsea last summer.

Chelsea are flying high at the top of the Premier League table and are also chasing the FA Cup title in Conte’s first season in charge at the club.

Lampard recently hung up his playing boots and is now focused on gaining his coaching badges as he considers a career in management.

And the Chelsea legend admits that he would love nothing more than to take charge of his former club – although he admits that is currently a long way off.

Asked about managing Chelsea, Lampard told Sky Sports’ Goals on Sunday: “I don’t know about at Chelsea! That’s their decision as much as mine!

“I’m going through the badges, and Chelsea are helping me with that. Obviously that would be my dream job, having been there as a player, but we’ll see.”
