Former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard says that his sacking has allowed him to gain perspective on what is important. The legend has been spending time resting with his family lately following the birth of his young son.
The gaffer added that the opportunities haven’t been quite right for him to start working again. While adding that he is waiting for the right time and opportunity to get back into the game again.
Below is the full details of his interview with Goal;
“No matter how good you think you are or whatever circumstances you are in, [being sacked] can happen,” Frank Lampard told Goal.
“It gives you a sense of perspective of what’s important. It came at a time where we were due a young son and it has given me a lot more time to be home so you count your blessings on that front.
“It has been great to be around the family. I have had some opportunities that have come up in the last six weeks to two months that have been flattering and nice but it wasn’t the right thing. It has certainly been nice to step out having been managing two and a half years full pelt.
“With the family situation, the opportunities were not quite right. I think about it and it would be something I am keen to do at the right time and in the right place. As much as I am resting and recuperating away from the game, I am keeping an eye on it.
“I am looking forward to things that may come. I am watching football and trying to learn and get better. In this game, you never stop learning so I will try and find the right time and opportunity if it comes and I am very keen to get working again.”
Frank Lampard was dismissed as the Blues boss on January 26th after a poor run of games. Since then, the Chelsea legend has been linked with the England U21s job and could be back in the football world really soon.
