Chelsea boss frank Lampard is probably nursing a dream of managing Spanish League giants Barcelona someday.
The 42-year-old became the Blues manager just one year after impressing at Derby County and almost promoted them to the Premier League but lost out at the playoffs stage.
However, he has been under fire at Stamford Bridge owing to his side’s poor run of results having won just one of their last six Premier League fixtures.
But, the former midfielder must be keeping up high hopes of being in charge of the Catalans according to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague.
The 52-year-old former Sky Sports pundit was quoted by The Mirror while speaking on the Esport3 program ‘Onze’:
“His dream is to train in La Liga and do what he couldn’t do during his days as a player. He would like to sit in the dugout at the Nou Camp and coach Barca in the not too distant future.”
The 2012 Champions League winner was linked with a move to Barca and Real Madrid during his playing career but that failed to materialise.
But instead, he spent 13 years at Stamford Bridge, where he won three Premier League titles and other domestic silverware.
Meanwhile, the Blues boss is focused on his current job and how to help get their title contention back in place.
Chelsea are ninth on the EPL table with 26 points after 17 rounds of league matches but will hope to return to winning ways against Fulham at the Craven Cottage.
Barcelona, meanwhile, are currently managed by Ronald Koeman, and their hopes of winning La Liga this season seem all but over as they sit ten points behind leaders Atletico Madrid having played a game more.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea outcast Olivier Giroud has emerged as a top transfer target for Juventus and AC Milan this month.
The 34-year-old has scored nine goals in 15 appearances for the Blues across competitions this campaign.
However, Frank Lampard is still not impressed with the 2018 World Cup winner as he prefers Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham to him.
