‘Not a goodbye’- Lampard on Stamford Bridge exit

As he gears up for the final game of his second stint as manager, Chelsea coach says it's not  goodbye

Frank Lampard has stated that his exit as Chelsea interim manager is only temporary

At the end of the current campaign, Lampard’s short-term contract expires, and Mauricio Pochettino, former Tottenham Hotspur manager has an agreement to replace him in the coming summer.

“I will be back at Chelsea many times,” said the former Blues midfielder.

“I’m quite calm about it and not too nostalgic.”

“I will never feel like I am saying goodbye to the fans,”

“It will be the end of season and the end of my time back but normally when you leave a club you don’t have a hurrah as a manager. You are in one day, out the next and that’s fine”.

“When you take on a managerial career it doesn’t mean you will be at a club you had 13 years at as a player forever”.

“I certainly do appreciate the fans’ support on Sunday. More than anything I would love to give them a performance to take away for the summer and feel a bit more positive about.”

Lampard took over for Graham Potter in April but  has only won four of his eight Premier League games, leaving the team in 12th place heading into the last game of the season at home against Newcastle United.
