Chelsea interim manager Frank Lampard proudly declared that Chelsea is his club at his first press conference after his return to Chelsea.
The former Chelsea and England midfielder has been tasked with stabilising the club until the end of the season, while the owners and directors continue to try and recruit a permanent head coach.
Lampard admitted his “surprise” at being offered the role and has not ruled out the possibility of staying at the club beyond this season.
“It was a surprise, in terms of you never know the decision the club is going to make,” Lampard said. “I have been particularly enjoying my time at home.
“But it was an easy decision for me. This is my club. I have lots of emotions and feelings towards the club. I am delighted to get the opportunity and I am confident in myself.
“I am not getting ahead of myself. I want to do the best I can to impact the club in this period and we will see what happens afterwards.”
