Ex-Chelsea and Everton manager Frank Lampard is eyeing a return but Crystal Palace have warned against his appointment
Former Chelsea and Everton manager Frank Lampard is said to be ‘preparing’ for his return to training.
The legendary midfielder has been out of work since the Toffees sacked him in January, putting their Premier League future in jeopardy.
However, according to The Sun, the 44-year-old isn’t letting this experience derail his ambitions.
He is believed to be watching the situations at Crystal Palace and Leicester City closely, with the former without a manager after sacking Patrick Vieira.
In the meantime, the Foxes have had a tough season and there is potential for upset this summer.
Fulham are also a team that could potentially need a new head coach, with Marco Silva attracting interest from Tottenham thanks to his work in west London.
Former Palace owner Simon Jordan, however, has urged the club he still supports to avoid Lampard as they try to stay in English football’s top tier.
“We need nine points to stay in this division and how are we going to get them out of 11 games?
“Let it be a short term fix, you need to get nine to ten points to get into this division next year and then look wider.
“If you start to veer into the territory of people like Lampard or Gerrard, well Lampard was interviewed by Palace a few years ago and they didn’t want him so what has changed?
“He would have had Everton relegated – he was a disaster at Everton towards the end. Gerrard was a disaster at Aston Villa. Why would one of these guys be a solution? »
