Russian billionaire and Chelsea chairman, Roman Abramovic is reportedly considering contract extension talks with coach, Frank Lampard after a stunning opener to the Blues campaign.
Lampard has steered his lads through an impressive season so far, recording some resounding results in the process, including a 4-0 bashing of Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan last week.
The 42-year-old seems to be on course for more years at the helm at Stamford Bridge with owner Roman Abramovic looking to commence talks of a contract renewal having been much impressed with his club’s progress this term under the Blues legend.
Lampard still has over a year left as Blues boss in his current deal and has expressed his desire to continue as Blues manager last week.
“In terms of my contract, it seems to have flown by, the time I’ve been here,” said Lampard to SkySports.
“It’s right I’ve got 18 months left and I felt it when I came to the club, I knew there were a lot of circumstances at the beginning that were going to make last year transitional and maybe slightly difficult.
“I felt like I took the job in a different position to most recent Chelsea managers. I think people sympathise with that as well and I think it was a success.
“Now I feel like I would love to be part of the long-term plan here.
“Of course, that’s the club’s decision and the owner’s decision first and foremost, so I have to get on with the short-term which starts with Leeds.
The Blues travel to Merseyside tonight for a cracker against Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton after an unimpressive draw midweek against Krasnodar at Stamford Bridge, and could finally go top of the league pending results elsewhere at Selhurst Park and Craven Cottage this weekend.
