Chelsea ace Lampard: Retire? I want to play another ten years!

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard wants to play into his 40's.

Lampard says he draws inspiration from the likes of AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini.

"I'd like to carry on as long as I can play at the level I want to be playing at and the club want me to play. Age 32 is not the 32 it was 10 or 15 years ago if you look after yourself and have the right manager to help you through certain times," he told

"There are players like Ryan Giggs, Paolo Maldini and Paul Scholes who have gone on to play some of their best football in their later 30s and I would love to be able to do that."
