Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard can't see himself retreating to a sitting role to help his ageing legs.

Lampard was asked about a deeper role similar to Juventus star Andrea Pirlo.

"No, not like Pirlo. There will only ever be one Pirlo.

"In real life you probably adapt your game and you can't bomb up and down as much as you did.

"If you can use your experience - whether you are playing deeper or not - if you have a little bit of licence to get forward, as I did, you can do it at the right times."
