Chelsea no2 Di Matteo: Lampard part of our plans

Chelsea assistant manager Roberto Di Matteo does not see Frank Lampard leaving the club.

The veteran midfielder has been linked with a shock move to Manchester United but Di Matteo has made it clear that the Blues have no intentions of selling the England international.

"We're very happy that Frank is in our team because he's a fantastic player," said Di Matteo.

"He's been a fantastic player season after season for many, many years for this club and for his country.

"I'm not surprised all the managers like him. I can't really see him go or leaving this club.

"He's been here for 10 years and he's part of the successful history of this club.

"I don't know what the future will hold, but I can't see him going anywhere.

"He's part of our plans and he'll be very important for us."
