Lampard does U-turn and now fancies management

Frank Lampard fancies football management after taking inspiration from the likes of Jose Mourinho, Fabio Capello and Guus Hiddink. The England and Chelsea midfielder had originally intended to quit football after eventually hanging up his boots.

Lampard said: "I will take my coaching badges at some stage to be in a position where it (management) is a big possibility for me.

"I would love to work with players when I eventually stop playing.

"It is true that a few years ago I didn't feel like going into the management side of things once I stopped playing. I was thinking more along the lines of getting away from football.

"But now I am a bit older. I look at younger players and I've worked with so many good managers, and it gives you the taste to maybe get involved."
