Lampard reflects on 'dream' Stamford Bridge return

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard spoke about his dream return to Stamford Bridge.

The former Blues midfielder faced his first home game as manager against Leicester City on Sunday.

Despite the negative of a 1-1 draw, Lampard admitted it was a special moment to stand in the dugout at the stadium where he played for so many years.

"It felt great," he said to reporters after the game.

"It is a special moment for me to come back to the club and manage them at Stamford Bridge, of course it is the stuff of dreams.

"For me it is a huge thing, but my focus today was on the match and trying to win.

"Thanks very much to the fans, I appreciate that, but I am here to do a job and here to try and win for the club and we can do better than we did today."
