Lampard wages remains on books at Chelsea

Frank Lampard remains on the books at Chelsea, it has been claimed.

The Sun says when Lampard was sacked by Chelsea last month the club did not pay-up the remainder of his contract after a change of policy in the wake of coughing up huge sums to get rid of Jose Mourinho.

Instead they have kept his £75,000-a-week wages on the wage bill – with an agreement that will continue to be paid until July unless he takes a job elsewhere.

And that leaves Lampard in a position where he any offer of employment that comes in would potentially cost him a fortune.

The 42-year-old is understood to be happy to be taking a break from the game for a short period following his sacking, having had three highly-pressured seasons since becoming a manager at Derby.
