‘It’s an easy link’ – Lampard focused on Derby amid reports of potential Chelsea return

The Blues legend reiterated his commitment to the Rams’ cause – but stopped short of ruling out a Stamford Bridge reunion

Derby County manager Frank Lampard has left the door open for a potential return to Chelsea if Maurizio Sarri departs, but the former midfielder says his main focus remains on the upcoming Championship playoff final.

The former England international made sure to reiterate his commitment to getting the Rams promoted at the first time of asking but did not rule out a return to London if current Blues manager Sarri returns to Italy with Juventus.

Lampard finished sixth in the Championship with Derby in his first year as a manager and has guided his side to the playoff final, where they will face Aston Villa for a shot at reaching the Premier League.
