Frank Lampard ‘in talks’ to land new job as Chelsea hero returns to management

Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard is reportedly in discussions with Burnley to assume the role of their next permanent manager, succeeding Vincent Kompany. Lampard, who has been without a managerial position since departing Chelsea last summer, is eager to return to management and has emerged as a potential candidate for the Clarets’ managerial vacancy, as per talkSPORT. Kompany’s recent departure to Bayern Munich has left Burnley seeking a new leader, with Craig Bellamy currently serving as the club’s acting head coach.

Although talks between Lampard and Burnley are said to be in the early stages, club officials are actively planning for life in the Championship following their relegation from the Premier League last season. The report suggests that Bellamy, who served as Kompany’s assistant, is also under consideration for the permanent managerial role at Burnley, or he could potentially join Kompany at Bayern Munich. Lampard, who previously managed Derby County and Chelsea, brings managerial experience and a desire for success to Burnley as they prepare for the challenges ahead in the Championship.
