Frank Lampard receives surprising job opportunity as Chelsea icon receives chance

Reportedly, former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is under consideration for the position of head coach for the Canada national team. Lampard, who left his position at Stamford Bridge at the end of the previous season, has not been in management since.

However, the Telegraph has claimed that the Canadian football federation has included him in a list of potential candidates for the head coach role, aiming to lead the team at the 2026 World Cup. Notably, Lampard was recently seen watching England training under Gareth Southgate for friendlies against Brazil and Belgium, indicating a potential interest in the role.

Despite experiencing dismissals from both Chelsea and Everton, Lampard is reportedly open to returning to coaching. Moreover, he is showed interest in finding the right project, although his interest in leading the Canada national team remains uncertain.

An important aspect to consider is Lampard’s experience playing in MLS with New York City towards the end of his playing career; however, he has not yet coached outside of England since his first job with Derby. Lampard has expressed his willingness to return to coaching, but is currently enjoying his time away from football, focusing on family life.

Reflecting on his coaching career, Lampard has shared that he relishes the job and the challenges associated with it. He enjoys working with players, improving their skills, and strengthening the team, emphasizing his keenness to return to work but also highlighting the enjoyment he currently finds in family life.

However, Lampard may need to consider the current state of the Canada set-up, as his possible predecessor, Herdman, stressed the need for more resources before leaving the top job. This could potentially impact Lampard’s decision regarding the coaching role with the Canada national team.
