Lampard embracing new role for club and country

England and Chelsea midfielder Frank LampardEngland midfielder Frank Lampard has conceded his days as an attacking midfielder, are all but over.

The Chelsea man was deployed in a deeper role during the Blues incredible run to the Champions League title and is unlikely to play higher up the pitch, with superstars such as Juan Mata and Eden Hazard at the London club.

However the 34-year-old is adamant he can continue to score goals, as he closes in on his 100th cap for his country.

Ahead of the Three Lions World Cup Qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine, Lampard discussed his England experiences with The Sun, “I’ve enjoyed every little bit of my England career.

“It’s unfortunate that we’ve never won anything, never gone past the quarter-finals and people always like to knock what’s happened with England.

“They’re always throwing that rubbish about the golden generation at us, even though it’s not something we ever brought up ourselves.”

The 91 cap international also added that he was happy to take on any new role his club or country needed him to fill, “If it’s the case that I’m going to be playing as a holding midfielder, and it looks as though it could be that way, then why not?

“I did it last season and I’ll do it again.”
