Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard's future is uncertain after he appeared to storm off during Saturday's clash with Swansea City, according to The Metro.

Lampard, 33, was left out from the start against The Swans, and was an unsaid substitute, with Josh McEachran earning a run-out ahead fog the England stalwart.

However, after learning his services wouldn't be utilised, Lampard reportedly stormed from the bench, leaving is future at Stamford Bridge up in the air.

 

When asked about Lampard reaction to be left out, Chelsea manager Andre Villas Boas said: "I don't know but this is nothing to speculate about.

"The players just want the team to perform and Frank is like that. He's a magnificent player and soon he'll be back into the team, sooner than you expect."

Lampard was left out from the start for England's Euro 2012 qualifier against Bulgaria, and was taken off at half time during Chelsea's trip to Manchester United last week.
