AVB keen to keep Lampard

Published Add your comment

Andre Villas-Boas is confident Frank Lampard will still be at Chelsea next season, despite the pair's widely-publicised falling out.

Blues boss Villas-Boas stopped short of promising Lampard would not leave this summer but insisted no-one wanted him to do so. Lampard has admitted for the first time his relationship with Villas-Boas had "not been ideal", although he was keen not to dwell on the problems between them.

Villas-Boas has already warned of a summer clearout should he remain in charge, but asked if he was 100% sure the 33-year-old would be at the club next season, he said: "I hope so. It does not depend on me. It depends on three parts - I want him, the person wants to stay and the club wants him."
