Benitez won't discuss Lampard future

Published Add your comment

Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez would not be drawn on the future of Frank Lampard, only revealing the midfielder remains focused on the task at hand.

The 34-year-old has been the subject of rife speculation in recent days and weeks, with his contract at Stamford Bridge due to expire in the summer. Lampard's agent Steve Kutner has claimed the midfielder will not be offered a new contract by the west Londoners under any circumstance, while reports suggest Manchester United are plotting a deal.

Such a move would devastate Chelsea's fan base and was not something Benitez was willing to even comprehend. "I think it's too early to talk about teams and the future," the Spaniard said. "Frank is under contract and playing for us. That's it. You know my idea. He's doing well, working very hard and I will try to bring the best from him."
