Chelsea favourite Frank Lampard is eyeing a coaching role once he retires from playing, according to the Metro.

The 35-year-old, who is set to gain his 100th international cap when England face Ukraine on Tuesday, has expressed his desire to remain playing for years to come, and then move into management.

"I want to play for a good few more years," he said.

"I will try and concentrate on that and then I will see what comes open. I certainly wouldn’t rule anything out after that.

"I am a football person so I would like to be involved in the game."

Lampard, who has amassed a healthy 406 appearances for Chelsea, has been a mainstay in their midfield for the better part of the last decade, and remains pivotal to Jose Mourinho's current plans, in spite of his advancing years.

The midfielder, who has scored 10 or more goals in each of the last 10 Premier League seasons, netted 23 times last campaign, and will undoubtedly be looking for more glory as he approaches the end of his career.

Lampard is a sure-fire starter for England in their crunch qualification match against Ukraine in Kiev tomorrow night, where his 100th cap will cement his international legacy.
