Di Matteo recommends Lazio to Frank Lampard

Former Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo thinks Stamford Bridge legend Frank Lampard would be a perfect fit for his old club Lazio.

Lampard is out of contract at the end of this season and is reportedly not going to be offered an extension by Roman Abramovich.

Now Football Italia is running with quotes from Di Matteo where he suggests the Biancocelesti would be a positive option for the England international and even admits he has spoken with Lampard to tell him this.

The Italian insisted Lamaprd still has the quality and discipline to operate at the highest level much longer than the end of the season that Chelsea appear to be estimating.

“Lampard is a great player and a great professional, so I am certain he can play at least another two years at the top level,” Di Matteo told Sky Sport Italia.

“I don’t know if he will join Lazio or not, but it would certainly be a good choice for both parties. We often talk and I gave him my opinion. At the end of the day he will make the decision.”

Lampard has been linked with moves all over the globe but has continually reiterated his desire to stay on at Stamford Bridge and the Chelsea fans have been vociferous in their support for him with chants of “sign him up”.

Di Matteo was sacked earlier this season despite last season leading the Blues to an FA Cup and UEFA Champions League double after taking over from Andre Villas-Boas.
