Chelsea Legend Hints At Extended PL Stay

Chelsea legend has hinted at an extended stay with Manchester City, having made a surprising impact since the start of his loan spell with the Premier League champions, as reported by the Daily Star.

Lampard moved to the Manchester club in the summer months, having initially signed for New York City FC.

The new MLS franchise are City’s sister club, and with the New York club not set to play any fixtures until February of next year, a loan spell seemed like a good solution for all parties.

Despite questions over Lampard’s ability to motivate himself in competing with former club Chelsea, the retired England international scored a key goal against them, winning City a point against the unbeaten league leaders.

Since then, he has been in sensational form, and there have been suggestions that his loan spell, set to expire on January 1st, could be extended even further.

Lampard said: “The temptation is to not get ahead of myself in my career. I am here until January 1, basically, so I will focus on that and see what happens then.

“There has been a lot said about when the season starts, but the only thing that can decide my future is how well I am playing. They will be kicking me out in January if I don’t play very well!

“I am just looking game to game and trying to play as well as I can.”
