In a piece of news that echoes the rumours emanating from Italy from a few days ago, Frank Lampard’s agent has come to accept that his Chelsea career is over.
Steve Kutner said that Lampard was told during the Club World Cup in Japan and had it reconfirmed to him after the Everton game that there was no intention to reverse the internal decision and offer him a new contract.
This would likely explain Lampard’s emotional celebrations against Southampton at the weekend after scoring his penalty. It will also come as a disappointment to their fans that Chelsea’s now joint-second greatest scorer of all time will be dismissed in such an unceremonious manner.
