Rumour has it that Chelsea are ready to offer Frank Lampard a new 1-year contract extension. Another rumour has it that Jose Mourinho actually has a finger in this. Sources: Daily Mail / The Sun
My opinion: Giving Lampard another year and letting him retire in Chelsea will not hurt anyone. I think he has done enough to prove he still deserves to play. With everything he has done for the team throughout the years AND throughout this season as well, he has shown that even at the age of almost 35, he still has it.
Why don’t we give him a chance? Look at players like Giggs, Scholes, Antonio Di Natale, Francesco Totti, etc. – they are absolute legends and their teams don’t even think of letting them go. Giggs is 39 (1973), Scholes is 38 (1974), Di Natale is 35 (1977), Totti is 36 (1976). Okay, let’s say Scholes is almost impossible to be replaced because when he retired for a while, a big hole opened in Manure’s midfield and they were horrible, so he had to come back. But let’s face it – Manure, Udinese & Roma will probably never let go of their legends. Why should we? Everybody seems to be interested in Lampard but apparently we aren’t! Everybody seems to be praising him but apparently we aren’t!
However, rumour has it we’re about to take a U-turn and finally see that Frank deserves a new contract. Let’s see if it’s true.
What do you guys think?
