His last club on these side of the pond was of course Manchester City, but with the 38-year-old now looking to life after he hangs up his boots, Lampard has suggested he would only ever fancy managing another English club.
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard feels the game's top players deserve favours when taking their coaching badges.
The former Blues superstar has close connections with Chelsea and is the club's all-time leading goal-scorer.
"The dream would be to manage Chelsea one day".
Speaking in an interview with Soccer AM on Sky Sports, Lampard said: "If I was good enough, if they [Chelsea] wanted me and it was the right time".
'As a Chelsea man or not, the job is one of the pinnacles of football, they are one of the top clubs in the world now. I wouldn't have to move house.
Lampard now plays for New York City FC but shows no sign of slowing down, having scored 12 times this season.
"There was a period earlier in my career where I really fancied it, then I thought I don't fancy the managerial thing".
'Now, I'm back onto it.
He told The Sun: "When you've played for your country or a lot of times at the top level, you have got to say to people "instead of going down the media route, here is a great way for you to get your badges quickly".
'As soon as I finish I would like to take it up and maybe be a manager. "It's hard as I only want the Chelsea job".
Chelsea, meanwhile, returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory at Hull City before the global break.
