Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has hinted that a career in management awaits when he decides to hang up his boots.
The 30-year-old England midfielder has admitted he is unlikely to walk away from the game when he retires and is set to follow his father and uncle into the world of coaching.
Lampard father, Frank Snr, is a coach at Watford while Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is his uncle.
"I will take my coaching badges at some stage to be in a position where it (management) is a big possibility for me," he revealed.
"I would love to work with players when I eventually stop playing.
"It is true that a few years ago I didn't feel like going into the management side of things once I stopped playing. I was thinking more along the lines of getting away from football.
"But now I am a bit older. I look at younger players and I've worked with so many good managers and it gives you the taste to maybe get involved."
