Towards the close of the Blues’ miserable and forgettable 2022–23 season, he had only one victory in 11 games across all competitions.

Despite having helped Everton escape relegation from the Premier League a few months earlier, Lampard was fired as manager of the team in January of last year.

The former midfield player admitted to talkSPORT that he is still interested in returning to the field in the future, despite his difficult times as a manager.

Regarding his current state, he stated, “Yeah, enjoying being with the family and looking to get back at some point.”

“I don’t know at the minute Moose, that’s a part of the job and the life isn’t it?” he said in response to Ian “Moose” Abrahams’ question about when he will interview him again for a managerial position.

I’m eager to start working again, but to reiterate, I’m enjoying [family life]. Hopefully something comes up that feels right for me.

It’s a demanding job, so when you get to enjoy time with all of my kids, especially my little ones, and spend time with them

To the question of whether the job is depressing him, Lampard replied, “No, not at all. You enjoy your work and are aware of the challenges it presents in the modern world, as we all see.

“I’ve enjoyed working with every club I’ve been involved with; obviously, each one has presented unique challenges. Let’s see what happens. I enjoy working with players to help them become better players and teams.

When Lampard was Derby Country’s manager for the first time, he led the team to the Championship play-off final, where Aston Villa defeated them.

He was appointed Chelsea’s new manager after just one season at Pride Park. Despite having a transfer ban and playing without the late club icon Eden Hazard, Chelsea managed to finish in the top four.

Nevertheless, he managed to win two of his next eight games before being dismissed in January 2022 and signing with Everton a year later.

In the Toffees’ penultimate game of the season, they defeated Crystal Palace 3-2 to keep the season alive. However, eight months later, Lampard was fired.

After Graham Potter left, the 45-year-old returned to Stamford Bridge in April of last year, with Mauricio

Pochettino taking over as permanent manager.
