Chelsea’s young Nigerian wants to see Lampard at the club for the 2013/14 season.
Chelsea youngster Victor Moses has made it clear to his employers that he wants Frank Lampard not to leave at the end of the season.
Speculation around Lampard’s future has been rife, as the veteran midfielder’s contract runs out in the summer and the Blues do not look likely to offer the England star a new deal.
However, Moses has announced that Lampard still has what it takes to perform at the top level and that the squad would feel the loss of the 34-year-old.
“He has scored goals and created goals at the same time,” the Nigerian was quoted on Sky Sports.
“He is a legend at the club and the players would love to see him next season.”
Yet whether Lampard is at Stamford Bridge or not come the 2013/14 campaign is out of the 22-year-old’s hands, as Chelsea enter something of a transition phase.
In a decade that has seen so much success in South London, this season has been a disappointment for the fans as their place in next year’s Champions League is still in the balance.
The sacking of FA Cup and Champions League winning manager Roberto Di Matteo was unpopular, but did not cause as much unrest in the stands as the appointment of interim Rafael Benitez.
The former Liverpool boss has never been excepted by the Blues’ faithful, despite leading them to a Europa League semi final – the first-leg of which is against FC Basel tonight.
Benitez will be replaced at the end of the season, with the most popular choice seemingly being former manager Jose Mourinho.
As for Lampard, he probably only has until the end of the season to net the three goals that will make him Chelsea’s all time top scorer ahead of Bobby Tambling.
