Terry wants new contract for Chelsea teammate Lampard

Chelsea captain John Terry has said it is “unthinkable” that Frank Lampard could be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of this season to join a Premier League rival, insisting that the England midfielder has got years of top-level football left in him, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Frank Lampard and John Terry

Lampard’s current deal expires this summer and Chelsea are said to be steadfast in their decision not to offer an extension to the 34-year-old. That is despite Lampard scoring 13 goals in 32 games for Chelsea this season, recently becoming the club’s record FA Cup goal scorer and sitting just a handful of goals behind Chelsea’s record all-time scorer, Bobby Tambling.

The Chelsea supporters have made their feelings regarding the club’s decision known in repeated vocal backing for Lampard, with Terry now apparently joining the chorus. He said: “He has got so much more to give, and he is an inspiration to everyone at the club. Still, at his age, he is the best trainer by a million miles. He works so hard…He has been an inspiration for everyone since he arrived at this club.

Terry added: “We all hope that it is here, but if not he has got years ahead of him,” and went on to say that he did not even want to think about the prospect of Lampard playing for another club. Lampard has been at Chelsea since a 2001 move from London rivals West Ham.
