Frank Lampard says he’s full of pride being in charge of Chelsea – “the club I love”.

The manager has declared his first season at Chelsea as “crazy”.

“My first season back at Chelsea, in management, has been a crazy one for many reasons,” Lampard told the club’s website.

“There were many challenges that I knew faced us coming into the job at the start of the season. So, to achieve Champions League football for next season gave me lots of really positive feelings for how we can move forward from here and continue to improve.

“There were some really tough moments along the way. I was very upset after the FA Cup final, because I know what it means to Chelsea to win competitions like this.

“But I think when I look back and reflect, the biggest feeling that comes through for me is the fact that I’m back here, managing the club that I love.”
