Remember the press conference Chelsea had set for today? Well, Robinho isn’t on his way (yet). The press conference was to announce that Frank Lampard has signed a new five-year deal with the Blues.
Yes, I know, not quite as exciting as the prospect of Robinho donning the blue kit.
Lampard’s new deal means he will be sticking around a while and fighting for playing time in a loaded Chelsea midfield that includes Deco, Michael Ballack, Michael Essien, Joe Cole, John Obi-Mikel and Shaun-Wright Phillips. It will be interesting to watch Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari juggle all that talent in midfield.
What do you think of Lampard’s new deal? Shocked he didn’t go to Inter? Think it’s not that big a deal because Lampard is overrated? Think Lampard is due to have an MVP season?
