Lampard on course for pre-season return

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard will be ready for the start of pre-season training.

Lampard was forced to withdraw from England’s squad for this summer’s European Championship because of a thigh injury.

But Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo believes the 34-year-old will be back to full fitness before the new campaign gets under way.

Di Matteo said: “I expect him to return healthy and fit. I’ve spoken to him and he’s’s feeling very good and is looking forward to next season.”
