Ashley Cole set for Lampard reunion

Former Chelsea and Arsenal full-back could be set to link-up with Frank Lampard again, as the new Chelsea manager finalises his back-room staff.

Cole has just hung up his boots on a 21-year professional career which saw him win the Premier League with both London clubs before spells with Roma and LA Galaxy. He finished at Derby County, joining on a short-term deal in January, and helping Lampard’s former side reach the Championship play-off final, only to lose to Aston Villa at Wembley.

The 38-year old ex-England full-back worked well with Mason Mount and Fiyako Tomori, both of whom were on loan to Derby from Chelsea last season, and it is thought that he could help provide a bridge for young players looking to break into the first team at Stamford Bridge.

Cole hinted at the move by posting a cryptic Instagram message to Lampard when he was appointed which said “Good luck, see you at the Bridge”.
