In today's (Tuesday, May 28) edition of the Daily Mirror it is claimed that Lampard and ex- boss are on Burnley owner Alan Pace’s shortlist to take over. Kompany’s right-hand man Craig Bellamy is also an option after he decided against joining the icon at Bayern, with eyes firmly set on a top job either at Burnley or elsewhere.

Lampard specifically appeals to Pace as a big name that could attract a host of talented players who are keen to work with the Premier League Hall of Famer, while Burnley are attempting to widen their global appeal.

Burnley will feel that they have a strong chance of being promoted back to the English top flight at the first time of asking, with a strong foundation built under Kompany that they are keen to grow further.

Lampard had a spell back at Chelsea as interim boss when was let go by the new Clearlake decision-makers, but has been out of a job over the past 12 months as he bided his time and waited for the right project to emerge.

If Lampard’s ambitions are to coach against some of the top teams in the country, that opportunity may only be afforded to him via promotion from the Championship with a team such as Burnley.

“I’m enjoying being with the family and looking to get back at some point,” said Lampard earlier this year. Hopefully something comes up that feels right for me, I’m keen to get working again but as I reiterate, I’m enjoying family life.

“It’s an intense job so when you’re out of it, it’s nice to appreciate being around all my children. You love the job. you understand the rigours of it in the modern day. I’ve enjoyed all the clubs I’ve worked with.

"They’ve all been big challenges for different reasons. I enjoy working with players, improve players and the team, so let’s see what comes.”
