Frank Lampard priced for future in management, TV and… politics!

Frank Lampard is set to be a busy man following his retirement from football, according to the latest odds.

The Chelsea legend is currently studying for his coaching badges, and 10/1 says he’s managing any Premier League side by the start of the 2018-19 campaign, with 16/1 on offer for him to one day manage the Blues.

Meanwhile, a David Beckham-esque MLS franchise launch could be on the cards at 25/1, but 16/1 says he comes back out of retirement and puts his boots on again

Lamps’ future in TV could also be very bright, with 20/1 on offer for him to star in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Failing that, he’s a 33/1 shot to appear in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2017, although a stint in the Big Brother house seems unlikely at 100/1.

Elsewhere, 250/1 says Lamps replaces Daniel Craig as the next Bond. And while the Doctor Who position is now up for grabs, the former England ace is considered a massive outsider for the role at 500/1.

And so surreal is the world of politics right now, the bookies won’t even rule out Tory Lampard running at the next general election (100/1).

A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Frank has only just hung up his boots, but his phone is unlikely to stop ringing any time soon.”

He added: “Plenty of football clubs will likely be keeping tabs, as will TV producers and even casting directors!”
