Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and wife Christine rush back from family holiday in France to dodge two-week quarantine

FRANK LAMPARD has been forced to cut short his holiday in France in order to avoid a two-week quarantine.

The Chelsea manager whisked wife Christine and his three children away on a sun-soaked trip to the coastal town of Antibes.

But his days in the sunshine were scuppered following the government’s latest travel restriction rules.

As of 4am on Saturday, those coming back or travelling to France have been required to self isolate for two weeks to help avoid a second coronavirus wave.

According to the Daily Mail, Lampard rushed back to England just in time but is likely to be tested regularly as his preparations for the new season commence.

Lampard had looked in a relaxed mood on holiday as he took a dip in the ocean off the Cote d’Azur.

But the hard work never ends with plenty of work still to be done in the transfer market.

Chelsea have already landed deals for striker Timo Werner and playmaker Hakim Ziyech.

But a new left-back remains a priority, specifically Leicester’s Ben Chilwell, and Lampard also wants a new goalkeeper.

Lampard has been trusted with a healthy transfer budget after chairman Bruce Buck praised his first season in charge.

He said: “In the end we think it was a very successful season.

“I think obviously we would have been a little bit happier if we had won the FA Cup.

“But I’m sure the manager and the players were gutted not to lift the trophy.”

And Buck continued by saying Lampard is the right man for the job – and his leadership means it’s an “exciting time for Chelsea”.
