Lampard initially stated that he didn’t how to ‘answer’ the question, before the journalist followed it up with a joke that Lampard ‘obviously isn’t devoting’ all of his ‘time’ to Chelsea.

Lampard laughed as he said: “It was tough, we had a lot of time on our hands (laughs), listen, when you say ’sleepless nights’ – I don’t get so many sleepless nights, I do work hard, sometimes I miss sleep come the evening time.

“I’m fortunate to have a very good wife – it’s our second now – she was fantastic the first time around, I’ll be putting a lot of reliance on her and obviously playing my part as much as I can but thanks for mentioning it.”

Lampard married Christine Bleakley in 2015 and they had a baby girl, Patricia Charlotte Lampard in 2018.

Lampard also has two daughters Luna and Isla from the relationship with his former partner Elen Rivas.
