Lampard delighted he stuck with Chelsea

November 16, 2008

Frank Lampard is "100% sure'' he made the right decision when he chose to stay at Chelsea rather than follow Jose Mourinho to Inter Milan.

Lampard carefully weighed up Inter's offer last summer and admits he was tempted for a while to rejoin his old boss in Italy.

In the end, though, the Blues' England midfielder resisted - and has no regrets.

"It was a very tough time for me personally after the death of my mum, and my head was in a spin in the summer,'' he explains in the Sunday Times.

"I didn't really know what to do and I felt it might suit me to get away and change my surroundings and my life.

"But when I came back pre-season, I realised how much I loved this place - and, through speaking to my family, I knew what I had to do. I'm sure now 100% that I made the right decision.''
