'It's a big challenge for us as a team,' Lampard said

'We know that with the difficulties of the ban and where we're at. But it shouldn't take away from the great challenge that it is to try to do well in [the Champions League].

'I think the Premier League is so strong and that is clear when you have two teams [like Man City and Liverpool]. Manchester City are clearly absolutely a top team in world football.'

'I think the English teams are strong at the moment and that continues because I think that's for us in England and the Premier League.'

Lampard continues by adding that the Club wants to be in the competition every year and that last season performance actually helped them to get the elite status.

'It's important for us, it's where we want to be. It gets tougher every year, coming third last year and winning the Europa League gets them that [elite] status. It is where we want to be,' Lampard added

'I had some great nights in it, great moments and great memories. Talking about the players, they want to play in it and show what we are about.'

'It is nice that we are there, It means that we need to keep our league performances up now to be there next year and tackle it head-on.'

'It is the greatest club competition in football and I was lucky enough to win it once. I'm looking forward to working in it as a manager.'
