Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Scott Parker ‘on shortlist to become England Under-21s boss’
LEE CARSLEY will reportedly consider his future as England Under-21s boss after the Euros this summer.
And if Carsley walks away, it’s claimed Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Scott Parker will be in the frame to replace him.

Lampard, 44, Gerrard, 42, and Parker, 42, all have experience managing in the Premier League.
The trio will be sounded out by the FA if Carsley does leave his position, according to the Daily Mail.
Carsley, 49, has previously managed Brentford and Birmingham City.
It’s said the FA are keen on bringing more ex-internationals into the fold.
Lampard and Gerrard both won over 100 caps for the England senior team, while Parker played 18 times for the Three Lions.
Parker was sacked by Belgian club Club Brugge last week after a disastrous 67-day spell in charge.
Lampard was axed by Everton earlier this year, and Gerrard was given the boot by Aston Villa last October.
That leaves all three currently out of work, and the Mail say the trio would be likely to consider the role with the Young Lions if Carsley does choose to walk away.
