Juventus president Andrea Agnelli, also chairman of the European Club Association, has proposed a new format for Europe's elite competition that would see the number of group-stage games each team has to play increased from six to 10. He has also backed the introduction of promotion and relegation:
In such a scenario, finalists would have to play 17 Champions League matches in a season, plus qualifiers if necessary, as well as their domestic league and cup games.
As far as Lampard is concerned, that is not plausible, and the 2011-12 Champions League winner is happy with the format as it is now, per Sky Sports:
"As a manager, I actually feel the weight of games more than I did as a player, even though I was running around as a player. As a manager, you're thinking about how can you keep the team fresh, and it's a challenge with all the competitions we have now.
"If you ask me can we play more European games, I personally don't believe you can fit them in amongst our busy schedule. I would find it hard to keep the quality level and the freshness within the players. If you did do that there would be a lot of discussion about how that would work practically. At the minute I think the level is about right. I like the format personally."
Lampard, 41, won his first Champions League game as a manager earlier this month when Tammy Abraham and Willian netted in a 2-1 victory over Lille.
That win was part of a run of four consecutive victories for the Blues before the international break.
They are back in action against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and will be angling to break into the Premier League's top four with another win:
The Magpies are just a point above the relegation zone at the moment, but Chelsea cannot afford to be complacent for the visit of Steve Bruce's side.
After the Newcastle fixture, Lampard's side are then back in European action when they visit Ajax on Wednesday.
The Dutch champions made the semi-finals of the Champions League last term and are in brilliant form at the moment having not lost a match since May.
