Frank Lampard Retires

Lampard retires - and Carragher finally
admits his grudging respect


Frank
Lampard
announced his
retirement
from
professional
football on
Thursday,
bringing an
end to an
illustrious
career spanning 21 years.

The former England, West Ham, Chelsea, Manchester City and
New York City midfielder is best remembered for his 13 years at
Stamford Bridge, during which time he won 11 major honours.
Lampard's club-record tally of 211 goals helped Chelsea to
three Premier League titles, the Champions League, the Europa
League and six domestic cup triumphs.
He won 106 caps for his country, and Thursday's
announcement prompted former team-mates and rivals alike to
pay tribute - with Liverpool's Jamie Carragher even having a
few nice words to say about his old adversary.
After all those Chelsea battles & Frank Lampard now retiring, I
can finally admit the respect I had for him & that he was a great
player!

100 - Frank Lampard is one of three players to record both
100+ goals & 100+ assists in PL history (also Ryan Giggs &
Wayne Rooney). Elite.
