Frank Lampard: Legend.

Recommended Posts

Statement out now from Lamps.

Gutted doesn't come close, but it was coming sooner or later. Gentleman and what a legend of a player. We'll go a long time before we see anyone like him, if ever.

I think it's the right time to go even if I wish we had known before the season ended.

Greatest player we've ever had and most likely will ever have.

What an absolute legend. The word is often over-used. For Lampard, it's an understatement. Without doubt, the greatest player ever to pull on a blue shirt. Can't see anyone ever being greater. Great player, leader, winner. Just world-class. Never to be forgotten.

Surely will get a statue eventually, like Drogba. Let's keep waving that Lampard banner.

And he'll be back one day. Just know it.

Class until the end. Here's his goodbye statement:

"When I arrived at this fantastic club 13 years ago I would never have believed that I would be fortunate enough to play so many games and enjoy sharing in so much success.

"This club has become part of my life and I have so many people to thank for the opportunity. Firstly, Ken Bates, who put his neck on the line to sign me as a young player and without him I would not have even begun this experience.

"Roman Abramovich, the man who saved our Club and took us all to new levels. His desire to push the Club to the top of the football world has rubbed off on everyone.

"All the managers and coaches who have helped me develop my game during the time I have been here. I have learnt from every one of them.

"All the brilliant team mates who I have been lucky enough to train and play alongside for so long. Not just their football qualities but also the friendships I have gained along the way.

"I'd also like to give a special mention to all the staff and people behind the scenes at the club who do not receive the glory but without them the Club would simply not function.

"The club will move forward, and as a Chelsea man I have no doubt that with the quality of the players that are there, they will continue with the success that we have all enjoyed over the past seasons.

"Finally and most importantly, I would like to thank the Chelsea fans. I believe they are the greatest fans in world football. You have supported me from the moment I arrived. Not only on the pitch, but in difficult moments in my personal life off the pitch. I will never forget.

"I feel honoured to have shared so many special times with you. Bolton, Amsterdam, Munich, the list goes on and on. I, and we as a team, could not have achieved those moments without your support.

"Whatever the next challenge is for me I will always be amongst you and have Chelsea in my home and in my heart. Hopefully I will get to see you all soon to say goodbye properly. In the meantime thank you for the memories and keep making history!"

Lampard's decision to leave is perfect as he left while he is still playing at a good level and not wait till he became liability to say his good bye.

Super frank best of love whenever you decide to play next and you would be fondly remembered at the bridge as one of our own.

An honour and a pleasure to have seen him in the flesh so many times, and especially to have met the man himself.

Don't think I could so earnestly and sincerely offer such strong good wishes to anyone else I didn't know. He's made me deliriously happy so often, so I hope everything works out for him as he hopes.

Zola-esque testimonial/charity friendly at some point in the next few years please!
