Frank James Lampard is an English professional footballer who plays as a central midfielder, attacking midfielder or defensive midfielder for Manchester City.
He is the all-time leading goalscorer for Chelsea, where he played for 13 years, and is considered by a number of journalists and football experts to be one of the best midfielders of his generation.
He has been described by previous record goal-scorer Bobby Tambling and long-term teammate John Terry as Chelsea's greatest ever player.
Lampard began his career at West Ham United, for whom his father Frank Lampard, Sr. had also played.
He secured a place in the first team by the 1997–98 season, and the following year helped the team finish 5th in the Premier League, their highest-ever Premier League placing.
In 2001, he moved to rival London club Chelsea for £11 million.
In 2014, he was released by Chelsea after 13 years of service.
Lampard then joined New York City FC on a two-year deal, in preparation for the club's Major League Soccer debut in 2015, as a free transfer, being loaned out to Manchester City in the meantime.
