Frank Lampard retires at age 38

Former England and Chelsea midfield star Frank Lampard retired on Thursday at aged 38.

After turning down a number of exciting offers to carry on playing in Britain and abroad, he said he was grateful to the Football Association for the opportunity to do his coaching badges, suggesting he may go into management.

Lampard wrote on Facebook

“After 21 incredible years I have decided that now is the right time to finish my career as a professional footballer,”

“I’m immensely proud of the trophies I’ve won, of representing my country over 100 times and of scoring more than 300 career goals.”

Lampard has scored over 211 times for the Blues and won every major club honour, netting the goals which in 2005 secured the club’s first championship title in 50 years.

Lampard also wrote

“Of course, the largest part of my heart belongs to Chelsea Football Club, a club which has given me so many great memories,”

“I will never forget the opportunity they gave me and the success that we managed to achieve together. It is impossible to give thanks individually to all the people that helped and supported me in my 13 years playing there.

“All I can say is from the day I signed until now and going forward, I’m eternally grateful for everything and to everyone. Chelsea fans gave myself and my teammates such incredible support.

“Their passion and hunger drove me on personally to give my best year after year. I couldn’t have done it without them.”
