Chelsea legend Frank Lampard spent 13 seasons at Chelsea, winning three Premier League trophies and the Champions League once.

In 2014, he joined rivals Manchester City for a season after he was released by Chelsea before moving to the US to play for New York City.

Early during the 2014/15 season, Lampard scored a late equalizer for Manchester City, which ended Chelsea’s 100 per cent start to the season.

Lampard has revealed it was tough to score against Chelsea but he insists he had to do his job.

“It was tough, it was really tough, listen, I had to do my job,” Lampard told Copa90.

“Everyone tells me they had a feeling I was going to score, I only came on for 20 minutes. It’s one of those things that happens in football.

“The Chelsea fans were incredible for me and going to Man City was a massive choice for me.

“I didn’t want to lose 13 years, I had a great bond with the Chelsea fans, and I was like ‘ah, is this going to taint 13 years?’

“I don’t think it did in the end, and [going to Man City] was a great opportunity for me.

“I loved my time at City, and scoring that goal, I was concerned how it would be but [the Chelsea fans’] reaction afterwards was incredible, and since then.”
