0

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has announced his retirement from professional football.

The 38-year-old, who left New York City at the end of last year, has decided to “begin the next chapter” after a 21-year career despite offers of a contract from Premier League clubs.

Lampard retires having won 106 England caps and scored more than 300 career goals – 211 of them during a 13-year spell with Chelsea that saw him become the club’s record scorer.
