Frank Lampard will leave Chelsea with plaudits from the club he served for 13 years ringing in his ears. The 35-year-old confirmed in a statement on Monday evening that he had played his last game for the Blues and will seek a new challenge after the World Cup.
Fellow England midfielder James Milner said: "He's not finished yet. He's still got that quality and still has the goals, so I am sure he'll have plenty of offers and he will choose what is right.
Goalkeeper Petr Cech was the first of Lampard's Chelsea team-mates to pay tribute: "It has been a privilege to have played with a true cfc legend and one of the most influential PL players ever".
