Fans of Chelsea have flooded onto Twitter to reminisce over the playing career of the club’s manager, Frank Lampard.

On Tuesday afternoon the club’s official Twitter account shared a tweet containing a video of the, now, 41-year-old scoring a goal against Manchester United in 2005, despite the club stating 2004 (via BBC).

With the club set to face the Red Devils in a Carabao Cup clash tonight, Chelsea fans flooded the responses with memories of the Englishman’s prolific Chelsea career.

The 41-year-old Chelsea gaffer played 648 times for the Blues across a 13-year spell at Stamford Bridge, scoring 210 goals and assisting 150 in a Chelsea shirt (as per Transfermarkt).

Lampard made his first foray into club management with Derby County last season, leading the Rams to a sixth-placed finish in the Championship and a play-off final (via BBC).

Returning to the club where the Englishman spent the majority of his career during the summer (The Telegraph), Blues fans are still delighted to have Lampard at the helm.

What do we think?

The Blues’ manager simply had a fantastic career as a player, without a doubt going down as one of the all-time Chelsea legends (BBC). Even former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho ranked the midfielder as the best Premier League player of a decade back in 2016 (as per Daily Mail).

If ‘super Frank’ can boast a managerial career half as successful as his playing one, he will leave a mark on the Blues never to be forgotten.
