Frank Lampard is on fire for New York City, and everyone is remembering what a legend he is

You might remember that, after a strange stint at Manchester City in the 2014/15 season, Frank Lampard called time on his illustrious Premier League career, and moved to America to play MLS football.

And for a short time, that was all we heard from Frank. Scoring just three goals in 10 league games, he wasn’t exactly attracting the limelight.

But now Lampard is big news, having scored 11 goals in 16 games so far this season, with the latest a dramatic injury-time winner against DC United.

Just look at that celebration!

In a time when Leicester City can win the Premier League, and Iceland can knock England out of a major tournament, it was nice to see that some things never change.

Some took to reminding those who doubted Frank that he was more than capable of dominating MLS.

Others couldn’t resist bringing up old arguments.

But the occasion was mostly a joyous one, with people revelling in the brilliance of one of England’s greatest midfielders of all time.

He really is the most remarkable goalscoring midfielder.

And all on Frank Lampard Day!
