14 Jun 2020

Look at the Blues' current head coach's best moments as a player, 19 years since he joined the club

On this day in 2001 Frank Lampard signed for Chelsea, where he would go on to become a club legend as a player and he now resides as head coach.

The then 22-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge after six Premier League seasons in West Ham United's first team.

Lampard went on to score a total of 211 goals in all competitions for Chelsea, which made him the club's all-time record goalscorer.

He won three Premier League titles and was named the Player of the Season in 2004/05. He also won both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League in his 13 years in the Chelsea midfield.

After finishing his top-flight career at Manchester City and enjoying a successful first spell in management at Derby County, Lampard returned to Chelsea when he was appointed head coach last summer.
