Well there is a sentence most Premier League fans never thought they would end up saying, but according to BBC Sport, it is true.
The Chelsea legend is set to join the Champions of England on loan until the MLS season starts, and whilst some Chelsea fans have taken it rather well, claiming that Lampard is a legend and that will never change, others feel rather betrayed by their former star – so much so, it is making the Arsenal fan’s meltdown over the Cesc Fabregas saga look like child’s play.
According to reports, Lampard is set to be included in the Premier League and Champions League squads, and despite asking not to play against his former club Chelsea, will be called upon when needed according to City boss Manuel Pellegrini.
Chelsea fans. What on earth do you think of this move? Is it the ultimate betrayal or can Lampard do what he wants after such service to the club? Let us know your thoughts below or tweet us @LaFootyettes.
