Frank Lampard Thanks ‘Amazing Fans’ Whilst Announcing New York Departure

Frank Lampard Thanks ‘Amazing Fans’ Whilst Announcing New York Departure

Frank Lampard has announced his departure from New York City FC and extended a warm thank you to the club’s ‘amazing’ supporters in the process.

The Chelsea and England legend made the announcement via his Instagram page, just one week after the MLS side were humiliated 7-0 on aggregate by Toronto FC in the American league’s play-offs.

Lampard endured something of a difficult time with New York at first after spending most of his first year with the club on loan to Manchester City in the Premier League.

When he finally did arrive in MLS, Lampard was besieged by injuries and failed to live up to his hype.

However, his form over the past season has endeared him to the club’s fans, and his poignant goodbye this afternoon speaks to how the relationship has been repaired:

Of course, whilst he’s leaving the Big Apple, Lampard makes no mention of his next move – could he be heading back to the Premier League?

What do you think?
