Lampard played 38 times for Manchester City in 2014/15 and even scored his first goal against Chelsea
Chelsea fans have responded to Manchester City after the Premier League champions tweeted out a video of Frank Lampard – with the caption ‘City legend.’
After spending 13 years at Chelsea, winning numerous trophies including three league titles, Lampard left the club in 2014.
After agreeing a proposed move to New York City FC, he would then controversially join City, with his first ever goal for the club being a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw with the Blues.
The Derby County manager also netted for City in his final game against Southampton, and the club tweeted a video of the goal on Friday as an ‘On This Day’ post.
City also managed to rile up Chelsea fans everywhere with the caption they used on the post.
The Premier League champions called Lampard a ‘City legend’, but use of the eyes emoji shows they knew exactly what kind of reaction this would get.
Chelsea fans across the globe got pretty annoyed by City’s Twitter post, and you can see some of the best responses below.
While there may be plenty of debate regarding Lampard‘s legendary status at City, there is no doubt he is a true Chelsea legend.
In 648 appearances he scored 211 times, a club record, and captained the Blues in their Champions League and Europa League final victories.
Lampard’s first season in management has seen him take Derby to the Championship play-off final after a heroic effort by overturning a first leg deficit away from home against Leeds.
