Chelsea and West Ham great Frank Lampard given Outstanding Contribution to London Football prize

James Benge

Frank Lampard has been handed the Outstanding Contribution to London Football prize at the London Football Awards.

The former Chelsea and West Ham midfielder retired in February after a glittering playing career in which he won every major European club honour, over 100 England caps and in 2005 was named the second best player in the world.

Chelsea’s record goalscorer follows former Blues team-mate John Terry, who was awarded the prize last year.

Since his retirement Lampard has been training at Chelsea and has been offered an ambassadorial role at Stamford Bridge whilst he works towards his coaching badges.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, a team-mate of the 38-year-old in his early years at Upton Park, has also told Lampard he would be welcome at his boyhood club whenever he wants.
