You know what will hurt? Not seeing that adorable guy who was always making fun of everyone around him, joking away, laughing, crying, singing, dancing, giving his all for the club he played for; everyday in training. My eyes will always search for that cute guy with the curliest hair and that child-like smile and tears will start rolling down when I realize he won’t wear that Chelsea badge when he goes out to play any longer. Just hope he will remember us and cherish the time we spent together. You’ve surely won a million hearts. Thank you Geezer, thank you for the million smiles you spread and the love you sent our way. Please don’t forget us David!! 😢💙
Yeah, It was in Seattle preseason, the first preseason he had and we were all naked and were meeting one of his coaches as well. And we were showering, I was a bit nervous, new manager, I wanna get out of here, finish this off quickly. I mean he just turned to me and said: “You are the best player in the world.” I was like “Really?”. I mean obviously I wasn’t at the time and he said: “You are, all you need to do is win titles and go to that next level before people appreciate that you are that.” I dunno if it was a bit of kidology, I know that he respected me looking back at that time, because it was fantastic man management because at a moment when you’re at your most sensitive, he gave me a real boost. And it sticks in my mind because you know no one had ever said that to me before and whether it was kidology or not I don’t care because it meant a lot to me and I’ll never forget that. - Frank Lampard
Lamps, I’m going to miss you on and off the pitch mate. The best midfielder I’ve had the honour of playing with, you’re a true Chelsea legend. You are a real winner and an inspiration to me and everyone at Chelsea. Good luck mate.
