Lampard was unveiled in New York on July 24 and admitted he was eager to keep himself fit ahead of his American adventure. “I’m going to keep fit, that’s the main thing. How I do that is not clear yet,” he said. “I’m going to sit round with people at the club and sort that out.” Lampard began his career at West Ham but moved to Stamford Bridge in 2001, making 649 appearances and becoming the Blues’ all-time top scorer with 211 goals.
