15 years ago, Chelsea signed West Ham's Frank Lampard. 19 August 2001 became a legendary day for Chelsea fans and we understand why.
Frank Lampard scored 211 goals for Chelsea. Lampard is Chelsea's all-time leading goalscorer. Among of his goals, he scored one wonderful shoot in 2004 against Bayern in UEFA Champions League.
Chelsea fan James Clarke remerbers:
« Fresh from knocking out Barcelona in the last 16, we took on another giant of European football. And this goal was one in the eye for the detractors who (ridiculously) say Lampard only scores from penalties and deflections. Claude Makelele crossed the ball into the box, Lampard controlled the ball on his chest, to the left of the goal and with his back to the net, spun round and volleyed it past Kahn. We won 4-2. »
