“I’m just doing my job” – Lampard reacts to scoring AGAINST Chelsea

459003_heroa

The 36-year-old came on as a substitute to net his

first goal for Manchester City – against his former

club – to salvage a point for the Premier League

champions

Frank Lampard admits he was “lost for words”

after his first goal for Manchester City rescued a

1-1 draw against Chelsea.

After nearly 13 years at Stamford Bridge, Lampard

left the club earlier this summer and agreed a

deal with New York City FC but joined Manchester

City on loan until January.

City, who were reduced to 10 men after Pablo

Zabaleta’s dismissal, fell behind following Andre

Schurrle’s second-half strike but Lampard, on as a

substitute, netted with five minutes remaining to

salvage a point for the Premier League

champions.

“It’s a really difficult one,” Lampard told Sky

Sports.

“I’d be unprofessional if I didn’t come on and do

my job. I tried to get back in the box, it was a

great ball from Milly [James Milner]. I had 13

amazing years with Chelsea fans. So I’m mixed

[sic] with it. Obviously, I’m really pleased the team

I play for got a draw, so it a really hard one for me

to answer.

“I’m a bit lost for words. I didn’t expect to come

on and score like that. I come on and the Chelsea

fans are signing and that’s emotional, then I’m

playing for this club who have taken me in

brilliantly as well. So I’m really stuck in the middle

here.”

“I didn’t know what I wanted from today, it was a

tough one. I suppose this can be seen as a happy

medium at the end. It’s a long season, and these

two teams, plus others will fight on, it’ll make for

an interesting Premier League.”
