England star could now remain at the Bridge next season after all.
Veteran Chelsea midfield player Frank Lampard has said that he was spurred on to breaking the club’s goalscoring record by Blues supporters, reports the Fulham Chronicle.
The England international scored two goals in Chelsea’s 2-1 win at struggling Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon to overtake the previous record holder Bobby Tambling.
Lampard, 34, took his tally of Chelsea goals to 203 in the Midlands and has admitted that it was the support of all the club’s fans in recent weeks that has acted as a spur for him to net the two remaining goals that he needed to pass Tambling’s total.
“I tried not to (talk about the record), but a lot of people talked about it and the fans have been brilliant – they’ve been willing me to get there,” said Lampard.
