Frank Lampard’s Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has recently taken over as the Chelsea manager. He is a former striker and was known to be a prolific player.

He kick-started his player career with West Ham United in 1994. He enjoyed a fairly decent season with them, however, he considered leaving because of the fans. As it turned out, they often jeered at him, something that he did not appreciate.

Then in 2001, his father, a former West Ham player himself, left due to poor treatment. That was when Frank decided that enough was enough and he left the Hammers for Chelsea FC for £11 million. He would remain with the Blues for more than a decade and was even Player of the Year on three occasions and three league titles.

After leaving Chelsea, there was a massive hullabaloo over his signing with New York City FC, but parent club Manchester City snapped him up before he could head to American shores. Finally, after the Frank Lampard transfer mess was cleared up, he finally got a chance to play for New York City FC.

Finally, he retired at the end of the 2017 season and set his sights on coaching. His first major assignment was Derby County, and he quickly established them as giant killers. For example, in September 2018, Derby stunned Manchester City in the EFL Cup, knocking them out.

In 2019, after Maurizio Sarri was given the boot, Chelsea held talks with Frank Lampard to take over the mantle. Admittedly though, his season got off to a rocky start when they got thrashed 4-0 by Manchester United. To make matters worse, they were bundled out of the UEFA Super Cup in a penalty shootout against Liverpool.

Achievements

In terms of player achievements, he helped the Blues to three Premier League titles, four FA Cup, a UEFA Champions League, a UEFA Europa League and many other accolades. He also has been awarded the Premier League Player of the Season, England Player of the Year.

Frank Lampard also has the record for the most goals as a Chelsea player, with 211. However, as a manager, he has yet to receive any accolades.

Controversies

As great a player as he was, Frank Lampard also courted controversy often. In 2014 Lampard was a free agent and signed a two-year contract with New York City FC ahead of the 2015 MLS season.

However, New York City FC’s parent club, Manchester City snapped him up for a six-month deal ending in January 2015. Initially reported as a loan, reports emerged on 31 December 2014 that Lampard had signed a short-term contract with the club as a free agent with his MLS contract not to start until the end of his Man City stint.

Then, Frank Lampard extended his stay in Manchester, which peeved off New York City fans to no end. The club was accused of dishonesty for using the player in their promotional material.

On 9 January, Manchester City admitted that Lampard had never signed a two-year contract with New York City FC. Instead, it was a non-binding “commitment” to join the team.

In 2000, Lampard, Rio Ferdinand and Kieron Dyer appeared on a sex tape at the holiday resort in Cyprus. A year later, on 23 September 2001, Lampard and three Chelsea players, were fined two weeks wages by the club for their behaviour whilst on a drinking binge on 12 September.

Lampard and the others had abused American tourists at a hotel. The incident came, mere hours after the 11 September attacks. A hotel manager stated: “they were utterly disgusting. They just didn’t seem to care about what had happened”.
