Lampard scored twice for Man City as the champions of England thrashed Sheffield Wednesday
September 25th, 2014
Frank Lampard was cheered on to the pitch by the Chelsea supporters on Sunday before the former England international bagged an equalizer for Manchester City which suggested that there is life in the old dog yet.
Lampard then scored twice against Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup, with the midfielder currently on a short-term loan from New York City, although Manuel Pellegrini has hinted that the player could yet stay for the whole season.
While Lampard is set to return to New York in January, the MLS season doesn’t actually begin until March and City’s close relationship with the American club means we could yet see the player remain at the Etihad Stadium to help the team chase the title and other pieces of silverware.
Asked if Lampard could remain for all of the campaign, Pellegrini said: “We will do what is best for the team and the player. We must talk about a lot of things but it is not impossible for him to stay here. It is an issue that we will see further down the line. We will see what happens in January and we have two or three months to decide.
“For me it is never difficult to put good players in the team. The problem is when you don’t have [good players]. He is a very important player for our team and maybe, at 36, he cannot play three games in a row.”
