Chelsea skipper Terry: Why Lampard my inspiration

Chelsea skipper John Terry says teammate Frank Lampard is his inspiration.

Terry says Lampard's work ethic is awe inspiring.

He wrote in his column for the Daily Mail: "Hard work is not a phrase which does him justice. He's taken that to a whole new level. Sometimes you've had a really hard blow in training and come in feeling physically tired. You look around and Frank's doing some sprints, or he's got one of the goalkeepers over and someone passing him a ball and he's having a touch and finishing. It's attention to detail.

"Even today he's the same. It makes you want to train harder. He's inspirational. Frank and Gianfranco Zola are the best I've trained with.

"He's barely missed a game over 10 years and scored so many goals. There are the important goals, like the ones at Bolton when we won the Premier League, or the one against Stoke a couple of years ago when we won it in the 94th minute. He never gives up."
