Chelsea star Lampard signs up to write children's books

Chelsea star Frank Lampard is set to write children's books.

The Daily Mail says the midfielder, who is out of contract at the west London club at the end of this season, is writing a series of books, called Frankie’s Magic Football, for children aged five and over.

Publishers Little Brown said the books will follow the adventures of school boy Frankie, his football-loving friends, and pet dog Max.

Lampard said: "I first had the idea of Frankie and his Magic Football when reading stories to my own children.

"Sport and reading are two essentials for us at home, so I decided to make up my own football stories and adventures.

"The characters are loosely based on friends and team mates I’ve played with over the years. I am delighted that Little Brown liked the stories as much as my children and will be publishing the Frankie’s Magic Football series."
