Lampard grateful to Chelsea fans after West Ham move

Frank Lampard has paid tribute to Chelsea fans for their support after scoring his 100th goal for the club on Saturday.

"I was pleased to do it in front of the home fans because they have supported me since I've been at the club and I've had a great relationship with them," said former West Ham midfielder Lampard.

"To come across London is not an easy move and they backed me.

"We were a top six or eight club and then we moved to a different level, we signed a lot of big players and, for me, to have stayed in there and got 100 goals is what I'm very pleased with, I'll never forget that.

"Whatever happens to me in the future, that achievement will stay with me forever.

"My two daughters were there and I saw them when I scored my first goal, in the box in the far corner.

"The little 'un won't know too much about it but the older one is two-and-a-half and she'll be jumping up and down."
