New York City FC chief Reyna happy for Lampard to continue with England

New York City FC chief Claudio Reyna says they'd be happy for Frank Lampard to continue playing for England.

The 36-year-old former Chelsea midfielder has won 103 caps for his country and has yet to decide whether to follow Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole into international retirement.

Reyna insists that the Manchester City owned club will support Lampard if he wants to make himself available for the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.

"We would support any player," said Reyna. "It would be great for him and great for us as well. We signed David Villa and he was representing us at a World Cup, so we would never ever tell a player not to play for their national team."
