Chelsea skipper John Terry has declared Frank Lampard the club's greatest player.

Lampard signed a six-month loan deal with Manchester City having already agreed to play for MLS side New York City next March.

Terry told Chelsea TV: “To me there is no doubt [he’s the best]. Before that there was Gianfranco Zola but Lampard has been an absolute legend here and his legacy will remain ever.

“It’s a legacy for the younger boys to come and try and fill those big boots and replicate what he’s done. That will be very tough for someone but he’s an absolute hero for the fans, with the players as well and how he pushed us individually and collectively.

“He has been an idol and someone I inspired to be like in training. Around the place he was a great character but footballing wise I have never come across someone who works as hard as he does to improve his game.”
