Lampard admits basing his childern's book villains on Chelsea pals!

Frank Lampard admits he bases the villains in his children's books on former Chelsea teammates.

The former Chelsea midfielder has penned a series of books - Frankie's Magic Football - which tell the tales of a group of friends who are whisked off on incredible adventures by a magical football.

And, when asked who provided the inspiration for the bad guys, Lampard, who played alongside the likes of John Terry and Ashley Cole, said: "Some of the characters in my series are based on the team members I play football with.

"It's always fun to think about who could be the next character when I'm playing football with them."
