Liverpool legend Nicol: Lampard decision DISASTER for MLS and New York City FC

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol says Manchester City's decision to extend the loan of Frank Lampard is a DISASTER for New York City FC and MLS.

On Wednesday night, it was confirmed that Lampard would remain in Manchester until the end of the season after City and their sister club in New York thrashed out a deal - which was then approved by the Premier League board.

Nicol, who was the coach of fellow MLS side New England Revolution until 2011, told ESPN: "It is a disaster for that new franchise, a disaster for the MLS."
