Senior Manchester City players have been given a tour of the club's new £200 million training complex.
Members of the club's first team have been taking a first look at the new surroundings which include training facilities for players of all levels, on-site accommodation, 16 pitches and a 7,000-capacity stadium.
One mural within the new centre includes a message from club owner Sheikh Mansour, which reads: 'My intention is that Manchester has the very best people at its disposal, both on and off the field.'
Lampard told City's YouTube channel: "Obviously being new to the club I've heard all the lads talking about it (the new centre) and being excited themselves.
"I've heard so many amazing things and think we're going to be very lucky to be working here.
"I did love Carrington because there was a real kind of tradition. For a club like City now - and the way it's moving forward so quickly - I think this is such an important part of the next stage."
