“There’s a lot of new challenges here, but I’m coming to a great city and I wanted to show people that I can play good football.” Lampard is still to determine what the immediate future hold on his international career.
“I have had a bit of time after the WC which was obviously a huge disappointment, but now I know where I will be playing my football next year I can make that decision.” he said
He added: “I’m going to keep fit, that’s the main thing. How I do that is not clear yet.
