Ex-Chelsea star Lampard departs New York City

14 November 2016, 20:28

New York - Former Chelsea star Frank Lampard will leave Major League Soccer's New York City F.C. once his contract expires at the end of the year, the team announced Monday.

The 38-year-old English midfielder was signed by the North American league expansion squad in 2014 and scored 15 goals in 31 appearances, netting the team's first-ever hat trick against the Colorado Rapids this past July 30, helping NYCFC reach the playoffs for the first time.

"As my time at NYCFC comes to an end, I would like to thank so many people for the kindness and support that they have shown me over the last two years," Lampard told the team's website.

"My teammates have been a pleasure to play alongside. The amazing fans have given me incredible support and backing. I have very much enjoyed my time and I'm very grateful to have had the opportunity to play for such a great club and in such an incredible city."
