The tributes are coming in from Frank Lampard’s now-former Chelsea teammates as the Blues’ all-time record goalscorer leaves the club this summer.
Fernando Torres has taken to Instagram from the Spain World Cup training camp to personally thank ‘Lamps’, with whom he says it was an honour to play.
Lampard was a vocal supporter of Torres during some of his goal droughts, and was known to be one his strongest dressing room allies during his lowest points at the club.
Torres added the caption to the picture of them together:
”Thank you for everything Lamps. Top professional, top man , top player. It’s been an honour play alongside you. #chelsealegend #respect ”
