The Chelsea manager played against some of the greatest players in the world during his time at Stamford Bridge, where he won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League.
Now he works in the dugout, where he’s hoping to guide his former playing side to further glory.
Lampard was tasked with a fresh tactical problem: to pick a seven-a-side team of some of the best players in the world that he faced during his time at Stamford Bridge.
And former Manchester United stars Rio Ferdinand and Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool hero Steven Gerrard made the cut.
Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was chosen between the sticks, with Ferdinand the only recognised defender in the side.
Frank Lampard’s dream seven-a-side team
Gerrard, Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane and Barcelona trickster Ronaldinho make up an attack-focused midfield, with Ronaldo and Lionel Messi leading the line.
Asked whether he thinks Ronaldo or Messi is the greatest of all time, Lampard told Hyundai: ‘This is a horrible question.
‘I’m going to go for Messi on pure, natural talent but what Ronaldo has done is incredible.’
‘The two I name when I say against is Xavi and Iniesta at Barcelona,’ he added.
‘They were the two midfield players. They were great players. They were kind of not the biggest and quite slight and it just shows it doesn’t matter.
‘Sometimes people think you have to be huge to be a football player. You don’t.’
