Chelsea Fans Rage As Manchester City Call Frank Lampard A "City Legend"
Manchester City's Tweet about Frank Lampard has not gone down too well with Chelsea's lot.
Today marks the anniversary of Lampard's final game in the Premier League. He finished his career in England with Manchester City and he scored on his last ever appearance on these shores.
The legendary midfielder scored in City's two-nil victory over Southampton back in 2015.
City have remembered his goal by posting a Tweet on social media and it's got Chelsea fans talking.
"A farewell goal for Frank Lampard," City's official account wrote, while adding "City legend" accompanied with the eyes emoji.

The Blues' attempt at banter has annoyed plenty of Chelsea supporters. Here's how they reacted:
One season and he's a club legend? Small club mentality. Really pushing it so they can have actual legends

He ain't your legend. :thumbsup:

Still can't believe he actually played for City lmao

Your standards to consider someone a club legend are... unfortunate.

Lampard transferred to City in 2014 and he played 32 top flight games, scoring six league goals including a strike against his former team Chelsea.
But he failed to win any piece of silverware.
Of course, he left England to join the Major League Soccer before retiring at New York City FC.
