When Frank Lampard Had The Last Laugh Against Stoke City

When Frank Lampard Had The Last Laugh Against Stoke City

Frank Lampard and angry Stoke City fans resulted in a truly classic football clip back in 2015.

The England legend was on the bench for Manchester City's 4-1 victory away at the bet365 stadium when he was met with a torrent of abuse from the fans in the stands as he warmed up.

Lampard was repeatedly called a "wanker" by the Stoke faithful while he was going through his stretches and seemed to quite enjoy it.

And it was 'Super Frank' who had the last laugh as at the exact moment he was being abused, City found the net and he couldn't help but crack a smile.


Lampard had initially joined Manuel Pellegrini's side on a short-term loan to help build up his fitness before his stint with sister club New York City but ended up seeing out the full season and ending his playing career in English football with the City.

He made a total of 38 appearances for City, scoring eight goals. Of course, the most memorable was the equaliser against his beloved Chelsea to salvage a point for 10-man City at the Etihad Stadium.

On as a late second half substitute, Lampard bundled home from James Milner's cross in the 85th minute and refused to celebrate out of respect for the club he holds the all-time goalscoring record for.

Speaking about the dramatic goal post-match, Lampard told Sky Sports: "It's a really difficult one. I'd be unprofessional if I didn't come on and do my job, so I was trying to get into the box and it was a great ball back from Milly.

"It's a tough one for me. I had 13 amazing years with the Chelsea fans, so I am mixed with it. I am obviously pleased the team I play for got a draw.

"I am a little lost for words. I didn't expect to come on and score like that. I came on and the Chelsea fans were singing, and that's emotional. Then I am playing for this club, who have taken me in brilliantly as well, so I am really stuck in the middle here."
