Frank Lampard was inducted into the Legends of Football Hall of Fame on Monday night

The Chelsea legend, who now manages Derby County, was presented the annual award at an event in London.

Lampard’s former England team-mates David Beckham and Steven Gerrard have also been inducted in the past along with the legendary Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson and Brazil great Pele.

“It’s a real honour for me to receive the Legends of Football award this year,” Lampard said in a video on the Football Legends website.

“Just seeing my name mentioned among those past winners is something to cherish.”

Lampard spent the majority of his playing career at Chelsea, where he won several major honours along with three Premier League titles and the Champions League.

The former midfielder managed a club-record goal tally of 209 strikes and added a further 150 assists in 640 games across all competitions for Chelsea.

Lampard also had spells at Manchester City and MLS side New York City in the latter stages of his playing days before retiring in 2016.
