Lampard targets 'greatest achievement'

Published Add your comment

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says a Champions League win on Saturday would be the club's best ever achievement.

Lampard is set to captain the Blues in the absence of John Terry, and the England international could become the first Chelsea player to lead the club to Champions League glory.

The 33-year-old has experienced his fair share of success already at Stamford Bridge - winning three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two League Cups - but European success has so far proved elusive.

"I'm very pleased and proud of the career I've had here," said Lampard. "It would be the greatest achievement, for sure. It would certainly be Chelsea's best ever feat."

Lampard is looking forward to leading out the Blues against Bayern, but admits it will be a difficult test without Terry, Ramires, Branislav Ivanovic and Raul Meireles.

"It is a massive challenge. Those four are probably some of our best performers of the season. John is a top defender and obviously our captain but in Gary Cahill and David Luiz we have good cover."

Cahill and Luiz face a race against time to be fit for the final but Chelsea are hopeful both will be available. They will need to be on top form to stop the formidable Bayern Munich attacking trio of Mario Gomez, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery but Lampard is backing his defenders to keep them quiet.

"A lot of teams could lose their two centre-halves and not be so confident but I am confident in them. We have to stop Bayern. It will be a battleground," said Lampard.
