Lampard eyes more glory for old guard

Published Add your comment

Frank Lampard insisted Champions League glory should not spell the end of an era at Chelsea after finally getting his hands on the biggest prize in club football.

Lampard and the rest of the Blues' so-called 'old guard' defied the critics once again on Saturday night with another epic backs-to-the-wall victory in the final against Bayern Munich. The match was billed as a last hurrah for the likes of Lampard and matchwinner Didier Drogba amid speculation of a mass clearout at Stamford Bridge.

But Lampard claimed there was no reason why the triumph should herald a break-up of the squad that have been together for most of the past decade. "Teams are always changing, but why should we stop now?" said Lampard, the first man to captain Chelsea to the Champions League.
