David Villa and Frank Lampard got to know each other a little better on Wednesday as they both made their Yankee Stadium debuts.
The two former European football stars were in attendance as EPL sides Liverpool and Manchester City battled it out in the Champions Cup in New York.
Both David Villa and Frank Lampard have signed to play for New York City FC from 2015, with the new team set to make their MLS debut next March with Yankee Stadium as their home for the first campaign.
Villa took to social media to reveal his delight after hanging out with Lampard, as the two stars enjoyed a thrilling match at what will be their home ground in 2015.
"With my new @nycfc teammate Frank Lampard!!! Con mi nuevo campanero!!!!" Villa wrote on his Instagram page alongside the photo above.
Many of the fans in attendance at Yankee Stadium for the game will likely be supporting both Villa and Lampard during the 2015 MLS season.
Liverpool and City played out an entertaining 2-2 draw, before Brendan Rodgers' side prevailed 3-1 in a penalty shootout.
Lampard and Villa have taken up two of the three designated player spots that MLS sides can use for big name players.
Villa was the first to arrive, but Lampard's introduction to New York was much more interesting and brutal.
Back in 2001 on the day of the infamous 9/11 attacks on New York, Lampard and some teammates acted drunkenly while they were surrounded by US passengers who had been stranded by the no-fly decision in the US.
At the time, Lampard and his teammates were criticized by the media and fans, and this story reappeared again as he signed his contract with the MLS side.
Lampard claimed that he was a "naive young boy" at the time of the incident. As part of his attempts to make up for the incident, he announced that he has plans to go to the Ground Zero Memorial Museum.
