Manchester City's tweet calling Frank Lampard a 'City Legend' has not gone down well

Manchester City v Southampton - Premier League

Manchester City absolutely dominated the English footballing landscape this season, winning all three domestic trophies available to them.

Pep Guardiola’s juggernaut side was simply unstoppable, capping their season by smashing Watford for six in the FA Cup final.

In February, the Citizens scraped past Chelsea to win the Carabao Cup in a penalty shootout, while they pipped Liverpool to the league title on the final day of the season.

Their stroll to FA Cup glory at Wembley saw them become the first men’s team to claim an unprecedented domestic treble in England.

Sadly for Guardiola though, the holy grail that is the Champions League eluded him once again as Tottenham dramatically dumped his side out at the quarter-final stage.

It has still been an incredible season, nonetheless.

City are a club often accused of having no history, but history has to be created - which is exactly what they are doing now.

However, the club has come in for criticism today after a tweet harked back to Frank Lampard’s final game for the club.

It is often forgotten that the now Derby manager spent a season at the Etihad, but City have done their best to make sure fans remember it.

Lampard netted for City in his final game and the club tweeted a video of the goal - their caption, however, has not gone down well with football fans.

“A farewell goal for Frank Lampard. City legend”


While the tweet may have been sarcastic, fans are still blasting the claim.

While Lampard is definitely a legend, it certainly isn’t at City.

The midfielder made a staggering 640 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 209 goals and registering 150 assists.

He won the Champions League, four FA Cups, three league titles, two league cups and the Europa League during his spell at Stamford Bridge.

His trophies while at City? None.

While eight goals and four assists is a decent return in one season, it’s not entirely ‘legendary’.

City might want to rethink some of their banter.
