Chelsea fan creates Twitter thread of 'crazy facts about Frank Lampard'

Frank Lampard - Chelsea's greatest ever player?

Frank Lampard is one of the greatest to have graced English football.

As a player, he won every single trophy available with Chelsea, becoming the club's record goal scorer along the way with 210 strikes in 648 appearances in all competitions.

Many Blues fans could probably sit all day and wax lyrical about the iconic midfielder, who scored 22 goals and assisted a further 16 in just 36 games during the 2009/10 season.

But there are probably some facts about Lampard's career that most fans - Chelsea ones included - are not aware of.

Thankfully, one avid Blues supporter on Twitter has created a thread entitled 'crazy facts about Frank Lampard' and it's hard to believe all of them stem from one player.

We'll run you through the best ones below.
