American Lampard fan causes 'soccer' shame with awful shirt spelling

Over the past few years ‘soccer’ has seen a huge growth in popularity over in the US.

From David Beckham to Robbie Keane, many ex-Premier League stars have made the trip across the pond, yet this summer Frank Lampard’s (or should I say Lapmard) arrival at New York City has been causing a huge stir in the MLS.

So much so that one particular fan in North Carolina was proudly strolling the streets on Sunday wearing his Manchester City shirt, with 'Lapmard 18’ engraved on the back which we can assume is a terrible mistake - that or the man’s surname is Lapmard and he happened to fancy the number 18 on his back - blissfully unaware of the comedic value it would hold.

Although the fan may have been upset to discover his mistake he will have been buoyed by his team's latest result - New York City ran out 5-3 winners over Orlando on Sunday.

NYCFC were though again without Frank Lampard/Lapmard after the ex-Chelsea man was ruled out due to a prolonged leg injury.

David Villa and Andrea Pirlo starred in a much needed win for Jason Kreis’ side following an enthralling 4-4 draw at home to Toronto and a narrow defeat last time out at New England Revolution.

New York lie seventh in the Eastern Conference and welcome Montreal Impact to the Yankee Stadium on Saturday, who they can leapfrog in the league table with a win.

Lampard is again being tipped to start, although supporters in the states are again readying themselves for yet another false alarm.

Whenever the former Man City and Chelsea star does recover from injury, NYC’s hopes of obtaining a play-off spot will surely increase significantly.
