Frank Lampard joins New York City FC of MLS

The newest team in Major League Soccer is doing its part to fill Yankee Stadium with stars. New York City FC introduced Frank Lampard in Brooklyn on Thursday after signing the 36-year-old former Chelsea midfielder to a two-year contract. “Why not New York? Talk about ticking all the boxes. I want to carry on challenging myself.” Lampard said at a news conference. “That’s a great challenge, isn’t it? City of hopes and dreams. That’s where you want to go to and play isn’t it?” The club owned by Manchester City of the Premier League and the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball previously signed David Villa of Atletico Madrid. Both City and Atletico won league championships last year. Lampard has scored 211 goals for England and Chelsea. – AP
