I never dreamed I’d get to win the Champions League with Chelsea
Chelsea went a step closer in 2008 but the Blues lost to bitter rivals Manchester United on penalties before Roberto Di Matteo’s won the Champions League following a dramatic shootout against Bayern Munich three years ago.
Lampard controversially joined Manchester City last summer ahead of a permanent switch to New York City FC after calling time on his Chelsea career, and the 36-year-old midfielder reflected on a fulfilled career.

City travel to Camp Nou on Wednesday night after a 2-1 defeat by Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie last month.
