Man, oh man, oh man. In every scandal, in every coverup, there comes a point when things start unraveling. The people involved see this, and instead of biting the bullet and telling the truth, they start contradicting each other. Yesterday, it was the Premier League’s and Lampard’s agent who did that; the league said there were no agreements concerning Lampard, while his agent said that he’d signed a contract with New York City for 2015.
This morning, Frank Lampard gave it a go. The player released it on his Facebook page. And hilariously, it contradicts everything else thus far.
I want to make it completely clear about my situation as I have read a lot of lies and nonsense over the last few days. When released from Chelsea last year at the end of my contract I signed a commitment to play in NYCFC for two years starting January 1st 2015. I was then offered the chance to train and be part of the Man City squad in the interim to keep myself in the best shape going into New York.This period has since been extended by Man City and I now will start playing for NYCFC at the end of this current Premier League season. There has always been a constant dialogue between all parties in this time to find the best solution for everyone. I can say that I am very excited about arriving in New York and giving everything to the team to make us a success in the MLS as soon as possible. Thanks everyone for your ongoing support and I wish everyone a healthy and happy 2015!
