Lampard joins BT Sport as pundit – and will make debut in Community Shield

Date Posted,August 2, 2017

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has joined BT Sport ahead of the new season in a blow for Sky Sports.

Lampard retired in February after a distinguished career for club and country, ending his playing days in the States with New York City FC.

He appeared on Sky Sports during last season and impressed alongside Jamie Carragher on Monday Night Football.

But Lampard has now joined rivals BT , where he will team up with former international teammates Steven Gerrard, Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes.

The ex-England midfielder will make his debut in Sunday’s Community Shield between Chelsea and Arsenal.

“I’m looking forward to an exciting new season both here and in Europe and can’t wait to begin working with the team.”

Head of BT Sport Simon Green confirmed Lampard had “many offers, both within the game and elsewhere” upon retiring.

Earlier this summer, Lampard was linked with the manager’s position at Oxford.

BT kick off their Premier League coverage with Manchester City’s trip to newly-promoted Brighton next Saturday.

Manchester United’s Super Cup clash with Real Madrid will also be shown live on Tuesday August 8.
