This season Frank Lampard leaves the Premier League, twenty years ago, in the fall of 1995, he donned the West Ham United shirt to start his senior football career. He had been a member of West Ham's Manchester City Home Shirt 2014 - 2015youth squad for one year, and had impressed managers enough that he was called up to the senior squad. He was ultimately loaned to Swansea City for the 1995 1996 season, after just two appearances at West Ham, but his legacy in the English Premier League had begun nonetheless.

Fast-forward nearly two decades, and at the end of the month Lampard will play what could be his last game ever in the EPL. Next season, the 36-year-old midfielder will trade the Manchester City home shirt 2014 2015 for a New York City FC jersey. It will be the third big goodbye that Lampard has bid to English football in the past year, and arguably the final farewell before his eventual retirement. Celebrate his legacy with a new EPL football shirt from Soccer Box. Whether you think of Lampard as a player for West Ham, Chelsea, or Manchester City, we have official soccer jerseys available to support the great Frank Lampard!

A Stunning Career

By any measure, Frank Lampard's career in the English Premier League has made him one of the division's all time greatest players. Starting in 1997, he became a lynchpin for the West Ham United squad, averaging more than 42 appearances per season, and scoring a total of 39 goals-between league, cup, and continental play.

It wasn't until he moved on to Chelsea for the 2001 2002 season that Lampard really became the world-class player that he will be remembered as. He would spend 13 seasons at Stamford Bridge, making an overall total of 648 appearances for the club, and scoring 211 goals. He is the fourth most capped player in the history of the soccer club, and the all-time leading goal-scorer-impressive, given that he always played as midfielder and not striker.

With Chelsea, Lampard helped win three Premier League titles. He also captained the club to their first wins at the UEFA Champions League (in 2012) and the Europa League (in 2013)-borrowing leadership duties from longtime captain John Terry.

A Series of Goodbyes

Last spring, as Chelsea finished the 2013 2014 Premier League season in third place, Lampard began a series of goodbyes that will now continue with his move to New York City. Trading the Chelsea blue shirt for the Manchester City home shirt 2014 2015, Lampard finally departed Stamford Bridge after a lengthy, record-breaking season.

The departure from Chelsea wasn't the only one that Frank fans had to make peace with in 2014. Following the 2014 World Cup in Brazil-in which England performed below expectations-the star midfielder officially retired from international football. He left behind a legacy of 106 appearances and 29 goals-impressive stats that will keep him on the national team's all-time lists for years to come.

Now, Frank Lampard will make his third-and arguably, biggest-departure. Frank leaving Manchester City doesn't have the emotional resonance that his departure from Chelsea had. After all, he's only been with the club for a year, and while he's performed respectably (with 35 appearances and seven goals, overall), his best days are clearly behind him.

No, the big sense of finality this year is with Lampard's exit from the English Premier League after 20 seasons with top-flight teams. Few players have been more synonymous with the EPL over the past two decades than Frank Lampard, and his move to New York marks the end of an era for England's top football division.

With any luck, Lampard's final games in the EPL can work as a victory lap of sorts. He'll end his 20-season run on May 24th, when Manchester City face off against Southampton. Make sure you have a Manchester City home shirt 2014 2015 ready for the game: the Sky Blues are currently gunning for a second-place finish in the EPL, and it would be fitting if Lampard could help them to edge out Arsenal for that position.
