Frank Lampard has revisited as manager the famous and emotional night when he played against Liverpool back in 2008.
It was an emotional day for Frank as his mother Pat Lampard had just passed away but Frank still played and scored a brilliant penalty amongst other contributions in the match.
His voice wavering on Monday night, Lampard said: “Without a doubt that was the most emotional moment.
“A very emotional night on a personal level. I didn’t need an extra bond with the Chelsea supporters and the club, but what happened on that night and with the fans in the stadium, on such a huge game for the club, it is something that kicked on everything about how I feel about this club.
“That is the magic of the Champions League. I will be proud to see my team run out in this competition. I had multiple incredible nights in the Champions League, and some bad ones. It is the ultimate in club football.”
“There is something about nights at Stamford Bridge, about the Champions League music – and I want to experience it on this side of the fence.”
He said: “It is different. The main thing I noticed as a player was that your concentration levels and focus have to be absolutely spot on.
“The higher level of player in the Champions League and different style can sometimes surprise you. But I have belief in my players.”
