Frank Lampard is back at Stamford Bridge after Chelsea finally sealed the deal to bring their greatest-ever player back as manager.
The 41-year-old Derby County boss is a Blues legend after 13 trophy-laden years at the club during his time there as a player – and now is tasked with extending that legacy in management.
Here, Sportsmail looks back on his top 10 best moments in a Chelsea shirt.
10 – Scoring in a Champions League final
The night maybe more remembered for John Terry’s slip and penalty miss before Manchester United’s victory. But scoring your club’s first ever European Cup/Champions League final goal should not be sniffed at.
Lampard claimed that honour for Chelsea in Moscow in 2008.

9 – The world’s second-best player
Lampard was rewarded handsomely on an individual level for his form during the 2004-5 season.
At home he won the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year prize and there was further recognition to come when he finished behind only Ronaldinho in the FIFA Player of the Year and Ballon d’Or votes, effectively confirming him as the game’s best midfielder at the time.

8 – Memories of 1980 as an FA Cup final matchwinner
With a chop to cut back inside Phil Neville and a swing of his left foot Lampard fired Chelsea to a 2009 FA Cup final win over Everton at Wembley. The celebration was memorable too.

7 – A Messi-esque chip at Hull
When Lionel Messi clipped a first time, left-footed chip against Real Betis earlier this year, for some it brought back memories of a Lampard strike.
He did similar, with his weaker foot, to bamboozle Hull and goalkeeper Boaz Myhill in 2008, scoring the 99th league goal of his career.

6 – Downing Bayern Munich on the turn
In the Champions League again, Lampard displayed his technical ability and eye for goal against Bayern Munich in 2005 to score another iconic goal from his incredible haul.
Controlling Claude Makelele’s pass on his chest, Lampard made light of the ball dropping behind him, reacting quickly and swivelling to hit a half-volley past Oliver Khan into the far corner.

5 – A night of emotion with tribute to mum Pat
In April 2008 Lampard showed his strength of character to inspire Chelsea into the Champions League final.
A week after the loss of his mum Pat, Lampard stepped up and scored an extra-time penalty against Liverpool, sparking emotional scenes in the celebrations from the midfielder and his team-mates.

4 – Another chip… this time at the Nou Camp
Lampard finished with 211 Chelsea goals. One of his most memorable was in 2006 against Barcelona in the Champions League, his outrageous turn-on-a-sixpence and chip from the narrowest angle to beat Victor Valdes.

3 – Leading Chelsea to Champions League glory
Winning the Champions League was the Holy Grail for Chelsea and Lampard was the skipper when they won it, standing in as captain for the suspended John Terry to lift the trophy after their dramatic 2012 win against Bayern Munich.

2 – Breaking Chelsea’s goals record
Lampard became Chelsea’s all-time top scorer at Aston Villa in May 2013 with a typical Frank Lampard goal.
A perfectly-timed burst into the box to finish off a cross was his 203rd Chelsea goal, taking him past Bobby Tambling and etching his name into the club’s record books.

1 – Bolton 2005
Without a title in 50 years, cocksure new manager Jose Mourinho predicted Chelsea would win the league at Bolton.
FLampard made it happen with an unforgettable double at the Reebok Stadium to clinch their first-ever Premier League title in 2005.
