Manchester City midfielder David Silva has named Chelsea legend and boss Frank Lampard as the best player of his era.

Asked who the best Premier League player of his era is, Silva replied: “There have been many but I’ll say Frank Lampard, especially because I played at the same time as him for many years.

“Apart from the statistics he racked up and how he played, he’s an incredible person.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea transfer target Jadon Sancho has named Lampard as one of his idols while growing up.

When asked about his heroes by the Independent last year, Sancho said: “Ronaldinho was the main guy I used to watch on YouTube.

“But I liked Frank Lampard quite a lot and Didier Drogba when they were playing for Chelsea.

“They were the three players I looked up to.”
