City’s win over West Brom on Saturday marked Lampard’s first start since December, despite opting to stay with the club until the end of the season in January, rather than join MLS side New York City.
“I’m very excited, and I’m very fortunate,” he told the paper.
“This part of my career, coming to City, was something I never saw coming and when I look back and think, blimey, at 36 I got asked to come to the champions and a club with this pedigree of player here.
“I’m delighted that happened as it has done, I’m delighted with the future I’ve got and the opportunity to go on and play in New York and individually try to help there, but also be part of a new football club in one of the greatest cities in the world.”
Lampard has endeared himself to the City faithful with seven goals – more than both Edin Dzeko and Stefan Jovetic.
