As a team with a long and prestigious history, many of Chelsea FC’s players are considered among the greatest of all time. Here is a closer look at some of the greatest players the team has ever had.
Though he no longer plays, Frank Lampard was among the team’s biggest assets during his time on the field. As midfielders go, few from his generation outranked him in terms of skills and success in the sport.
In fact no other midgoaler that played in the Premier League ever scored more goals. His success in the Premier League was so noteworthy that he even won the Player of the Decade for his years on the field between 2000 and 2010.
Lampard is a second-generation player, as his father played for West Ham United. As a result, this is where Lampard started his career as an athlete in 1995.
However, he really shined during the early 2000s, when he was getting paid 1 million pounds per season to play. His West Ham United run lasted for 13 years. This is when he set the goal for the most goals, with 211.
Awards and Accolades
Throughout his sports career, Lampard earned many awards, including:
- UEFA Europa League
- UEFA Champions League
- Football League Cup (2x)
- Premiere League titles (3x)
- FA Cups (4)
He was also named the FWE Footballer of the Year.
Having spent most of his career as a forward, Jimmy Greaves set the record at number four on the list of England’s highest international goalscorers.
He was number one in England for scoring hat tricks during a game. When Jimmy played for Tottenham Hotspur’s he scored the most goals of any player in history, with 266 goals.
Thanks to his success as an athlete, Jimmy was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame.
Bobby Tambling’s sports career spanned more than four decades. During that time, he played for Chelsea FC, one of the richest football clubs, and was the first to score more goals than any other player, at 202. Overall, he scored 164 goals in league play as a member of the Chelsea team. However, Bobby also played for the League of Ireland.
These three extraordinary players are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the best in the sport. It’s not surprising that the Chelsea Football Club attracts all of the top players in the world. Together, these players have done more for football than anyone, anywhere else.
