As Frank Lampard prepares to embark on the next chapter of his spectacular career at brand-spanking new MLS franchise New York City, the Chelsea legend should take a bit of time out to explore the Big Apple before getting down to business next season.
We’ve kindly mapped out a few things England’s 36-year-old vice-captain can tick off his list while he’s in the city that never sleeps…
Throw the first pitch at the Yankees
What self-respecting celebrity would land in baseball-mad New York without taking the opportunity to sling one from the Yankees’ mound, part owners in Lampard’s new side no-less.
Don’t follow rapper 50 Cent’s lead though…
Not saying a grown-up like Frank would be homesick, but if he’s missing the King’s Road why not visit Manhattan’s historic district of Chelsea to make himself feel at home, maybe even hunt for a townhouse or two.
Eat an enormous burger and wash it down with an equally large milkshake
Considering Lamps won’t start MLS duties until next year, why not pig out in the cheeseburger capital of the world.
Watch Liverpool v Manchester City at Yankee Stadium
If Lamps can hang around in NYC until July 30 he can get another slice of British life as two of the Premier League’s big boys do battle in an exhibition match.
Take a romantic stroll with the Mrs through Central Park
There aren’t many more romantic settings than Manhattan’s greenest hang-out in which to take TV host fiancé Christine Bleakley. Buy her an ice-cream too Frank.
