Manchester United defender made Chelsea legend retire

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has revealed that a conversation with Manchester United’s Luke Shaw at this summer’s World Cup lead him to believe he was probably too old to still be playing for England.

“I was having a chat with Luke Shaw and I mentioned Tony Adams and he didn’t seem to know who I was talking about,” said Lampard. “I said: ‘Are you winding me up?’ And he said: ‘Who did he play for?’ I knew then then it was time to retire.”

England were victorious without Lampard last night but they still have a long way to be included in the favourites with Will Hill for Euro 2016.
