Frank Lampard

Date of birth: 20 June 1978
Nationality:
English
Playing career:
West Ham, Swansea (loan), Chelsea, Manchester City, New York City
Coaching career: Derby, Chelsea

• The son of former West Ham left-back Frank Lampard Sr, he started his career with the Hammers as an apprentice and had a short spell on loan at Swansea before making his debut for the east London outfit. Moved across London to join Chelsea in 2001.

• A key figure in Chelsea's back-to-back title wins in 2004/05 and 2005/06, he equalised in the 2008 UEFA Champions League final defeat against Manchester United and scored the winner in the 2009 FA Cup decider versus Everton.

• Played a key role in Chelsea's remarkable 2012 UEFA Champions League success by converting penalties in successive rounds against Napoli and Benfica and another in the final shoot-out win against Bayern München. Surpassed Bobby Tambling's club record of 202 goals with a second-half double against Aston Villa in May 2013 and captained Chelsea to UEFA Europa League glory at the expense of Benfica in Amsterdam four days later.

• First capped by England in 1999, he scored three times at UEFA EURO 2004, his first major tournament; also featured at the FIFA World Cup in 2006 and 2010, plus UEFA EURO 2012, before retiring from international football after the 2014 World Cup having scored 29 goals in 106 England appearances, including a record nine penalties.

• Ended a 13-year playing association with Chelsea in 2014, going on to spend a year with both Manchester City and New York City before announcing his retirement in February 2017. Appointed Derby manager in May 2018, he took the club to the Championship play-off final in his sole season in charge; returned to Stamford Bridge as manager in July 2019 to succeed Maurizio Sarri, his Chelsea side losing on penalties to Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup in Lampard's second match in charge.

Nationality: Spanish
Playing career: Barcelona, Celta Vigo, Real Madrid, Bordeaux (loan), Zaragoza, New York Red Bulls
Coaching career: Spain U16, Spain U21, Spain U17, Spain (assistant), Real Madrid (assistant), Valencia

• After a year with Celta, Celades became one of a select bunch of players to have played for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, winning a further two league titles as well as picking up a UEFA Champions League winners' medal in 2002, though he was not involved in the final win against Bayer Leverkusen.

• He also had spells with Bordeaux and Zaragoza and spent a season in the United States with New York Red Bulls before retiring in 2009. Won four caps for Spain and was part of their 1998 FIFA World Cup squad.

• Celades took charge of Spain's Under-16 squad in 2013, before being promoted to U21 coach following Julen Lopetegui's departure for Porto a year later. He led La Rojita to the final of the 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship, which they lost to Germany.

• In August 2018 he was appointed as Lopetegui's assistant at Real Madrid, having previously served under him with the senior Spanish national team, but left the post at the end of October following Lopetegui's dismissal; took his first position as a club head coach in September 2019, succeeding Marcelino at Valencia.
