Legendary midfielder Frank Lampard will have to wait for his Major League Soccer debut after getting a calf strain in training. The 37 year old England midfielder was all set to make his debut for New York City against Toronto FC on Sunday 12th June.

Lampard signed for New York City FC in July 2014 and spent the last season on loan at their associate club Manchester City breaking most Chelsea fans’ hearts. Lampard arrived back to America after his loan spell at the blue half of Manchester where he helped his tem finish second in the Premier League table.

Lampard has 106 international caps for England and he is considered as a Chelsea legend and won every possible trophy with the Blues. I’m hugely disappointed to be missing out on Sunday’s game, which I have been really looking forward to, Lampard told the club’s official website (www.nycfc.com) on Friday.

I’ve been feeling great in training and have loved working with the squad. Unfortunately I sustained a small strain to me calf during a session. The good news is that I should be back in full training next week.

 During a glittering 13-year career at Chelsea, Lampard won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League and left Stamford Bridge as the club’s record goalscorer. Lampard is one of three of New York City’s major close-season signings alongside the arrivals of World Cup winners in Spaniard David Villa and Italy’s Andrea Pirlo.

Former England and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is expected to make his Los Angeles Galaxy debut in their International Champions Cup match against Club America on Saturday.
