Fans state that while they will miss Lampard's goal scoring form found at the end of 2016, that they aren't fully certain why the fledgling midfielder would cut his career short after only two years.. Sources were able to confirm that Lampard is looking at picking up his career in Tax Accounting at a firm in Tampa Florida.
