Being a good and famous footballer requires having extraordinary skills. But being an extraordinary footballer also requires that one has the brilliance up in his mind that can enable him to lead.
No matter what the English boo boys think, Frank Lampard fits in the category of extraordinary footballers.
Lampard has allegedly recorded a score that exceeds 150, a result that shows his sheer intelligence and is only recorded by 0.1 percent of the English citizens.
Lampard has been leading The Blues' midfield line in style over more than 7 years. The elegant gentleman has never been recorded for unprofessional behavior and continues to be consistent.
Lampard's creativity, passing and vision shows what a good player can do without the Pele-like dribbling.
Ronaldinho, Adriano and other players who have extraordinary skills have failed in their quest to have a consistent good form. They do have the abilities, but what about the mental attributes?
Yes, the man's a genius...at least on the football pitch. Jose Mourinho tagged the former West Ham midfielder "the most professional footballer" he has ever worked with.
Lampard is now 31 and still has three years left on his Chelsea contract.
