Frank Lampard is featured in The Sun this morning giving an in depth interview in which Lampard speaks of his age, his passion for the game and what keeps him going.

He said:
"I think the age thing has changed. People are pretty quick to write you off once you get into your 30s but they have proved to be a lot of players' best years.

Ryan Giggs was outstanding against us in the Champions League quarter-final last season - and in a lot of other games - at 37 years old.

If you look after yourself, keep motivated, which is very important, know your body, do the right things and manage yourself well, then you can certainly have your best years in your 30s.

There's a lovely mix at this level. I love playing, I love the sport and the basics of going out to play football. But I also love the stuff that comes with it at the top.

I'd still enjoy playing if it were at Sunday league level, but I like the cut-throat mentality at this level, where you have to keep on top of your game no matter what because, if you drop, you're out of it.

That's what drives me on, I like being at the top. You should always be self-driven, regardless.

But the competition of playing at a club like this means that you know, year in, year out, things will move on, players will come in or move up from the youth team and you have to stay on top of your game."

I'm self-driven. I want to improve myself again, I want to have a good season, I want to have a full season without injury and, of course, I want to win things.

I come back with that attitude every year. Once you've had a month off, you start getting hungry to return and win things for your club.

When you get older you do understand that the end will come, so I'm just trying to enjoy it and prolong it. I will try to stay playing and being able to contribute in a positive way to the club for as long as I possibly can.

I feel very fresh and, after missing pre-season with injury last year, it's nice to come back without those worries and to feel fresh from the start. I'm enjoying the thought of getting really fit and to get up and running really quickly."
Frank Lampard is an example to young players trying to make their way into the game today. Just listen to the man, at 33 he is as motivated as ever to stay on top of his game and at the top level and is a credit to the game.

How many times this summer have you heard someone you know say that Chelsea need to get rid of the likes of Frank Lampard and John Terry as they are "past it" and I tell you something it really winds me up!.

If anything looking at Lampard this pre season, he looks as fit as he ever has been and will still have the fantastic engine he has to get up and down that pitch week in, week out. I can really see Lampard having another 20+ goals this season and a telling contribution to our title challenge.

What we have to remember about Lampard is he has played for some of the biggest managers in the World, has played alongside some of the biggest names in world football and has held his own. It's because he works hard at his game and is his biggest critic.

He said it the other day, if he feels he can't get up and down that pitch then he will stop. I personally believe that he is far from stopping and will hopefully prove all those doubters wrong once again this season.

I posted a video of Lampard's top 25 goals the other day and here it is again as once again it's totally relevant.

I honestly believe we will see plenty more of Frank Lampard beginning with this season. He really is "Super Frank!".
