Frank Lampard has discussed the potential of playing against Steven Gerrard in the MLS when they join New York City and LA Galaxy, respectively.

Lampard, who is currently on loan with Manchester City will join their feeder club, New York, at the end of the season, whilst Gerrard will link up with LA Galaxy after ending his 25-year spell at Anfield.

“I am pleased for Stevie,” Goal.com quotes Lampard as saying. “I think it is a very good move for him. What more can he do for Liverpool? He has had a fantastic career. It helps with the interest here, people seeing it on TV over here now.

“I look forward to being competitive against Stevie. We get on very well, particularly in our latter years as captain and vice-captain of England. I have a huge amount of respect for him and I look forward to going up against him.”

Lampard and Gerrard are expected to face each other on August 23.
