Prior to today’s game at Tottenham, Frank Lampard has paid tribute to Martin Peters, the England World Cup winner who passed away yesterday.
Peters, who scored in the famous win at Wembley over West Germany in 1966, played for today’s opponents but his first club was West Ham where he was a team-mate of Lampard’s father.The Chelsea manager said:‘It is very sad. He was a legend of the game, part of the era that won the World Cup and although I did not know him so well myself, a gentleman by all accounts.‘He is certainly in my thoughts and everyone at Chelsea’s thoughts are with his family. Quite rightly he will have the respect of football in the moment we will have for him before the game.’There was a minute’s applause before the match. Both teams wore black armbands.
