According to the 30-year-old defender,working under Lampard is a golden opportunity no other club could offer him.
“Sometimes you never know where football will take you but for me, it’s a dream to play in England so getting the opportunity to play here is amazing”
”I had other offers from abroad so when my agent called me and said Derby were interested and they had put an offer to us, with Frank Lampard, I said there is no second choice.
”That should be the first choice because for me, I’ve known about him since he was at Chelsea as a player and he has been my hero and someone I’ve always enjoyed watching play football.
‘He is a legend so when he told me about Derby and Lampard, I’ve always watched the Championship and known about the passion” Ambrose Efe told RamsTV.
