Born to a family of footballers, Frank is considered to be one of the greatest midfield players of all time. Starting his career with West Ham United FC, he later moved to Chelsea FC in 2001 where his career went from strength-to-strength.
Frank joined Chelsea in 2001, and in January 2009, Frank made his 400th appearance for Chelsea in the club’s match against Stoke City, an achievement only nine others had managed before him, and from 2001 to 2014, he made 648 appearances for Chelsea, during which time he scored a record-breaking 211 goals for his team, which earned him the title of the club’s all-time leading goal scorer; an achievement all the more incredible as a midfield player.
In addition to his stellar career with Chelsea, Frank earned 106 England caps and was vice captain of the England team at the World Cup in Brazil (2014).
Outside of his football career, Frank has successfully published a number of children’s books under the series title ‘Frankie’s Magic Football’, and his autobiography ‘Totally Frank’ was released in 2006.
Frank was awarded an OBE in the 2015 Birthday Honours List for services to Football.
