Cape Town - Frank Lampard admitted he was at a loss for words after scoring the equaliser for Manchester City against Chelsea on Sunday.
The 36-year-old midfielder, on loan from New York City, spent 13 years at Chelsea but proved to be their nemesis as he latched onto a James Milner cross in the 85th minute.
"It's a really difficult one. I'd be unprofessional if I didn't come on and do my job, so I was trying to get into the box and it was a great ball back from Milly." said Lampard.
"It's a tough one for me. I had 13 amazing years with the Chelsea fans, so I am mixed with it. I am obviously pleased the team I play for got a draw.
"I am a little lost for words." admitted Lampard after the match.
"I didn't expect to come on and score like that. I came on and the Chelsea fans were singing, and that's emotional. Then I am playing for this club, who have taken me in brilliantly as well, so I am really stuck in the middle here."
Jose Mourinho spoke very briefly about Lampard's contribution but revealed his own heartache after seeing one of his former stars come back to punish his side.
"He is a Man City player. I don't believe in these histories of passion and heart, I don't believe in these. Maybe I am too pragmatic in football." said "the Special One".
"When he decided to come to Man City, a direct competitor of Chelsea, love stories are over."
"He did his job as the super professional he is, and he did well."
