Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has named the top two most difficult opponents that he faced in his football career. Frank Lampard was asked about his top two opponents on the All To Play For podcast. According to him, Barcelona legends Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi are his top two most difficult opponents.

Frank Lampard surprised a lot of people by leaving out Cristiano Ronaldo out but he said that he didn't play against the Portuguese player at his peak and that his peak was at Real Madrid. Ronaldo became a Real Madrid player over a decade ago.

Ronaldo and Lampard faced off in the 2008 Champions League final in the Russian capital, Moscow. They both scored in the first half as Chelsea and Manchester United had to settle for that lone goal. Manchester United won the final on penalties after the two teams settled for a 1-1 draw. Frenchman Nicholas Anelka handed a third European title after he missed his spot kick during sudden death.
Manchester United made a big transfer coup with the return of Ronaldo this summer and he has hit the ground running with three goals in the league and four goals in all competitions. The Portugal international captain will have the opportunity to add to his goals when Aston Villa visit the Theatre of Dreams.
Ronaldo won three Premier League titles in his first spell at Manchester United and guiding the club to a fourth title could be his biggest achievement at the club. For Lampard, the Ex-Chelsea midfielder has not returned to the dugout since being sacked as the Blues manager at the start of this year. Frank Lampard has been linked with several clubs since his exit from Chelsea in January but nothing came out of those links. His successor,Thomas Tuchel led the Blues to a very good Champions League title win last season and he has already added the UEFA Super Cup to the Champions League title.
