It's been over five months since Lampard was sacked as Chelsea manager.
The 43-year-old spent 18 months at Stamford Bridge – guiding the club to fourth place and the FA Cup final in his first season in charge.
He achieved Champions League qualification whilst under a transfer embargo and without winger Eden Hazard.
And that's not something that's been forgotten about in West London with Thomas Tuchel paying tribute to Lampard after their Champions League success.
He said: "Frank had an amazing record in the group stage of the Champions League.

"He's laid the foundation to get us to finals and I will never forget it, we don't feel ashamed or have any fear to speak it out loud."
The former England international was linked with several roles over the summer.
Lampard was tipped to take the reins at Celtic, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace but all failed to materialise.
However, that hasn't deterred Frank, who revealed during a recent punditry job that he's eager to return to management.
He said: "I'm certainly not put off, I love the job, I love the challenge of it.
"I had two great experiences at Derby and then at Chelsea. I would love to get back in at the right time and the right moment."
With the managerial merry-go-round mostly over for the summer – Betfair think Lampard is likely to enter a role mid-season.
And that could be at the expense of Steve Bruce with Newcastle available at 6/1 to be Lampard's next role in management.
Norwich are close behind at 8/1 with a move Stateside to New York City FC (where Lampard made 31 appearances) also offered at 8s.
Aston Villa are next in the betting market at 10/1 while Southampton and Watford are locked together at 12/1.
Wolves, now managed by Bruno Lage, are priced at 14/1 with Marco Silva's Fulham also at 14s.
Championship duo Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough are both 16/1 shots, as are Scottish Premiership pair Celtic and Rangers.
