Lampard- Jack Harrison Has a Great Career Ahead of Him

BY foxsports • June 30, 2017

Frank Lampard says that Jack Harrison has a great career ahead of him as he impresses in his rookie season with New York City FC.

New York City FC‘s star midfielder Frank Lampard was asked earlier this week which MLS player he has been most impressed with since moving to the MLS. After saying some of the expected big names, i.e. Giovinco and Piatti, he says the person he has truly been most impressed with has been Jack Harrison.

“[Harrison] came into the team midway through the season due to injury and completely changed things for us with brilliant pace, energy and skill on the wing for us. I think Jack’s got a huge career in the game.”

That is some pretty big praise coming from one of the best midfielders to ever play the game.

Harrison was originally a Manchester United youth player but moved to the United States to pursue different educational opportunities. In his one year at Wake Forest, Harrison was NSCAA First Team All-American, ACC Freshman of the Year, and ACC Offensive Player of the Year. He was then the number 1 pick in the SuperDraft by the Chicago Fire but then instantly traded to NYCFC.

Harrison has appeared in 16 games for Patrick Vieira’s side and has picked up 3 goals and 3 assists so far.
