The Manchester City midfielder was on Channel 4's Chatty Man show. While speaking with the host Alan Carr - who is openly gay - Lampard insisted that some footballers in England were homosexual.
Lampard said "We have had a couple come out afterwards.
"I have to say the game is changing a lot, there are a lot of campaigns and I feel it in the dressing rooms. I would love it if someone came out and everyone treated it with respect.
"This silly thing that we are macho and we play football is very old hat."
Lampard, 36, also stated that he will always see himself as a "Chelsea boy", because of the successful time he's spent at Stamford Bridge.
