However, Mourinho believes Lampard will succeed as manager at his former side, alluding to the 41-year-old’s general knowledge of football.

“He plays Champions League, he played a European Super Cup, he had already big matches in his hands, and he has to grow up with the level of experiences, which I believe he can because he has huge experience,” the Portuguese said.

“I cannot separate from the fact that football has been always in his life. He was born son of a player, he grew up the nephew of a football manager (Harry Redknapp), he became a player, he became a top player. I think he has all the conditions to succeed,” he added.

Meanwhile, despite Lampard’s shaky start to life at Stamford Bridge, he has managed to turn around the tides, with the west London side currently sitting sixth on the log.
