Lampard talks up Mourinho

Frank Lampard has talked up Jose Mourinho as he hopes for his former manager to return to Chelsea this summer.

Mourinho seems increasingly likely to move back to Stamford Bridge after he leaves Real Madrid this summer.

I think he is a fantastic manager, Lampard told the BBC. I think it would be a great thing for the club [if he returned].

I've seen speculation before and a completely different manager walks through the door so we never know on that front but he is certainly one of the greatest managers, if not the greatest, in world football, so I'm sure the club and the fans will be happy to have him."
