Incoming Chelsea boss Frank Lampard played under Jose Mourinho during his time at Chelsea.
Some of Lampard’s most successful times came when Jose Mourinho was the head coach with the Blues. Lampard won his first Premier League title under Mourinho at Chelsea in 2005.
Lampard is now set to become Chelsea boss after the Blues were given permission to talk to the Chelsea legend on Tuesday by Derby County.
Lampard came up against Jose Mourinho when Derby County played Manchester United in the Carabao Cup back in September 2018.
Lampard’s Derby County beat Mourinho’s Manchester United and Mourinho was impressed with the coaching style of Lampard.
Speaking after the defeat to Lampard’s Derby, Mourinho hailed Derby’s young players, speed, intensity, pressing and mentality.
With Lampard set to become Chelsea boss, fans can expect the Blues to have these traits in the team. Many Chelsea fans were frustrated with Maurizio Sarri’s Sarriball last season and will definitely love to see the Blues play with speed and intensity.
“We are playing against good teams with good young players, with speed, with intensity, they give great intensity to the game,” Mourinho told the official Manchester United website.
“They wanted to press, they pressed for every goal and we need to respect, we need to match that mentality.”
