During his time as a player at Chelsea, Frank Lampard played under Jose Mourinho, Claudio Ranieri, Luiz Felipe Scolari, Carlo Ancelotti, Rafa Benitez and Guus Hiddink.

Lampard, now Chelsea boss, has revealed he was influenced by all the managers he worked under but he admits Jose Mourinho has influenced his managerial style more than any other boss.

“I’ve been influenced by all the managers I’ve played under but probably Jose (Mourinho) as much, if not more, than anyone else,” Lampard told Sky Sports News.

“He was the one at the point of my career when my performances and mind set got better, giving me a lot of confidence within the team.

“So I try to act like that with my players now, trying to have a personal relationship with them which means driving them every day to be better, trying to help them to be confident and understand what they need to do to keep going up the levels as a player.

“So I took a lot from Jose but I certainly don’t want to be typecast as trying to be a Jose person because I am my own person.”
