Frank Lampard had a very good relationship with Jose Mourinho during their time at the club, and the duo were very successful at Chelsea.

While Mourinho is hailed as Chelsea’s most successful manager, Lampard is hailed as one of the greatest players to have played for the club.

Lampard formed a good relationship with Mourinho that has lasted till date, and the Blues boss has revealed a key aspect of the game that he learnt from the self-acclaimed Special One.

“He was the first manager that day-to-day made me feel really close to him and worked on the mental side,” said the current Chelsea head coach.

“It was just this confidence that he gave me, which kind of formed a bond with me.

“Working with the younger players here now, I think it’s my duty to kind of form that bond with them, because they’re at the start of their journey, their career and they need to look up to not just myself, but the staff, and know what it takes to get to where they want to be.

“So, I try to form that bond with the players because I love all the young boys here, they’re good lads as well as really good players.”
