Before Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho insisted facing Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was nothing special.

“No, it is not special. It is one more game,” Jose said.

When pressed on the matter, Mourinho added: “Because I am a professional, because as I said every time I played against my previous clubs, I belong 100% to my club and that is it.

“The only different thing will be at the end of the game I can walk from the stadium to the house.

“Even that I will not take advantage of because I will come back with my players. Even for something that will be an advantage for me I am not going to use that as an advantage.

“Seeing him is always nice. If I meet him in the street, if I meet him in a restaurant, if I meet him in a corridor of a football stadium even as an opponent is always nice but [it is] not special to play his team.

“It is not [me] against him. It is my team against his team. Nothing special.”
