Jose Mourinho and Frank Lampard are known to have a very good relationship, but a bizarre scene happened on the touchline, as both managers were seen exchanging words during the keenly contested Carabao Cup fourth round game.

Timo Werner had put Chelsea ahead with a fine finish in the first half, and with both managers urging their side on, Mourinho soon became agitated on the touchline.

Mourinho then seemed irritated with Lampard’s touchline antics, and mocked the Blues boss for being quiet when West Brom were 3-0 ahead of Chelsea in the first, during last weekend’s game.

At some point in the first half, Erik Lamela was penalised for putting a hand in Kurt Zouma’s face, and Mourinho got infuriated after the referee’s decision and was caught exchanging words with Lampard.

Mourinho seemed to be telling Lampard that he was talking too much on the sidelines, and used the first-half of the West Brom game to mock his former player.

According to the Telegraph, Mourinho yelled: “F*g hell Frank, when you’re losing 3-0 you’re not standing up here.”

Lampard seemed to see their exchange as funny, and was later caught smiling on camera. But it was Jose Mourinho who got the last laugh as Spurs equalised late in the game and won the match on penalties.
