Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hit back at Jose Mourinho’s claims about their touchline row during Chelsea’s loss to Tottenham in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.
Mourinho and Lampard were involved in a touchline row shortly after Timo Werner put Chelsea in the lead with Mourinho saying: “F hell Frank, when you’re losing 3-0 you’re not standing up here.”
When addressing his comments after the game, Mourinho insisted he was only advising Lampard about his touchline etiquette. Mourinho said: “When they are winning we don’t need to be the protagonists of the touchline, we need to be there when they are losing.”
However, ahead of Saturday’s game against Crystal Palace, Lampard has hit back at Mourinho’s claims.
Lampard said: “I don’t think any remarks made on the touchline during the game can be called advice.
“They can probably be wrapped up as advice after a game when you manage to get back in the game and win on penalties, so I don’t think that is the case.
“I would always be happy to not just take advice from fellow managers, but everything around me whether it be my players, staff, people I respect, listen to in football outside football, in life.
“I think that’s what moulds you as a manager so I don’t think the Jose incident was ever advice. It wasn’t that.”
