What Jose Mourinho and Frank Lampard text about ahead of Chelsea vs Tottenham

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has opened up about his relationship with Tottenham’s Jose Mourinho.

The former England midfielder worked with the Portuguese manager across two separate spells in west London while winning two Premier League titles.

Lampard has now detailed what they do talk about, and why he wanted to learn as much as possible from Mourinho during their time together between 2004 and 2007.

“It’s not like we chat too much, but I’ve got no problem with him. We had a little bit on the line when we played in the Carabao Cup this season but, again, it’s that competitive edge.

“It just feels natural to me that when I go up against people I worked with, I want to beat them. I’m sure Jose would be very honest about that, too.”
