Frank Lampard is convinced that Jose Mourinho will continue to be a success regardless of whether his next job is at Chelsea.

The Portuguese coach’s future has been the subject of constant speculation in recent months, and talk of him returning to the Stamford Bridge hot-seat has been heightened by his recent trips to London.

The Blues will begin their hunt for a new manager in the summer, with interim boss Rafael Benítez set to leave the club.

And Lampard, who won two Premier League titles under the Portuguese’s stewardship at Chelsea, has no doubts that the former Porto and Inter Milan coach will continue to enjoy success – even if he opts to remain in charge at Real Madrid.

“There’s no doubt about his credentials, whether he comes to Chelsea or stays at Real Madrid or whatever club he goes to, I believe he will be successful,” said Lampard.

“That’s all he’s ever done and from working with him I’m very, very sure of that.

“He is a fantastic manager and one of the legends of the Champions League.”

Chelsea travel to Liverpool on Sunday in the Premier League as the Blues look to keep their bid for a top-four finish on track.
