Frank Lampard has once again lavished Jose Mourinho with praise following the Portuguese coach’s return to Chelsea this month.

The 50-year-old signed a four-year deal to return to Stamford Bridge for a second time after leaving Real Madrid following three years in the Spanish capital.

Lampard won two Premier League titles under Mourinho during his first stint in west London between 2004 and 2007.

And the England international is thrilled to see the former Porto and Inter Milan boss back in the Chelsea hot-seat.

“He’s a great manager, I’ve said it a million times to the point of boring people, but I’m very fortunate to have worked under him before,” Lampard told Chelsea’s website.

“He took my game on a million miles. A lot of the reasons I moved on in the game are because of him.

“He creates a spirit in his squads that you can see from the outside is very, very strong. He’s a top class manager, we all know that.”
