Frank Lampard is looking forward to again working with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

Having worked under Mourinho between 2004 and 2007, the midfielder was delighted to see his former manager return to the club, having extended his own contract by a year towards the end of last season.

"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

"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."
