Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has talked up the prospect of Jose Mourinho returning from Real Madrid.

Lamps hailed the Special One who is poised for a Stamford Bridge return this summer.

The record-breaking midfielder said: "For me, Jose was the best.

"He was the first manager I came across to have a particular way.

"He knew whether a player needed a leg-up or a rollocking.

"He formed a spirit among the team that was formidable. We didn't have a group mentality to win the league but he brought that in.

"And we have seen the same thing happening for him at Inter Milan and with his Real Madrid team."
