Chelsea boss Mourinho: Difficult to tell Lampard his time up

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says it was very difficult informing Frank Lampard he would not be getting a new deal.

Lampard becomes a free agent at the end of the month.

Mourinho said: "You can't imagine how difficult it was. I think only Frank knows that, but at the same time I can feel some happiness about the process because, for sure, he comes back to Chelsea.

"He can be a coach, he can start at the academy, he can start being my assistant at the same time because he is doing his coaching badges, or he can start in a different role."
