The Portuguese coach was the guest of honour at the Savoy Hotel just a few hours after watching his side beat Manchester United 3-1 at Stamford Bridge.
Lampard said: "There has never been any special over confidence or arrogance from him.
"He made us all feel like we could be champions. For me, the main thing about the manager is on the pitch and also the mental stuff around that.
"He found the perfect way to deal with every individual in his squad, and still does today.
"The individual relationships he builds is something special.
"He is the one who has all the pluses, I cannot find a fault. He drags every individual up a level, anything that is needed he is the one that takes that on and that is why he one of the most special managers around."
