Lampard: Mourinho would be successful (again) at Chelsea

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says a return to the club for Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho would prove a great success. Mourinho led Chelsea to their first title in half a century and will become the first manager to win the Champions League with three different clubs if Real Madrid can win at Wembley.

"Jose's an absolutely fantastic manager, one of the legends of the Champions League," said Lampard.

"There's no doubt about his credentials, whether he comes to Chelsea or stays at Real Madrid or whatever club he goes to, I believe he will be successful. That's all he's ever done and from working with him I'm very, very sure of that.

"But it's not for me to talk about the decisions. I wouldn't want to undermine the current manager for the last eight or nine games.

"There's a manager in place now and although we know what seems to be coming at the end of the season I don't think it's right to speculate who the manager will be next season."
