Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has joined Frank Lampard in criticism of the Premier League over their schedule for Champions League clubs.

Mourinho has given his backing to midfielder Lampard, who also complained about the frequency of games for Chelsea in two competitions.

Mourinho added: "When a player like Frank Lampard, who has a right to speak having played an unbelievable number of seasons and matches in this club, he's played more than 100 matches with the England side, he's not a man that normally speaks a lot, he's not the type of player who is trying to show his opinion and to express his feelings.

"I think when a player like him and a man like him, expresses his feelings about that, I think this country should listen."
