Real Madrid boss Mourinho: Lampard true Chelsea legend - and he has plenty of years left!

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says Frank Lampard is a Chelsea legend.

Controversially, hugely-popular Lamps, 34, has been told to find a new club.

But the Special One said: "Frank Lampard will always be one of the most important players in Chelsea's history.

"I don't know how this story is going to end, what I do know is I want Frank and Chelsea to finish well."

Mourinho, too, is adamant Lampard can go on playing at the top for years. He told The Sun: "I don't believe in age - at Inter nobody runs more than Javier Zanetti and he's 39!

"I've had players in their 20s who were tired. You should measure players by performance not age."
