Derby boss Lampard: Mourinho congratulated me before penalties

Derby County boss Frank Lampard says Manchester United rival Jose Mourinho congratulated him before the end of last night's Carabao Cup shock.

Mourinho was humble in defeat last night, Lampard revealed.

He said, “He (Mourinho) said what a great performance it was from the [Derby] team. I appreciate that because it's not easy in defeat in that last moment.

“I think he actually said that before the penalties, but I appreciate it.

“Jose was very welcoming as a whole. We obviously know each other, and he came and spoke to me before, we spoke during and afterwards. It was an honour for me to go up against him."
