The two teams meet tonight in the Champions League.
Jordan told the Athletic of the Blues manager: "I remember watching quite a lot of Lampard when I was growing up, he was a top, top, top player.
"What really sticks is the way he arrived late in the box, that was spectacular.
"It is something very difficult, that he made look easy. I watched him a lot, many of his games. He finished each season having scored lots of goals."
