Spurs boss Mourinho scoffs at Solskjaer, Lampard: Pressure at Man Utd, Chelsea nothing like what I had

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has taken a swipe at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard.

Mourinho feels the expectations for Solskjaer at Manchester United and Lampard with Chelsea are way down from what was demanded of him when he was in charge of the two clubs.

“What I felt is that was when I was in these clubs (Chelsea and United), there was huge pressure on me and now there is not huge pressure on the coaches of these teams," said Mourinho.

“Put a little bit of pressure on them and leave us in peace, doing our job."

Lampard disagrees with his former Blues boss though, saying that he feels the pressure just as much as anyone.

“We all have pressures as managers, not just myself and Jose but any manager, not just in the Premier League," he said.

“Jose was here at Chelsea as a manager so he understands it very well. He also went to Manchester United and would have understood the pressures there very well when you spend a lot of money."
