Frank Lampard has talked up the prospect of reuniting with former Blues boss Jose Mourinho during an interview with BBC Sport.

The 34 year old midfielder signed a new one year contract extension yesterday after leading Chelsea to a Europa League triumph in Amsterdam on Wednesday night and is now hopeful of plying his trade under the guidance of the 50 year old Portuguese boss.

“There’s no way he’ll come back and rest on any laurels or rest on anything that happened before.
“With him at the helm we are going to give it a great go.”

Lampard believes Mourinho can guide the West London club to major honours stating

“I certainly think he can because he is a workaholic. He’s got desire.

“It is not confirmed yet [but] the idea of working with him is brilliant. His talent and ability as a manager for me is the best – certainly the best I’ve worked with

“I think he will take the club on again. He has shown it with Porto, with us, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.”

Lampard’s own form has been helped by the arrival of Rafa Benitez as interim boss with the veteran midfielder racking up 15 Premier League goals and in the process beating Chelsea’s long standing goal-scoring record, held by Bobby Tambling since 1970.

Jose Mourinho is expected to leave Real Madrid this summer after an up and down three year spell that has seen the outspoken manager guide the Spanish giants to a La Liga crown and three successive Champions League semi-finals.
