Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard is of the opinion that Portuguese manager José Mourinho will be able to repeat his success at Stamford Bridge if he arrives at the club for a second spell. Mourinho has widely been linked with a return to the club in the summer. His fall out with most of the Spanish media and the players at Real Madrid is widely expected to lead to his departure. Mourinho has hinted on several occasions this season that he may return to a club where he is loved. Mourinho enjoyed a lot of success with Chelsea, which led to him being adored by the fans even now.

During his 30 months at the club, he managed to lift six major trophies. After recently signing a one-year contract extension, Lampard believes that a possible return of Mourinho could signal another era of domination by the West London outfit. The future of Lampard was in a huge cloud of doubt only a few weeks ago, but he has managed to agree terms with Chelsea and sign a new one-year deal. He recently became the record goalscorer for the club after scoring his 203rd goal against Aston Villa. He went on to lift the Europa league title as well.

“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. 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,” said Lampard in an interview to the BBC.
