Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has once again praised Real Madrid manager José Mourinho, who is widely expected to return to the club for a second spell in the summer, as the best manager he has ever seen in his career.

Lampard is especially close with Mourinho, and he acknowledges that it was the Portuguese who made him into one of the best midfielders in the world. Lampard recently ended speculation about his future by signing a one-year contract with the club. According to Lampard, Mourinho has an aura around him that makes him extremely special.
