England star enjoyed a close working relationship with ‘Mou’ during his time in the capital.

Veteran Chelsea midfield player Frank Lampard has welcomed the potential return of Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge next season, reports the Irish Times.

The controversial and at times outspoken Portuguese is expected to leave his current position in the Spanish capital this summer, despite the 50-year-old being contracted to Los Blancos until 2016.

However, the self-styled ‘Special One’ has endured perhaps his most difficult-ever campaign in top-level management this season at the Santiago Bernabeu, with the Spanish champions set to relinquish their title to arch-rivals FC Barcelona as early as this weekend.

Meanwhile, in Europe Madrid were recently knocked out by Borussia Dortmund at the semi-final stage for the third year in a row.

However, Lampard is desperate for Mourinho to return to west London, six years after he was sacked by Blues owner Roman Abramovich, after overseeing the most successful period in the club’s history.

“I think it would be a great thing for the club,” said Lampard. “He is a successful manager and would be great for any club. He is certainly one of the greatest managers, if not the greatest, in world football.”

Mourinho won two Premier League titles, two League Cups and the FA Cup during his three-year spell in the capital.
