The Blues have famously rotated the man in the dugout in recent years — with SEVEN different men writing the teamsheets since Mourinho left in 2007.
From the highs of Champions League glory to the lows of Luis Felipe Scolari and Andre Villas-Boas, the approach has had mixed results.
But Chelsea’s all-time leading goalscorer Lampard reckons Mourinho has the man-management qualities to bring title glory back to Stamford Bridge ahead of a possible return.
He said: “It’s a presence and an aura and a way with people.
“He galvanises people. His own self-confidence reflects back on his teams. He did that to me personally.
“Tactically he’s fantastic. He’s very astute. As a team he sets you up brilliantly.
