Frank Lampard stuns His Former Boss José Mourinho
Frank Lampard, today stuns his former manager when he played against Mourinho’s side, Tottenham Hotspur in the ongoing English premier league.
The match was the only match many people eyes were watching.
Will Mourinho triumph his former player turn manager or we gonna see former boss dominating the game. But football, just as any other game can be unpredictable.
But even this game, the two coaches had met. In September 2018, Lampard’s side Derby County beat Mourinho’s Manchester United in penalty shootouts in the Carabao Cup.
The overall performance of the Chelsea side showed Lampard’s extraordinarily tactics and gave the visitors a deserving victory.
Like the BBC reporter put it ” this might have explained the unabashed joy as Lampard delivered a tactical masterclass to ensure almost unbroken control of Chelsea and reduce Spurs yo a disorganized mess”
Frank Lampard’ plan to put three men at the the defense with the likes of Rudiger, Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori further confused Spur’s attackers, totally overrun the plans of the midfielders of Mourinho’s side.
No one was surprised when Died was replaced with Eriksen at half time in the bid to bring in more intellectual brilliance.
It was a great and sought after win for Chelsea after losing four of their five league matches.
