Frank Lampard says going up against Jose Mourinho will be “more than interesting” as Derby County travel to Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.

The Rams boss played under Mourinho during the Portuguese’ two spells at Chelsea, and they’ll face each other as managers in the third round of the competition on Tuesday.

Lampard says the United manager’s arrival at Chelsea from Porto in 2004 boosted his career, and he is looking forward to crossing paths again with his old boss.

“I remember being 25 and Jose Mourinho walked into the building at Chelsea and it completely brought an uplift in my career, probably through his personality and how he came in with a confidence that rubbed off on me,” said Lampard.

So on those terms it’s more than interesting to go up against him as a manager. It’s the way football is, these crazy pathways that we never know how they can cross again later on in life.

“But it’ll be nice on a personal note to go up against him but in football terms, we’re going up against Manchester United as a club, as players, as fans.”

Mourinho has recently been in touch with Lampard to congratulate him on the birth of his daughter, but the 40-year-old said there was no discussion about Tuesday’s game.
