Former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said that only time will tell if his protege Frank Lampard would be a success at Stamford Bridge.

Jose Mourinho talked about Lampard and Chelsea in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports.

According to him, Frank Lampard would be assessed as new Chelsea manager as time goes by.

Frank Lampard attained legendary status at Chelsea after emerging as their all-time leading goalscorer during his 13-year stay at Stamford Bridge.

The 41-year-old scored 211 goals for Chelsea between 2001 and 2014.

During his time at Chelsea, Frank Lampard won three Premier League titles in addition to the 2012 Champions League title.

He was named the Chelsea manager earlier this summer after his one and only successful season at Derby County.

Lampard tasted management for the first time after his appointment as the Derby County manager last summer.

The Chelsea legend led the Rams to the Championship playoffs after a sixth-placed finish at the end of the regular season.

Derby County saw off favourites Leeds United 4-3 over two legs in the playoff semifinals before they were beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa in the final at the Wembley Stadium in May.

Aston Villa secured Premier League promotion as a result of that win.

Frank Lampard has signed a three-year contract at Chelsea as their new manager until the end of 2021/22 season.
