'You can replay that in 10 years' - Chelsea boss Lampard rules out emulating Mourinho with Spurs move

Frank Lampard was happy to see Jose Mourinho join Tottenham, but the Chelsea head coach has ruled out any chance of ever making the same move.

After a poor start to the season, Spurs sacked Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday, announcing Mourinho's arrival less than 12 hours later.

Lampard played under Mourinho in the manager's two spells at Chelsea, winning back-to-back Premier League titles during the Portuguese's first stint at Stamford Bridge.
