Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has insisted it would be a "great thing" if ex-manager Jose Mourinho was to rejoin the club come the end of the season.
It has been quite a turbulent season for Chelsea as they started with Roberto Di Matteo at the helm, who was soon to be replaced by interim-manager Rafael Benitez.
The Spaniard has been a hate-figure at the club since being appointed back in November, and after the club's FA Cup tie against Middlesborough, Benitez confirmed that he would be leaving once the season ends.
The news of his departure sparked fierce reports that Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho could return to the club as he is not a popular figure in Spain and he wants to return to a place where he was loved.
Chelsea legend Lampard worked very well with Mourinho when the Portuguese was first at the club and together they won two Premier League titles and three other major titles and the midfield-man believes it would be a great thing if he was to return to Stamford Bridge.
"I think it would be a great thing for the club, I think he is a fantastic manager," Lampard said. "I've seen speculation before and a completely different manager walks through the door so we never know on that front but he is certainly one of the greatest managers, if not the greatest, in world football, so I'm sure the club and the fans will be happy to have him."
As for Lampard's future, that is also still unclear as it still looks like the club are not prepared to offer him a new contract despite putting in a string of fine performances.
When asked about his future, he confirmed that he still wants to stay on at Chelsea.
"Yes I would, but let's see what happens," he replied. "I've always said I want to spend all my career here. I think everyone knows that.'
