Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is the latest to have his say on the seemingly inevitable appointment of Jose Mourinho as Manchester United manager.
Mourinho has been heavily linked with the Old Trafford hot seat in recent days with sources close to the Portuguese manager claiming that it’s a “done deal.”
However, Lampard admits that he hasn’t spoken to his former manager since he was sacked by Chelsea in December but is convinced he will soon be appointed by a big club.

"I don't know. I haven't spoken to him much. I spoke to him briefly when he left Chelsea,” he told ITV’s This Morning.
"There's a bit of a merry-go-round of managers at the minute and I think he'll probably sit tight for a while and then will end up at a big club somewhere, because he's a great manager."
Lampard worked under Mourinho during his two spells in charge at Stamford Bridge and believes that the controversial character is more than capable of handling the United managerial job if he is offered it.
Cut out for the job
"If Louis van Gaal goes on, I think Mourinho's the type of manager that will certainly come into their thinking,” he said.
"He could certainly handle a club like that, that's what he's about."
Current United boss Louis van Gaal is still under contract at the Red Devils for another year and has responded angrily to any suggestions that he is set to leave to leave the club.
Mourinho and Lampard won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups during their time together at Chelsea and the pair had a great relationship.
Lampard is preparing for what could potentially be his last season as a professional footballer with the 37-year-old turning out for New York City in the United States.
