While attending the FIFA Interactive World Cup finals, the midfielder was asked if he thought Mourinho could bring back the glory days at Old Trafford.
Lampard told Goal.com: "I think Mourinho can manage anywhere in the world."

The former Blues man backed up his statement with various examples that emphasise the Portuguese's managerial qualities.
He added: "I think he’s shown it with his record and whether it’s with Porto, a so-called smaller team in Europe; Chelsea, the success he had there; Inter, again taking a team that’s hardly won the Champions League to go and win it; Real Madrid."
The 37-year-old insists that whilst it would be no easy task managing United, Mourinho is capable of handling the pressure.
"No job will be too much for him," he continued. "[Manchester United is] not an easy job, similar to Antonio Conte with Chelsea [the Italian is expected to take over in the summer], but he certainly has the attributes to do it."
Mourinho's second spell with Chelsea came to an end in December after guiding them to the Premier League title just six months previously.
The Guardian reports the Portuguese has signed a pre-contract agreement with the Red Devils that would see him replace Louis van Gaal at the end of the season.
Should he not be appointed by June 1, Mourinho could be entitled to £15 million in compensation from the Old Trafford outfit.
Hailed as the one of the best managers of his generation, the 53-year-old is eager to take over at the Theatre of Dreams, yet scepticism remains of whether he would be the right appointment.
United registered a vital win over rivals Manchester City on Sunday and are on course to challenge for a top four spot.
