Lampard’s Derby County knocked Mourinho’s Manchester United out of the EFL Cup last week
• The ex-Chelsea boss is believed to be a dead man walking at Old Trafford
• However, Lampard insists he has sympathy for his former manager
Speaking about Mourinho’s future at Man United, the legendary Chelsea midfielder said: “Everyone knows my feelings for Jose Mourinho as a manager.
“It is a tough moment. It is a moment that we will all have, that I will have at times, that every manager has.
“I have heard all his interviews lately. He is a big boy. He will get about doing his job. Of course I feel for him. They are not winning games and they want to be – it is Manchester United.
“In terms of players, it can be difficult. You need buy-in from your players and you need sometimes the right message to be coming out. I thought that as a player and I think it even more as a manager.
“And you need complete work rate on the pitch. I am not talking about individuals here, I am saying that is what you need.”
