Merson hits out at Jose for having a go at Frank Lampard

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has hit out at Jose Mourinho for criticizing Frank Lampard.

“I think that’s a bit harsh, Mourinho,” Merson said on The Debate.

“The Man United game at the start of the season, that was never a 4-0 in a month of Sundays, that could have swung either way.

“Liverpool in the Super Cup, I thought Chelsea were just as good as Liverpool that day.

“Ajax are a very good team, very good team. Let’s look at the positive, they were 4-1 down and come back and drawn 4-4, probably should have won the game.

“Man United [in the Carabao Cup], he rested players. Man United probably played their best team and Chelsea rested [players], and it took a worldie goal.

“It doesn’t matter who you are as a manager, if people go and do something special on a football pitch like [Marcus] Rashford did with a 35-yard free kick when Chelsea were getting on top at the time.”

All said and done, Mourinho must remember Lampard has brought a style of play to Chelsea with no investment, which Jose could never ever bring to Stamford Bridge in two attemtps and over 5 years.
