Carabao Cup: Mourinho reveals details of touchline clash with Lampard as Chelsea crash out




Tottenham Hotspur boss, Jose Mourinho, has given details of his touchline spat with Frank Lampard, as they defeated Chelsea on penalties to qualify for the Carabao Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night.
Mourinho and Lampard exchanged strong words shortly after Timo Werner gave the visitors a 1-0 lead in the first half.
However, Erik Lamela equalized for Spurs late in the game and the tie had to be decided by spot kicks.
Each side converted their first four kicks, until Mason Mount missed for Chelsea.
Speaking about his spat with his former player after the game, Mourinho told Sky Sports: “With Frank, the most important thing is my feelings towards him rather than any words we exchanged… He always gave me everything he had as a player and I will never forget that.
“My feelings towards him will always be feelings of how much I owe him for how much of an incredible player and friend he was. The only thing I was telling him, just an opinion of an old coach to a young talented coach, which was when the players need us, it is when they are losing. When they are winning we don’t need to be the protagonists of the touchline, we need to be there when they are losing.
“In the last match when they were losing 3-0 [against West Brom] I felt really sorry for him because he was sad and quiet in his chair. In terms of football, I can’t teach him anything. He knows football, it is just an opinion, stay on the touchline when your team is losing and stay calm when your team is winning.”
