Derby County manager, Frank Lampard, has said he is looking forward to seeing Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, as the The Rams take on his former club in the Carabao Cup Tuesday night at Old Trafford.
Lampard, who played under Mourinho during their time at Chelsea, said that it will be a challenge for County to face United in front of their home fans.
The Chelsea legend, however, admitted that the game will be a tough match.
“We know what we’re coming up against. A great Manchester United team that’s been put together,” Lampard was quoted by Goal as saying at a press conference ahead of the clash.
“The fact we’re on tally against one of the best teams in the Premier League is a challenge for us.
“It’s going to be a very tough task.
Lampard added: “I’m looking forward to seeing Mourinho.
“On a personal level, he was a manager who was very influential on my career.
“We’ve spoken in the last 24 hours to congratulate me but it was very brief but we talked family.
“I learned a lot from him and I appreciate it.”
The kick-off time is 8pm
