The Portuguese boss got the better of his former player, as Spurs beat their London rivals on penalties to progress to the last eight of the Carabao Cup.
However, it didn’t start out as a happy reunion as the pair were involved in a heated exchange on the sidelines on around the half-hour mark, with Mourinho seemingly frustrated with the Chelsea boss continually leaving his technical area.
But, speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Lampard quickly cleared up the situation and insisted there was no animosity from his end.
He said: ‘We were having some fun, I get on well with Jose. I was saying he speaks to the referee more than his players, I have huge respect for Jose.
‘All was well at the end and that will never change.’
‘We don’t need to be the protagonist of the touchline. When they were losing the last match 3-0 [against West Brom] I was sad for him because he was down & quiet. I don’t need to tell him anything because he is a fantastic coach
The game started well for the Blues, with Timo Werner opening his account for the west London club after his move from RB Leipzig and putting his side 1-0 up.
Spurs improved in the second half, and finally got their goal in the 83rd minute through Erik Lamela, as the game went to penalties.
The spot-kicks all went in for both sides, until Mount stepped up and hit his effort against the post, sending Spurs through to the next round.
