Speaking after Chelsea defeated Lille 2-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday night, Lampard was quoted by Football London as telling reporters: “I have huge respect for him [Carlo Ancelotti], I am very sorry for him.
“I know it was a tough job for him lately.
“I saw his interview before the game and I thought it was a very typically classy interview in what seemed a very tough time for him. He always handles himself brilliantly.
“I think he can work anywhere in the world at the top level, of course.”
