It takes a lot to outshine the bride on her wedding day, but Jose Mourinho might do just that when he attends Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley’s nuptials in London on Sunday.

The former Chelsea manager is still the subject of huge interest, three days on from his Stamford Bridge sacking, and will spend the latest of his days without work at his former player’s wedding.

Mourinho was pictured on a morning stroll close to his Knightsbridge home ahead of the Sunday ceremony, hours after his old team had beaten Sunderland 3-1 in his absence.

Lampard and his television presenter fiancée Bleakley are set to wed at St Paul’s Church in west London before hosting a star-studded reception at The Arts Club in Mayfair.

The New York City midfielder is back in England, enjoying a bit of a break with Major League Soccer not set to resume until March.

And Mourinho will be the star of the show when he attends the 37-year-old’s wedding after the pair spent over four years working together at Chelsea.

Mourinho and Lampard retain a good relationship despite the Portuguese coach’s decision to allow the 106-cap former England international to leave Chelsea last year. Lampard went on to play a full season with Barclays Premier League rivals Manchester City before his New York move.

Chelsea might be a game into the post-Mourinho era, but captain John Terry still had time to think of his former manager in the wake of Saturday’s 3-1 win over Sunderland.

Chelsea dumped their title-winning boss earlier in the week, leaving Steve Holland Eddie Newton to take over for the Sunderland game before Guus Hiddink steps up until the end of the season.

Stamford Bridge saw and heard plenty of pro-Mourinho banners and chants and the former manager was in Terry’s mind too as he reflected on the victory.

‘Steve Holland and Eddie Newton and the guys have done a great job in a short space of time,’ Terry said. ‘Our thoughts are with the manager (Mourinho) because we are disappointed that it falls on his head unfortunately.’ 

Branislav Ivanovic, Pedro and Oscar got the goals in Saturday’s win, before Fabio Borini pulled one back as Chelsea were convincing winners in Mourinho’s absence.

The former Chelsea manager spent his Saturday at Brighton, witnessing a big win for his former assistant Aitor Karanka’s Middlesbrough side as they won 3-0 at the Amex Stadium.

In a statement released earlier in the day, Mourinho had confirmed his intention to keep living in London as he looks for a new job immediately with no thought given to taking a sabbatical. 

‘Jose will remain living in London and hopes he and his family will be given the opportunity to do this privately,’ a statement from the agency which represents the 52-year-old said.

‘He will not be taking a sabbatical, he isn’t tired, he doesn’t need it. He is very positive and is already looking forward.’
