When Asked about the incident, Lampard Said “We were having some fun on the line. I get on well with Jose and I think he said that to me,” Lampard said post-match.
“I commented on the fact that he seemed to speak more with the referee than he speaks with his players so it is just a moment with us.
“I have a huge respect for Jose, no matter what he says on the touchline. I think he was feeling the sense of the first half and how it was. All was well at the end of the game and that will never change
Mourinho was asked Also and here’s What he said:
“With Frank the most important thing is my feelings towards him rather than any words we exchanged,” Mourinho said.

See his Advice for Lampard:
“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 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.
