As we are nearing the end of the season, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive again and the self proclaimed ‘Special One’ is said to be returning to the Premier League for next season. Currently managing Real Madrid, Jose has never hidden his desire to one day return to England after falling in love with the Premier League whilst in charge at Stamford Bridge.
The Special One desperately misses the passion and excitement of English football.
Chelsea would be the obvious destination for Mourinho, having spent a successful period at Stamford Bridge during which he won two Premier League titles in 2005 and 2006, among other domestic honours. Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City are all also likely to be interested in the charismatic manager.
Mourinho is currently in his first year of a four-year contract at Real Madrid though there are tensions behind the scenes.
Fernando Torres, claims he, along with his team-mates, would welcome the opportunity to work with Mourinho, and is quoted by The Sun as saying:
“Mourinho is a big coach and is very much wanted at Chelsea. I’ll work with him anytime but I know it’s difficult.”
The Portuguese manager made it clear he plans to return to English football as part of his future career path.
“I have, as I said before, three things to do in my career – one is to come back to English football; another thing is to win the Spanish championship, because no one has won Italian, English and Spanish titles; and another one, when I’m old, is to coach my national team. But, for now, I would like to keep winning with Inter.”
Mourinho is known among experts, players and coaches, as the greatest coach in football history and I happen to agree. I for one would be over the moon if Mourinho were to come back to the Bridge, as a supporter for many years, the Special One years is probably my favourite period. Mourinho had immense passion and commitment to the Blues and although I would be sad to see Carlo leave the Bridge, having Mourinho back would be the best thing after a pretty terrible season for both the club and fans.
Jose brought an excitement to the pitch and a real team spirit between himself and the players. He had many controversial moments for his outspokenness, but his victories at Chelsea and Porto make him one of the world’s top football managers, well regarded by both his peers and the press.
Mourinho is a modern manager with a lot of new ideas and will ensure his views are heard and acted upon by the Board. He takes on the other English team’s managers and his honesty which sometimes get’s him into trouble just adds to how behind his team he is.
Mourinho returning to the Bridge would be another turning point for Chelsea and I believe he can take us on to win the treble, he has the passion and commitment to the team to get us there!
Jose Mourinho, Jose Mourinho!
