Jose Mourinho’s 2nd spell at the Stamford bridge seems to be on a jolly ride by all standards. After winning the title in his 2nd season this time around, he has also gone ahead to put pen to paper in an improved-deal that will keep him with the Blues till 2019. The 52 year-old first came into prominence while at Porto. The tactician helped guide one of his country’s biggest clubs to a Champions League trophy win in 2004, and his reputation as a coach has continued to increase ever since.
The Special One choosing to remain at the London club is a good thing for the management and team. Having earlier had a stint with the Blues between 2004 and 2007, he left to manage Inter following an end to his contract with the Blues on mutual consent. But during the time, he had won the EPL title twice, won an F.A Cup and a Carling Cup. His 2nd arrival has seen him guide the club to an EPL title after an initial 4-season wait. His target however remains winning the Champions League with the club, after having won it for the 2nd time with Inter Milan in 2010.
Chelsea will be hoping to maintain stability following his new contract, and the club and the coach can continue to dominate the headlines for all the good reasons, as he has claimed that the club is “the club closest to my heart”. Mourinho no doubt is one of the best coaches ever, boasting of 8 domestic titles, 9 major trophies and 2 continental trophies during his 13 year-reign with 4 clubs. The Blues can look forward to greater times with him being in charge.
