Chelsea still in search for Andres Villas-Boas’ successor
Dismantled and Distorted, Chelsea FC will have a hard time picking themselves up from the mess that’s left of them this season. They need to defeat the resurging Arsenal for fourth place in the English Premier League in order to gain qualification for Champions League next season, but importantly they need to find a man who would lead them back to achieving top honors in English and European football.
Secretly, all Chelsea fans are hoping for the return of their beloved Jose Mourinho. The self-proclaimed “Special One” was the best manager Chelsea had in the past decade and one of the best Chelsea has seen in their history. The Portuguese came to Stamford Bridge under similar circumstances, despite of which he managed to get them numerous silverwares. Mourinho managed Chelsea for just over 3 years but in that period he morphed the club into a senior powerhouse in Europe.
After his departure from London, Mourinho went to San Siro where he managed Inter Milan and helped them achieve League titles and Champions League glory. Now, Mourinho is managing the coveted Real Madrid, a club every manager dreams about. However, The Portuguese is unhappy at Santiago Bernabeu because of the club’s politics and policies. La Liga’s two-horse race between Real Madrid and Barcelona is another reason for his misery. Due to these factors, Mourinho has time and again hinted his return to England.
Didier Drogba is just one of the many Chelsea players who would welcome Mourinho back to Stamford Bridge, although the reason for the Portuguese’s departure was a bust up with the club’s mega rich Russian owner, Roman Abramovich. Drogba reckons it “would be fun” if Mourinho returns to Chelsea.
Mourinho has been linked with a Chelsea move ever since his compatriot Andres Villas-boas received the marching orders. Villas-Boas was sacked because of Chelsea’s terrible form this season. For now, his assistant manager Roberto di Matteo has taken over the control of Chelsea on interim basis as Abramovich searches for a new man to lead the Blues.
