Debate: Return Of Special One, Good or Bad For Chelsea?
Please, do not call me arrogant because what I say is true; I am European Champion, I am not one out of the bottom. I think I am a special one – Jose Mourinho
On Monday, Chelsea Football Club announced the appointment of Jose Mourinho as First Team Manager.
Mourinho signed a four-year contract and will return to the club where he won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups between 2004 and 2007.
Many football analysts have argued that while Jose Mourinho rebuilt the side that had finished second under Claudio Ranieri, and turned Chelsea into the best side in England, it may be different this time round.
Mourinho wants to call the shots but the 2013 version of the Blues is not the same beast as the 2004 incarnation.
What is evident, unquestioned, is that Mourinho inherits a small and unbalanced squad, which must be significantly replenished.
In this debate, two sport analysts examine the significance of Mourinho’s return to Chelsea.
