The news still hasn’t quite sunk in. The “Chosen One” Jose Mourinho is bound for a revival at his formerly beloved Chelsea on a 4-year contract.
Many have always called for his return, and the fans seem to have danced with the idea of his return ever since he left in 2007. Well, 2013 has surely fulfilled their hopes and dreams for the club moving forward. Famed Russian billionaire owner Roman Abromanovich also hopes it fulfills his hopes and dreams, which includes regaining the Premier League Title and a Champions League trophy.
Over the years, Roman has poured a heavy investment into the blues and nothing has ever seemed like a safer investment in his reign than Jose Mourinho. Mourinho has been the epitome of the Chelsea clique even after his departure to Inter Milan and than more recently Real Madrid.
The chosen one has certainly missed the English Premier League and I think that this might be the beginning of a new era at Chelsea. I can see them making a big push for the title with even more passion and fury now that Mourinho has been newly re-installed into the manager role.
In 10 seasons of management, Mourinho has led his club to win its domestic league title seven times, the UEFA Champions League twice and the UEFA Cup once. Since 2002, Mourinho hasn’t gone a full calendar year without winning at least one trophy.
Manchester City and Manchester United should be fearful, considering they have no idea what kind of Chelsea they will see next season. Nonetheless, you best believe it’ll be a unpredictable, title hungry Chelsea on the pitch. They have an abundance of stars and young starlets in the likes of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Oscar, Victor Moses, etc.
Surely though, Roman will graciously hand out a large purse of money to Mourinho to provide the final touches to a world-class side.
We should assume any big name will be associated with Chelsea, and there will be a lot of moving pieces out of Southwest London like David Luiz, who Mourinho is seemingly not a fan of to the point of a possible £30 million sale to Barcelona. Andre Schurrle is coming in, and will likely be starting day in and day out in the blues’ midfield for this upcoming season.
This summer may not have a more obvious headline than Mourinho re-signing with Chelsea for his welcomed second term. Chelsea’s next season maybe less obvious than before.
