The “Special One” Jose Mourinho Makes Chelsea Return

Jose Mourinho will make his long-awaited return to the Stamford Bridge dugout after Chelsea FC confirmed the charismatic Portuguese will be in charge of the club for the coming season.

Mourinho who gave a television interview to TV football show Punto Pelota after Real Madrid’s 4-2 win over Osasuna in his last match in charge of the Spanish club claimed he was set to rejoin the club he left in 2007 after he guided them to back to back Premier League titles.

The 50-year-old’s last season with Real Madrid has ended in massive disappointment and a personal low after he failed to secure any major silverware to his name besides the Supercopa de Espana (the equivalent of the English Community Shield).

Mourinho moved to Chelsea in June 2004 after leading Porto to the 2003-04 UEFA Champions League. Upon joining the Blues, the Setubal-born manager held his first press conference where he said, "Please don't call me arrogant, but I'm European champion and I think I'm a special one," and he has been referred to as the “Special One” ever since.

In his first season, he lived up to that tag after leading Chelsea to their first top-flight domestic title in 50 years, in a season that saw the club also achieve records including the most points ever achieved in the Premier League (95), and the fewest goals conceded (15). He helped the club defend the title in the 2005-06 season. During the 2006-07 campaign, Chelsea surrendered the title to Machester United but Mourinho still led the club to League Cup and FA Cup successes.

However, friction between the Portuguese and club owner Roman Abramovic saw Mourinho leave the club for Inter Milan where he won 5 title including two Serie A titles and the 2009-10 UEFA Champions League.

Mourinho made the switch to Spanish capital Madrid in 2010 and guided the team to the 2011-12 La Liga title but added just the Copa Del Rey and Spanish cup to his name before he left to join the Blues.

And That's thesteifmastertake!!
