There’s only one, Real Madrid’s Jose Mourinho

25 November 2012 by

Rafael Benitez was unveiled as Chelsea’s Interim Manager yesterday, a day after the quick but yet painful sacking of Roberto Di Matteo. Roman Abramovic doesn’t waste time in getting his man, or sacking his man in this case. I believe, as a Chelsea fan and a football fan, that Abramovich has had his eye on a prospective long-term manager since the Champions League win in Munich.

Fernando Torres was a goal-scoring machine at Liverpool. Scratch that. He was a goal-scoring monster. Frightening defences so much they’d have nightmares. Along with Xabi Alonso and Steven Gerrard, he carried Liverpool within touching distance of breaking their maiden and becoming Premier League winners in 2008/09 season, all under the management of Benitez. Now, as a Chelsea fan I wasn’t too pleased with the appointment of Benitez and nor were many Chelsea fans. This however isn’t a feeling of anger or hate but a feeling of discontent, not just with Rafa but with other appointments of managers/coaches. But if he gets the best of out the £50 million man then we will have nothing to complain about.
Not many Chelsea fans dare to question the appointment of RDM after his success in the FA Cup and Champions League. Not here. He was a legend as a player, lifting the FA Cup twice but as a manager he was out of his depth; he knew it. Sacked at mid-table side West Brom for not delivering and having only one year at League 1 side, MK Dons doesn’t quite make the mark as Chelsea boss. Andre Villas Boas, Luiz Felipe Scolari, Avram Grant, Carlo Ancelotti and Claudio Ranieri all relentlessly relieved of their duties for not delivering. Some may argue Di Matteo won Roman the Champions League for the first time. On the other hand, some may say the team managed themselves and won it themselves, with Didier Drogba being the determining factor.
Pep Guardiola is rumoured to have already agreed to take over at the end of the season but there’s only one man all Chelsea fans want to see at the Bridge: Jose Mourinho. “Chelsea and England is my home, I will return”, Mourinho said. Roman will have to suck his pride for Jose to return; doubtful. The managerial merry-go-round at Chelsea will carry on for years to come. Roman’s long-term solution may a two horse race. Pep or Jose.
