Petitions To Bring Back The Special One Jose Mourinho -


Terry says Mourinho was best coach

Clare Lovell Saturday, 29 September , 2007, 20:39

London: John Terry says he is taking legal action after newspapers ran stories that a row between the Chelsea captain and Jose Mourinho precipitated the Portuguese coach's shock exit from the club last week.
Writing in the Chelsea programme for Saturday's west London derby with Fulham, England captain Terry also said Mourinho was the best manager he had ever worked with.
"Most of the time it's easy to shrug off stories that are plainly made up but this week I got very angry about a couple of pieces suggesting an argument between me and Jose ... was somehow the cause or contributed to his leaving Chelsea," Terry wrote.
"This is ridiculous and untrue and with the help of my lawyer I'm taking action to put this right." Mourinho left Chelsea "by mutual consent" last week and was replaced by Israeli coach Avram Grant, who is close to owner Roman Abramovich.
Unhappy fans chanted Mourinho's name during Saturday's game, the first at home since his departure and stall holders were doing a brisk trade in "Bring back Jose Mourinho, We love the Special One" tee-shirts outside the ground.
"Jose Mourinho won six trophies at Chelsea, he simply was the most successful Chelsea manager ever and the best manager I have worked with," Terry wrote.
"His training preparation and tactics were outstanding...but more importantly he is a good man..."

Carvalho: Jose is simply the best

Ricardo Carvalho has expressed his shock at losing "the best coach in the world" after Jose Mourinho parted company with Chelsea.The Portuguese coach left Stamford Bridge by mutual consent after the club revealed there had been a "breakdown" in his relationship with the Chelsea hierarchy.
Carvalho arrived at the Blues from Porto where he won the Champions League under Mourinho - and he expressed his belief that the former manager was unsurpassed as a coach.
He told the Daily Mail: "We are extremely sad about this. We are sad and we are shocked.
"For me there is no doubt, Jose Mourinho is the best coach in the world and I cannot believe that we have lost him.
"I never thought he would leave Chelsea without finishing his work, without achieving everything he wanted to.
"This is the first time he has ever done this and it will be terrible for him. He loved Chelsea. It has come as an enormous surprise to all the players.
"In the past few weeks the coach was unhappy because of our bad results but we were all working together towards a solution."
Midfielder Claude Makelele echoed Carvalho's shock, although he admitted recent results had taken their toll on Mourinho.
Makelele told the Daily Star: "This news was like a bomb for me. I would never have believed we would see the exit of the coach just two months into the season.
"We have seen the tension on Mourinho with the results in the Premier League, but he was still confident.
"The new injuries had really hit the manager hard and you could see the anxiety grow as the results started to go wrong.
"I first heard the news after getting a text from a team-mate. I do not know the new manager that well but he is a football man and that is important for the future of Chelsea.
"He faces a big challenge because he will always be compared to Mourinho by the press and the fans."



This is all very surreal. Reports say that Jose Mourinho is one of the managers shortlisted by the Chelsea board. JM now has too many friends at Chelsea including Kenyon and heck, Roman Abramovich! It appears that Roman and Jose are friends again and that could only be a great news for Chelsea!
The list of contenders gets longer and longer and it makes it a misnomer to call it a short list. In no order the names that I have seen so far are, Jose Mourinho, Frank Rijkaard, Guus Hiddink, Michael Laudrup, Sven Goran Eriksson etc
Jose Mourinho: Read this story from Sun. Let me repeat, a story from Sun. JM wanted a Ferrari before he was sacked and he was seeking help from Chelsea to get that. 6 months after he was sacked, after our League Cup final defeat to Spurs, JM gets this 2 million pound Ferrari as a gift from Roman Abramovich. A gift of 2 million pounds? From a man who denied him a reinforcements in January for a defender? Surely things must have improved between them. And to top it all, the car comes with a plaque with ‘The Special One’ engraved on it. And that’s from Roman to Jose. Good times are back again?
It is believed that Roman now believes in giving full freedom to the manager of the club. That nicely ties in with what Jose Mourinho wants. Various papers have mentioned that JM has laid down three conditions for his appointment (i) full freedom in football matters including transfers (ii) sacking Frank Arnesen (iii) bringing back his back room staff with him.
If there is one thing no one can question, that is JM being his own man. He is never going to be a ‘yes man’. He may not take this job if his conditions are not met. In fact, bringing back his back room staff could mean a sack for Ten Cate too. Here is JM laying down his conditions to someone who gifted him a 2 million pound Ferrari. He is not going to get these things into his career. Same with Roman too. That’s what he proved when he sacked his friend. If the relationship between Jose and Roman is managed and oiled well, that could be just perfect for Chelsea. Every single fan of our rival clubs know this. This possible re-union of Roman and Jose should make them very uncomfortable. Sad news to those Man Utd fans who were hoping that JM would success SAF.
My choice is quite clear. If JM is available, I want him back. I just want him back. There is no short list or there is not even a list. There is just one name. Get him Roman. Sack all those guys who are simply playing politics to rob you of your money. Let JM manage football, while you can be simply counting the trophies. Chelsea has a massive ambition. There is only one route to achieve that ambition - winning trophies like no one’s business. The income from football, the fan base everything else will follow success. JM is the man who can promise you success and deliver the promise, and with this conditions fulfilled he can even guarantee success.
Time’s running out Roman, go get Jose!


The Sun
Jose drives a hard bargain
TWO DAYS after he was sacked by Chelsea, Jose Mourinho made a promise.
Standing by the banks of the Thames outside the Conrad Hotel at Chelsea Harbour, the Special One said the last of his farewells.
He had just given an interview to SunSport in which he said he was grateful for his time at Chelsea but that maybe he would come back to haunt them.
After an embrace and shake of the hand, Mourinho looked me in the eyes and said something which has remained with me.
“You know,” he said, “I will be back as manager of Chelsea some day.”

Roman's £2m gift

He smiled, turned around and walked towards the September sunset. Most people thought that it was the last they would see of Mourinho in west London.
After the rows with Roman Abramovich and appointment of the owner’s friend Avram Grant to replace him, it looked like there was no way back.
Football, however, is often much stranger than life. A week before he was sacked, Mourinho had asked Abramovich’s help in finding a rare Ferrari he wanted to buy.
The car — a 612 Scaglietti — is the only four-seater Ferrari make and Mourinho wanted a sports car he could drive his two children in.
A special edition was produced to celebrate the company’s 60th birthday with only 60 being made.
A few days after being sacked, the Portuguese coach contacted Chelsea director Eugene Tenenbaum to say that if the car was found he would still like to buy it.
Mourinho heard nothing for five months but was then contacted out of the blue by Tenenbaum, who told him a present from Roman would be delivered.
Three days after Grant lost the Carling Cup to Spurs, Mourinho took delivery of the £2million Ferrari complete with a personalised plaque engraved ‘The Special One’.

He phoned Abramovich to thank him and as the two men laughed together, the Russian billionaire jokingly asked Mourinho ‘When are you coming back?’.
As SunSport revealed on Saturday, the two men have been in regular contact since and the prospect of them being reunited has increased in recent days. From Abramovich’s point of view, the experiment of appointing a ‘yes man’ as head coach has proved a disaster. The Russian billionaire has fallen out of love with his club and has preferred to spend the majority of his time with his girlfriend, Daria Zhukova.
But he has decided the next boss will be allowed to do everything his way while the directors look after the business side.
Whether the promise of no interference is enough to persuade Mourinho to return is another matter.
Inter Milan have spent two months in talks with the former Porto boss and agreement ‘is very close’ according to the Portuguese camp last night.

The fact is though, Inter has never been Mourinho’s first choice. Ideally, he would have gone to Barcelona or Real Madrid and his talks with Inter only became serious 10 days ago when a job in Spain was ruled out.
He would only return to Chelsea on his terms and that would mean written guarantees he has the final say on everything in the football department — including the academy, where Frank Arnesen would have to be sacked from his role as director.
There are other details he would insist on but it is unlikely Abramovich will agree to the terms.
If that is the case, Frank Rijkaard is the only other realistic candidate and ironically, it is understood Arnesen has already contacted the Dutchman.
Rijkaard was offered the job 14 months ago when the club first plotted to axe Mourinho. He decided to stay at Barca but a second barren season at the Nou Camp saw him axed three weeks ago.

Abramovich has been impressed by Rijkaard’s football philosophy and the ex-Holland international needs to work.
He has been caught up in an income tax probe in Italy from his time at AC Milan and must pay back around £6million.
The £6m a year he can expect at Chelsea would be welcome — as would a £100m budget to rebuild and create a more exciting brand of football.
Given the options, Rijkaard is the easier and more obvious choice to lead Chelsea.
And Mourinho? Let’s just say he’s not a man to break a promise.

Jose ready for Blues comeback
JOSE MOURINHO is prepared to make an amazing return to Chelsea — but only on HIS terms.
The Blues sacked Avram Grant on Saturday without having an immediate replacement.
Frank Rijkaard remains the favourite and contact has already been made with the Dutchman, who could be interviewed in the next week.
But Mourinho would say ‘yes’ to taking back his old job — providing he was given three key guarantees from billionaire owner Roman Abramovich:
That he would have complete control of all football matters including transfers, first team and the academy.
Academy director Frank Arnesen — who Mourinho believes to be his enemy — is sacked.
That he could bring back all of his backroom staff with him.
As SunSport revealed on Saturday, Mourinho has been in regular contact with Abramovich and other Chelsea directors over the past few weeks.
But he has been negotiating a deal to take over at Inter Milan next season.
Inter president Massimo Moratti is pressing for an answer and expects to announce Mourinho as new coach this week.
Mourinho would risk losing the Italian job if he tried to delay a decision. The Blues are not interested in Sven Goran Eriksson and have decided Mark Hughes is not ready.
Club chiefs feel appointing an Italian is a backward step after Gianluca Vialli and Claudio Ranieri, while Guus Hiddink does not want the pressure.

'Special' return for Mourinho?
Chelsea fans on MY Sun are putting their Moscow misery behind them as they respond to reports linking Jose Mourinho with a possible return to Stamford Bridge.
The self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ joined
Chelsea four years ago, on the back of a long courtship by the Blues' board, after leading FC Porto to a Portuguese and Champions League Cup double.
He quickly established himself as a major Premiership force, as he took the club to two successive Premiership titles, as well as
100 per cent unbeaten home record at Stamford Bridge.
Despite his impressive trophy haul, Jose’s defensive style of football led to rumblings of discontent from the Chelsea hierarchy, who felt the team needed to be more pleasing on the eye, in order to be the global brand they envisaged.
Inconsistent form in the Premiership, and continual internal wranglings with the Chelsea board, culminated in Mourinho being sensationally sacked by the London club.
Second time around?
The news surrounding 'The Special One' and
Chelsea has caught the attention of MY Sun regular Adriano4chelsea.
He has some words of wisdom for Uncle Ambro:"I hope Roman realizes that rich people make huge mistakes.
"Give us Chelsea fans what we really want, and bring back the Special One to Stamford Bridge."
According to
Chelseablue1970, Jose is a natural born winner: "They gave him the job at Liera a second division team in Portugal and he got them promoted without money.
"They then gave him the job at FC Porto again without cash and he won two league titles and a uefa cup and Champions league."
Malaysian Blue
OptimusPrime thinks Jose would transform Chelsea: "Winning is about scoring at least one more goal than your opponent.
"The Special One is the master at this so let's bring him back.!"
Doubts remain over Mourinho's
Champions League record with Chelsea, especially since ex-boss Avram Grant bettered his two semi-final efforts, by taking the team to the Champions League final in Moscow.
"Jose has already won it, says
Chelsea78, and will no doubt do so again.
"Lets hope it's with Chelsea. Bring back the King over the water."
According to
commentator, Jose's return would re-ignite his managerial rivalry with Sir Alex Ferguson: "I bet you the old warrior is bored stiff with Wenger and Benitez.
"He misses his old slug partner and he has some scores to settle with him before he finally retires in three years time."

Why Jose is The Special One...

Mourinho is very special because of what he did at Chelsea.
I hear a lot of people saying they don’t want another foreign manager, and I agree with that to an extent. But we want the new man to be somebody who is going to make the most of the quality we’ve already got. There’s a lot of talent in our team that I don’t think is being exposed the way it should be and we need a manager who is going to make sure it is.

Everyone that is spoken about seems to be distancing themselves from the job so I think Mourinho is going to be first choice. The England job is not just about a manager’s ability to get the best out of their players - it’s about the whole package, including life outside of football. Unless you’re ready to be thrust into the public eye it’s best to stay away.
It’s a combination of all kinds of things. You have to be tactically aware and you have to be a great motivator. A combination of everything makes the perfect manager – Mourinho’s got that and that’s why he’s called 'The Special One'!



A SPECIAL RECORDIn his 19 Premier League games against Ferguson, Wenger and Benitez, Mourinho lost just two and won 10. Grant has faced these three men four times in the League and lost twice (Arsenal, Manchester United), with one victory (Arsenal).

Mourinho v Wenger Won 2, Drawn 4, Lost 0

Jose Mourinho really was the Special One



By Alan Smith
When those text messages landed late on Wednesday night, when Jose Mourinho told his senior players that he was leaving, the overriding sentiment, I suspect, among the recipients – apart from initial shock – was one of deep sadness.
Sadness that the boss had chosen to walk away from Chelsea. More specifically, sadness that his decision marked the end of an era, a time that reaped so much success, so many good times, thanks largely to the inspired leadership of the 'Special One'. I use that phrase intentionally, by the way. Because for all his foibles, for all his ill-judged remarks over the years, comments that went way beyond the boundaries of good taste, the Portuguese coach does indeed have something special as a manager. As a man as well.

A man apart: Jose Mourinho could bring out the best in his players
To realise that, you only have to be in his company for a couple of minutes. It is an oft misused attribute attached to people, but there is definitely an aura about this particular character, something innately appealing to most who come into contact with him and something, more importantly, that engenders fierce loyalty among his charges.
Think of John Terry and Frank Lampard, two lads already established at Stamford Bridge when Mourinho arrived. It didn't take long for them to realise that something different was afoot.
Likewise, it didn't take long for the new manager to appreciate what he had in this pair. A good portion of the team's spine was already in place. Consequently, they became the gaffer's lieutenants on the pitch, giving every last ounce of effort to deliver the game plan designed to win silverware.

When that success came, what's more, no one looked happier than the two Englishmen. Celebrating that first title win at Bolton, the bond looked unbreakable between all three. It goes without saying, then, that Terry and Lampard will have been upset by the news.
And so will several others who made huge progress under Mourinho's tutelage. Didier Drogba, for one, immediately springs to mind. A handful, certainly, at Marseilles but still something of a rough diamond, he gradually evolved into the most feared centre-forward in Europe. You could say something similar about Michael Essien. Another costly buy, admittedly, but another player now on the way to fulfilling his huge potential. The list goes on. Joe Cole, for instance, turned from an unpredictable show pony into a player of substance under Mourinho.
The dressing-room, therefore, will be in a state of considerable flux just now, with no one quite sure how things will pan out under Avram Grant. There must also be a little resentment simmering under the surface towards Chelsea's former director of football. Inevitably, whispers will go round that the Israeli coach stabbed his predecessor in the back to get a chance in the hot seat. Grant will have to deal with that. It might not be easy.

What is certain is that Mourinho will prove a hard act to follow. When last was a manager forced out after maintaining an unbeaten home record stretching to 64 games? Helping him to achieve such amazing results, never mind what you say about the entertainment value, was an attitude to discipline and organisation bordering on fanatical.
On the training ground, sessions were mapped out well in advance, so that everyone was clear what lay ahead. Off the pitch, to leave no one in doubt of the standards expected, Mourinho issued every member of staff with a special rule book. Those falling short of the requirements could be ostracised in a flash.
Which brings us around to Andrei Shevchenko and Michael Ballack. Whenever a manager departs from a football club, there will always be players feeling fairly pleased. For every Lampard or Terry, a disaffected player will hope for better things under the new boss. Shevchenko, then, will doubtless be praying for a change in fortune, without Mourinho's unappreciative glare boring into his back.

For the rest, however, the mood will be less positive. Their leader has gone. What on earth happens now? Yet the default reaction quickly kicks in. As always in these circumstances, every player starts to look after himself.

Next Chelsea manager......Jose Mourinho



It is looking more and more likely that Jose is going to be our next manager. He and Abramovich have been building bridges recently (Roman just bought him a Porsche) and Jose has openly admitted he would like to manage Chelsea again.
When you look at the available candidates for the job, it becomes even more possible.
Rijkaard - He seems to fall out with everyone both as a player and manager, also he is somewhat unproven, sure a CL winner, but with a squad to die for.
Mancini - Again somewhat unproven, yes he did win the Scudetto with Inter Milan, but this seasons Serie A race was one of the weakest yet. AC Milan were very poor and Juventus aren't even a shadow of the team they one were.
Hiddink - He would be a fine manager for the Blues, but has turned down plenty of high profile jobs as he wants to stay with Russia and carry on doing what he's doing. Has just signed an extension until 2010.


Ericsson - Although I personally like Sven, I just can't see him being the right kind of personality for the Chelsea job. It seems the powers that be have realised we need a big personality to increase our public profile and Sven doesn't really fit the bill.
All this leads us back to Jose Mourinho. He really is the perfect man for the job. The players and fans love him, he loves the club and admitted recently he wants to come back
(March 07 "Asked if he would go back, he said: “Yes, why not. I would love to do that, of course, of course.").
If Chelsea want to be the main story of the off season and want the majority of the media spotlight then bringing back Jose would send the press into an absolute frenzy - Mourinho would love it.

I think it may well become a very special summer.
