Forget Petr Cech, re-signing Jose Mourinho could be the blockbuster move of the summer for the Blues. Can Mourinho win Chelsea another Premier League title next year?
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho could be around for a very long time as opposed to making another three-year stop-and-go.
According to the Metro, Mourinho is “on the verge” of signing an extension with Chelsea to stay at Stamford Bridge for what many hope will be a very long time. The move comes shortly after Mourinho made a triumphant return to Chelsea and led the Blues to one of the best seasons in club history and their first Premier League championship in five years.
In his first stint with Chelsea from 2004 to 2007, Mourinho won 124 out of 185 games with only 21 losses. The Blues also captured two Premier League Championships, an FA Cup championship, a Football League Cup and an FA Community Shield in those first three years. Since returning to the club he has won 71 out of 111 matches, giving him a career winning percentage of 65.88% – the highest in club history for any manager with more than 25 matches managed.
From 2002 through 2012 in stints with Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, Mourinho never finished lower than second on any League table and won six League Championships (two with Primeira Liga, two with Premier League, two with Serie A and one with La Liga). For his career – despite having never spent more than three seasons with a single club – Mourinho has a winning percentage of 67.03%.
