Chelsea captain John Terry has warned their rivals that Jose Mourinho signing a new deal with the club is bad news for them.
Mourinho has confirmed that he will sign a new four-year deal and it is merely a matter of time before it is made official.
That in turn has led to Terry making his remarks, and the influential defender believes that Mourinho bringing stability and focus to the Premier League champions for another four years potentially will worry their rivals.
“It’s great news for the club but terrible news for everybody else because the other managers know that he finds ways to beat teams, he knows people inside out, on and off the pitch,” he told the London Evening Standard.
“Whether you’re a player or manager, he does his groundwork. He knows everything.”
Having won five major trophies during his first spell as Chelsea boss, Mourinho has already picked up another Premier League title and a Capital One Cup last season.
The 52-year-old will hope to extend that run of trophies this year, although he will certainly be prepared for a strong push from his rivals.
