Dutchman worked under ‘Mou’ in the capital between 2004-07. 

Former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben has backed Jose Mourinho to be a huge success in his second spell in charge of the west London club, reports the Daily Mirror.

The self-styled ‘Special One’ is expected to be confirmed as the replacement for ‘interim’ Blues boss Rafa Benitez at some point next week, having overseen his final match in charge of current club Real Madrid on Saturday, a 4-2 home win over Osasuna in La Liga.

That game marks the end of the Portuguese’s controversial three-year spell at the Santiago Bernabeu, during which time Mourinho finally brought an end to arch rivals FC Barcelona’s dominance of the league by claiming the title in record-breaking style last season.

However, the 50-year-old’s third campaign in the Spanish capital has not proved quite so successful, with los Blancos ending the season without a trophy having relinquished their Liga crown back to the Catalans, while also losing in the final of the Copa del Rey to city-rivals Atletico de Madrid.

But Robben, who worked with ‘Mou’ at both Stamford Bridge and in Madrid, has no doubts that his former manager will succeed at Chelsea, saying: “It is a big move for Chelsea with Jose coming back – but I know it is one the fans will welcome.

“He had very successful years at Chelsea – and he can have them again.

“The thing about Jose is that he will win at any cost – he doesn’t care how, he just wants to win.

“I’ve not always been supportive of the style of football he plays, but he is a winner who has achieved great success. I am sure that with some big signings from the owner that Jose and Chelsea can rule England again.”
