Comments Off on Paulo Ferreira reveals why he stayed for so long at Chelsea


Paulo Ferreira was a member of the Porto team that won the Champions League in 2004 and ultimately makes the move to Chelsea in 2004.

He was one of the first players that Jose Mourinho signed when he took charge of Chelsea.


The Portuguese defender quickly established himself as an important member of the team even if he was not always sure of starting a game. Jose Mourinho described him as the type of player that will never win a man-of-the-match award but rather as a consistent and hardworking player. It is this quality that will allow him to stay for more than 9 years at Stamford Bridge.

He left Chelsea in 2013 after the London Club decided that his contract will not be renewed. But by then, Paulo Ferreira did not have much playing time and when asked why he decided to stay even if he did not play he replied that he was happy to help. He said that he is someone that never gives up and that he remained at Chelsea so as to compete with the other defenders.Read More »

IkerCasillas is out of Real Madrid but he will remain active with Spain

Comments Off on IkerCasillas is out of Real Madrid but he will remain active with Spain


A few weeks ago IkerCasillas was released from Real Madrid as he joined the Portuguese side Porto after penning a 2 year long deal. This switch ended the relationship that Casillas had with Real Madrid which extended for over 24 years.

Even though IkerCasillas was offloaded away from his childhood club, the coach of the Spanish national side Vicente del Bosque has stepped up and supported IkerCasillas as the coach said that the experienced goal-keeper will continue to play a big role with his country in the international stage.

Spain is positioned in the 2nd spot of Group C and so far IkerCasillas has been the main man in between the sticks as he has played in almost all the group stages matches of the 2016 Euro’s.

Spain’s Vicente del Bosque said: “He had worse moments last season and played almost every match for Spain hasn’t caused any problems and has been a great servant to the national team”.

The main problem that IkerCasillas will face with trying to find a regular spot in the Spanish national side will be David de Gea as his Spanish counterpart continues playing at a high level and the younger shot-stopper took center stage in Spain’s qualification match against Luxembourg as IkerCasillas was dropped to the bench.Read More »


Jose Mourinho is certain that Chelsea don’t need as many points

Comments Off on Jose Mourinho is certain that Chelsea don’t need as many points


The start of this new Premier League season has not been a good one for Jose Mourinho and his team as they have sustained a draw and a defeat in their opening 3 matches of the season which is a hugely underwhelming way to kick-off a season, especially if your task is to defend the league title.

 

Before the 2014-15 Premier League had even kicked off, Jose Mourinho released a statement and the Portuguese coach said that Chelsea is not going to need as many points to win the Premier League title compared to the previous season.

 

Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho said: “To win the Premier League, we don’t need so many points as before. I think more defeats, more lost points for the top teams. Crystal Palace buyYohanCabaye, as an example. I could give you much more examples.Welcome this mentality, welcome this economic power, welcome this ambition. If the Premier League was difficult, the Premier League will now be more difficult and I think less points will win the title.”

Chelsea’s start of the season has been a disastrous one as they sustained a defeat when playing against Manchester City and could only muster a draw when locking horns with Swansea City but besides those disappointing results; Jose Mourinho has also seen one of his players receiving a red card even though only 3 matches have been played.Read More »


Paulo Ferreira: ‘’ Every fan of Chelsea wants Jose Mourinho to remain in charge’’

Comments Off on Paulo Ferreira: ‘’ Every fan of Chelsea wants Jose Mourinho to remain in charge’’


Jose Mourinho helped Chelsea secure their 5th Premier League title as the Portuguese coach pushed the team to what was a very impressive season for Chelsea where they managed to stay at the top of the top tier English league for the vast majority of the entire season.

Paulo Ferreira spent a little over 8 years of his playing career performing for Chelsea and has worked alongside Jose Mourinho both on and off of the pitch; Ferreira took the chance to express his thoughts and point of view concerning Mourinho who is considered to be a controversial person.

Former player of Chelsea, Paulo Ferreira said: “When you are at this club you want to win titles and for next season it will be the same. The motivation is to win trophies. He wants to succeed and do well, for how long I do not know. I think everyone at the club wants him to stay for a long, long time. I think everyone would like to see him in control for many years but in football, anything can happen.”

Jose Mourinho has a contract with Chelsea which extends until 2017 but taking into consideration just how impressively the English club has been performing since the return of the Portuguese coach, if more titles are won then it won’t be surprising to see Mourinho receive a contract extension from the head chiefs of the Premier League club.Read More »


Diego Costa in the Chelsea starting line-up once again this season looks highly unlikely

Comments Off on Diego Costa in the Chelsea starting line-up once again this season looks highly unlikely


The possibility of featuring Diego Costa in the Chelsea starting line-up once again this season looks highly unlikely after the striker hobbled off with yet another hamstring injury in the 2-1 win over Stoke City.

Costa was brought onto the pitch at half-time as the team searched for a winner. It was going to be a gamble by manager Jose Mourinho, who knew that the striker was not 100% just yet. Costa suffered a hamstring injury during the club’s recent 3-2 success over Hull City. Since this injury came only two weeks ago, it would have been touch and go to use the striker against Stoke City.

Just over 10 minutes after being brought onto the field to help the club get a winner, Costa suffered a hamstring injury and it appeared to be much worse than the one he had against Hull. This has raised suspicions that the 26-year-old may miss the rest of the campaign. Mourinho has confirmed that the striker has suffered a reappearance of the injury and that he may miss a few weeks of action. After being knocked out of all the cup competitions, Chelsea only have the league to focus between now and the end of the campaign. Costa is certainly ruled out of the upcoming matches against QPR and Manchester United.Read More »


Jose Mourinho statement came after Chelsea Eliminated

Comments Off on Jose Mourinho statement came after Chelsea Eliminated


‘’It wasn’t good enough’’ This was part of a statement that Jose Mourinho said after Chelsea was eliminated from the Champions League as they lost against PSG.

The Brazilian defender Thiago Silva scored a superb header in the last few minutes of the match which sealed the victory for PSG as the aggregate scoreboard was 3-3 but the French side won the game thanks to away goals.

Being eliminated from the Champions League gives Chelsea some positive and negative consequences. One of the better ones is that Jose Mourinho and his squad can solely focus on winning the Premier League as they were also knocked out of the FA Cup, they have no distractions or any other tournament besides the Premier League.

On the negative side, there are no English teams competing in any top European competition. If Chelsea was still competing in another competition besides the Premier League this could give the chance for other players to get into the starting XI lineup of Jose Mourinho.

Getting playing time is something that PetrCech desperately wants and the player hailing from Czech has already stated that he can’t continue going through another season in his current situation where all he does is sit on the sidelines.Read More »
