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 »
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 »
‘’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 »

Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea has confirmed the signing of Basel’s winger Mohamed Salah who also was a target of Liverpool but with a price tag of around €16 million it was Chelsea who approached faster and secured the services of the 21 years old player.
A statement released by Chelsea club said: “Chelsea can confirm an agreement has been reached with FC Basel for the transfer of their 21-year-old attacking midfielder Mohamed Salah. The move is subject to the Egyptian international agreeing personal terms and completing a medical examination.”
Liverpool was one of the 1st Premier League clubs to take an interest in Salah as they had scouted the forward extensively and hoped to add him into their main squad but after only managing to make a bid of around €9 million, they lost the chance on signing Salah from Basel.
Salah is expected to be a replacement of Juan Mata who will be joining Manchester United on a €37 million deal. Although it has come to the attention that if Salah will be able to get more time on the pitch than Juan Mata, it all ultimately will be decided by Jose Mourinho who seemed to have had a dispute or disagreement with Mata which was one of the main reasons on why the Portuguese coach decided on having the midfielder spent more time on the sidelines then on the playing grounds despite having more than enough talent and quality.
Michael Essien’s agent is having talks with Ac.Milan as they are believed to be discussing a loan move for the defensive midfielder out of Chelsea and into the Italian side, Ac.Milan. Essien has only made 2 league appearances under Jose Mourinho and he wants to get more playing time.
