Are you keen to “rediscover the joy” that is Mourinho?
The rumour mill is a-buzz with tales that Jose Mourinho may return to Chelsea. Some sources make it sound like a sure thing, claiming that Ancelotti will leave for Roma at the end of the season, opening the door for the Special One at Stamford Bridge. William Hill have slashed the odds, favouring him to make a “sensational return.” Others are certain it won’t happen. Most of the people I’ve spoken to are, like myself, skeptical.
Despite speculation he could replace Roberto Mancini at Man City or even take over at United when Sir Alex finally retires, it seems he’s keen to lead the blues once again. In the end of January he was quoted as saying,
“I’ve decided to return to England. I have nothing prepared about my future – I just want to be happy in my work. I have no preferences about Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea. I just want to rediscover the joy.”
Which I love, simply because I admire his confidence. He didn’t say “I’d like to return to England” but “I’ve decided to return to England” almost as though it’s unfathomable he wouldn’t go where he wanted. In the end of February he remarked, “I still love Chelsea. I was the happiest man when there.”
To be honest, I don’t know how I feel. I doubt it’s a sure thing Mourinho will return, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he did. I also don’t know if I want him to come back. I’m not opposed to the idea; at the same time, I like Ancelotti and I’m not keen to see him sacked. Yes, Chelsea hasn’t performed as expected this season and yes, the gaffer bears some responsibility but let’s not forget King Carlo is the man who lead the boys to make history last year.
What are your thoughts? Will the Special One come back to the Bridge? Better yet, should he?
