Done Deal – UCL Winner Signs Two Years Chelsea Deal, ANNOUNCEMENT Soon

Roman Abramovich

Champions League winning gaffer, José Mourinho has extended his contract two more years, securing his position at Chelsea through 2019. After securing the Premier League Title and the League Cup this season, this was expected news, but very good news still. Mourinho is one of the most tactically advanced managers in football, and has a history of success in the transfer market as well. And the best part is, he does not want to move on from Chelsea, stating earlier in the season that…

“Normally, I always had to think about the next step. Now the next step will be to renew with Chelsea.”

The Portuguese boss had attracted interest from some of England’s top clubs when he left Real Madrid in 2013, including Manchester City and Manchester United, but he decided to return to Stamford Bridge, and make amends with owner Roman Abramovich…

“One of the things that my career has given me in the past 10, 15 years was the possibility of choosing where I wanted to work. And I decided I wanted to go to the hardest place. For this reason I chose Chelsea. In England it is very difficult to win. And with Chelsea it was even more difficult. On the one hand because there was this prejudice that I had already won here, but also because there had been changes. Due to FFP [Financial Fair Play], and also as a result of the growth of the English League there are more candidates for the title. Today it is much harder than it was in 2005. We have City, we have Tottenham, Liverpool are back. In addition, from the emotional standpoint I knew the scenario I would find was complicated because I was going to have to bring my team to an end. Maybe I should have returned later.”

Mourinho is a brilliant manager, and we as Chelsea supporters should be very grateful that he is ours. During his time at Chelsea, he has won every trophy except the Champions League title, which he will be looking to capitalize on next season, becoming the first manager to win the competition with three different clubs.
