Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

"I believe success depends on objectives being reached for by a group, who are able identify, establish and fight for those goals," Mourinho told Jornal de Noticias. "It's becoming more and more difficult for a group to work as one. Values have been lost - education and professionalism are becoming worse and worse.

"It is a problem in current society and football in particular - working as groups, not individually."

I mean you can see he's onto something. We don't have to be fans of everything he does but if we look at this from his point of view, he couldn't have done things much better, considering his goals, which is to have the team united as a group, fighting for the common objectives. Today's players are certainly less committed to their clubs than before -- without commenting on whether or not that's a bad thing -- but that's not Mourinho's concern at all as once he's the manager, it's his job to make players care also about the team and the club, not just about themselves. And Mourinho will do everything he can to make that happen.

People comment on him not staying in his club for a long time -- understandable, but heck, that's because he holds high standards of the commitment that he wants his players to have for the club's success. Once that's gone, so is he (Chelsea, Real Madrid...*). What about the other managers then? I'd go as far as say that most of them don't get the player commitment levels that are anywhere near Mourinho's (Ask yourself this, when's the last time Mourinho had to sell a player he didn't want to? Yup, there is no such instance. Wenger hint hint ;)). Thus, they don't get his results, regardless of how long they stay at their clubs.

Exceptions exist but they are very few and very far in between.

(*) - did he try to fix it? Yes, I think in many ways actually, but it didn't work and he exhausted the good-will before he succeeded. Oh well, such is life. Should he compromise and settle for a little less than absolute player commitment in exchange for longetivity at the club? I think yes, but I, like most fans, am in no position to know how that would affect his club's performance and results. If that's the better thing to do, I'd expect Mourinho to figure it out eventually. If not, then maybe he's decided the downside (reduced results) is not worth the upside (being liked by others). I'd personally disagree there but I can understand his reasoning if it were such.

To a point, Robben. He forced his way out.

MOURINHO APPOINTED

Posted on: Mon 03 Jun 2013

Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Jose Mourinho as First Team Manager.

Mourinho has signed a four-year contract and will return to the club where he won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups between 2004 and 2007.

Ron Gourlay, Chelsea FC Chief Executive, said: 'I am delighted to welcome Jose back to Chelsea. His continued success, drive and ambition made him the outstanding candidate.

'It is our aim to keep the club moving forward to achieve greater success in the future and Jose is our number one choice as we believe he is the right manager to do just that.

'He was and remains a hugely popular figure at the club and everyone here looks forward to working with him again.'

Since leaving Chelsea in 2007, the 50-year-old Portuguese has worked in Italy with Inter and Spain with Real Madrid, lifting three league championships, two domestic cups and the Champions League.

Originally appointed at Stamford Bridge in 2004, immediately after winning Europe's top competition with Porto, he quickly achieved success securing his first trophy for the club as early as February 2005, when we beat Liverpool 3-2 after extra-time in Cardiff to win the Carling Cup. We went on to win the league that season with a record 95 points and a record low of just 15 goals conceded in 38 games.

The club celebrated consecutive championships in our centenary 2005/06 season, secured with a 3-0 win over Manchester United in late April, and the next campaign we were able to add the Carling Cup with victory over Arsenal in Cardiff, and the FA Cup when United were beaten again in the first senior game at the new Wembley.

Mourinho departed by mutual consent in September 2007, going on to develop his already impressive CV by winning the Serie A twice in two years and the Champions League with Inter, before joining Real Madrid in 2010, where he lifted both La Liga and the Copa Del Rey, ending his stay in Spain yesteday.

He brings three coaching staff with him in Rui Faria, Silvino Louro and Jose Morais. Each carries the title of Assistant First Team Coach and will work alongside current first team staff Steve Holland, Christophe Lollichon and Chris Jones.

The new manager will be officially presented in a press conference at Stamford Bridge on Monday 10 June, further details of which will follow in due course.

- You can see the first full interview with Jose Mourinho exclusively on Chelsea TV this evening at 6.30pm.

Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

"Jose Mourinho was let down by a self-centred and "immature" dressing-room, according to Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa.

Arbeloa, one of the few Real Madrid players who still supports the Chelsea-bound Portuguese coach, said: "Mourinho gave everything. He always put the club first and sometimes his image was affected by that. I am not sure everyone else, players included, can say the same."

Speaking after Mourinho's last game in charge of Real – a 4-2 win over Osasuna on Saturday – Arbeloa said: "A lot of us [players] were worried we might look bad in the media. We worried about having a good public image and we always spoke for our own benefit."

Makes sense really.

Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

it's not hard at all ' date=' United & City do not pass through changes ? Will be much easy for Mou to readapt to Chelsea .[/quote']

Based entirely on your opinion and with no previous experience for you to base it on.

It is your opinion, it could well be correct but dont make out as if you KNOW City and United dont handle change and that Mourinho will adapt perfectly.

You dont.

David Moyes , he's first year at a big team

Manuel Pellegrini saked after one year at a big team

Mourinho , made history everywhere he worked .

It is not just my opinion , it's pure logic .

Pellegrini was sacked because Perez is a nutcase. He got Real their highest ever points total at the time with a squad he didn't have any input in.
