Stamford Bridge side to welcome back ‘Special One’ early next week.
Real Madrid are reportedly set to relieve Jose Mourinho of his Bernabeu post in a board meeting due to take place on Monday according to Spanish source Marca and this will in turn lead to the 50 year old Portuguese boss making his much anticipated return to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will then look to swiftly appoint Mourinho as the West London club’s permanent successor to interim boss Rafa Benitez, a move the Russian billionaire is keen to tie up as soon as possible so that the returning manager can join the club on their North American tour, which sees the club take on Man City in two fixtures later on this month.
Mourinho has experienced the worst season of his managerial career this term, failing to clinch any silverware after Real Madrid were beaten by city rivals Atletico in the Copa Del Rey final, during with the under-fire boss was sent to the stands.
Jose Mourinho has experienced a rather up and down time of it during his three seasons in charge of Real Madrid, leading the Spanish giants to three successive Champions League semi-finals and landing a La Liga title last term, but in-fighting within the club, a breakdown in his relationship with a number of senior players as well as a growing discontent among the supporters will see the former FC Porto, Inter Milan and Chelsea boss leave sooner rather than later.
Chelsea fans will welcome the return of the ‘Special One’ who led the club to two Premier League titles in his three completed seasons in charge.
