Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho hailed his side as "perfect" in their victory over Swansea City while he believes his players are playing to their limit as they look to win four trophies. Oscar and Diego Costa both found the net twice in the first half at the Liberty Stadium before Andre Schurrle added a fifth late on. The victory moves the Blues five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, though Mourinho's side have played a game more. And the Former Real Madrid boss believes his team must secure some silverware to make sure they go down in history, though he feels his squad could not have done anything better in south Wales. He told reporters: "We were perfect. Everything went in our direction. "The first half was very good. We were solid and recovered the ball in good positions.

Guardiola: Torres perfect for Atletico The coach lauded Diego Simeone's decision to bring the former club captain back to the Vicente Calderon and believes they pose a threat to Bayern's Champions League chances By Miles Chambers Jan 16, 2015 23:36:00 Former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola believes that Atletico Madrid have hit the jackpot by bringing Fernando Torres back to the Vicente Calderon. Torres left La Liga for Liverpool in 2007, one year before Guardiola famously took the reins at Camp Nou, and returned earlier this month on loan from AC Milan having flopped at San Siro and Chelsea before that. Football pundits and fans were split over whether Torres would burden another club with his lack of goals, but he stunned arch-rivals Real Madrid on Thursday by scoring a double to knock the holders out of the Copa Del Rey at the last-16 stage. Guardiola, who now coaches Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, believes that the Spain international is perfectly suited to life under Diego Simeone's wing in Madrid. ...

Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has voiced his opinion that Carlo Ancelotti is a better coach than Jose Mourinho. Casillas endured a difficult relationship with the current Chelsea manager during the latter's time at the Santiago Bernabeu between 2010 and 2013. However, the Spain international has insisted that he would happily shake Mourinho's hand if they were to run into each other in the future, irrespective of their differences in the past when working together. "Ancelotti is better than Mourinho," Casillas told COPE. "With Mourinho I had a love-hate relationship. "In his time here I did not speak to him when we were in the same locker room, nor do I think that I have to talk now when he is already managing another team and I’m with my team. "It would be a bit self-seeking and little cowardly on my part. I wish things go very well for him. In the time that he was at Real Madrid, he won titles and you have to give him thanks.

According to report Chelsea are in pole position to sign barcelona star. Chelsea are believed to be favourites to sign Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets despite also being linked with a move to league rivals Manchester United, Metro reports. The 26-year-old is still yet to extend his current deal with the La Liga giants causing a number of top clubs to keep a close eye on his negotiations with a chance that they can lure them to their respective side. Busquets is said to disagree with the vision of his manager Luis Enrique and seems to have lost his faith in the progression of the club despite sitting second in the league, a point behind leaders Real Madrid, who still have a game in hand. However, Jose Mourinho looks to be in pole position to lure him to London and with United cooling interest in the Spanish midfielder, the Blues could snap him up in January. If Mourinho can acquire his services in the upcoming window, John Obi Mikel, a player who plays a similar role to the Barca man could be forced to leave ...

Last week Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho said the Blues could not sign the Argentine because of the Financial Fair Play restraints. A £200m transfer fee plus a gross package nearing £500,000 a week is obviously a massive obstacle.

INTO THE CHRISTMAS BREAK... D I D. Y O U. K N O W? * Real Madrid are going into the Christmas break with one-point lead, & a game in hand, at the top of La Liga. * A Spanish record run of 22 successive wins. Two trophies already in the bag (European Super Cup and Club World Cup). * Barcelona have bagged 41 goals in 16 matches - at an average of almost three per game. * Ronaldo has scored only two fewer La Liga goals than Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar combined this season. * Real Madrid had a100% record in the Champions League group stage. * Cristiano Ronaldo have scored 25 league goals in 14 matches this season. * The key to Madrid's excellent start is Carlo Ancelotti managing to do something that neither of his Bernabeu predecessors Jose Mourinho or Manuel Pellegrini could do.

Jose Mourinho makes contact with Sergio Ramos Chelsea boss wants to sign Real Madrid defender Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has personally contacted Real Madrid star, Sergio Ramos, and has told him that there is a place for him at Stamford Bridge if contract talks go badly in Spain. The Spanish international is currently holding talks with officials at the Bernabeu regarding a new deal, but after rejecting their first offer due to a decrease in weekly-pay, it's reported that the defender may be keen on an exit from the club. Ramos was so frustrated about the contract offer, he went and spoke to Madrid's former Sporting Director, Arrigo Sacchi, but after holding talks with him, he was urged to stay at the club. According to reports, Sacchi told Ramos: “You have to stay where you are. Look at Shevchenko and Kaka, who left solid situations for greater salary, and it cut short their careers. You’re in the right place at Madrid, so you should stay.” Despite being urged to stay, Ramos has been told by M ...

[Video] Jose Mourinho Exclusive: Nothing fair about UEFA's FFP rules manager Jose Mourinho has attacked UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules, calling them a "contradiction" that protect European football's established giants. Mourinho has watched the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United spend hundreds of millions in recent summers, bringing in players like Gareth Bale, Luiz Suarez and Angel Di Maria. However Mourinho's Chelsea - whose overall financial strength is less - have had to spend more sensibly to meet FFP rules which require clubs to balance their books. Chelsea spent £93m in the summer on stars including Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa, but recouped nearly all of it through the sales of David Luiz, Romelu Lukaku and Demba Ba. Asked about the challenge of keeping up with their big-spending rivals, Mourinho told Eurosport-Yahoo: "I think Financial Fair Play is a contradiction because, when football decided to go for Financial Fair Play it was exactly to put teams in equal conditions to ...

The Chelsea keeper could be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge in January, with AC Milan thought to be keen on securing his services Petr Cech could be heading for Italy after Arsene Wenger insisted Arsenal are not interested in a January deal. Chelsea keeper Cech, 32, could be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge after losing his place to Thibaut Courtois. That has alerted the Gunners who were keen on signing the keeper before he went to Chelsea and Wenger remains a big admirer. But when recent links to Cech and stories were put to him, Wenger snapped: "no" when asked whether there was any truth in Arsenal signing the Czech keeper. That could leave the door open for AC Milan to make a move for Cech who could command a fee of around £7m with 18 months left on his contract. Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain and Monaco have all been linked with Cech who remains one of the best keepers in the world. But AC Milan are keen to get him in January and have made an enquiry with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho currently insis ...

Liverpool join Arsenal in the race to sign Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech Liverpool have entered the race to sign Chelsea's now second choice goalkeeper Petr Cech. The Blues' stopper has lost his starting place to Thibaut Courtois this season and is likely to move on in January in search of first team football. Arsenal have been heavily linked with the Czech Republic international but now Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool have joined the hunt for Cech's signature. Chelsea are prepared to part with the 32-year-old for £7m in January and other clubs across Europe, including AC Milan, Roma and even Real Madrid, are keeping tabs on him. Liverpool are looking at new options for a goalkeeper after Simon Mignolet's form in Liverpool's goal as come under scrutiny. This season, Liverpool have conceded 18 goals in the league, only five teams have let in more. Arsenal are favourites to land Cech but Blues boss Jose Mourinho has rejected rumours that an offer has been made. Mourinho said: “Petr Cech is our goalkeeper he ha ...
Real Madrid are prepared to let Sami Khedira leave the club and will not offer the German midfielder a new contract. According to Cadena SER, Madrid are upset with Khedira after he ignored the offer of an extension to his existing agreement, which expires in June 2015, when he was sidelined for five months with a cruciate ligament injury last year. Also, the 27-year-old, signed from Stuttgart in July 2010, has fallen down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu, having gone from undisputed starter under Jose Mourinho to fighting for a place in Carlo Ancelotti’s team behind Isco, James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric
1.What do you make of Jason Cundy's comment? 2.Do you see Cech moving to Arsenal? 3.Do you agree that Arsenal is not Premier League title rivals? Jose Mourinho wouldn't try to block Petr Cech from moving to Arsenal, according to ex-Chelsea defender Jason Cundy, because he doesn't see the Gunners as Premier League challengers. Cech, 32, was linked to the likes of Real Madrid, Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain in August after losing his number one spot to Thibaut Courtois, but Mourinho has continued to express his desire to keep the veteran at Stamford Bridge. "By signing for Arsenal, Cech could stay in London and he'd get regular playing time at a big club.” "Would Cech be a good signing for Arsenal?
Blues want Reus Chelsea now leading the pack for Borossia Dortmund winger Chelsea are now reportedly favourites to sign Borossia Dortmund winger, Marco Reus. The German World Cup winner has emerged as a prime target for several top club’s across Europe, after it was rumoured that Reus was unsettled at Dortmund, having stalled over a new contract with the Bundesliga club. However, despite closing in on any proposed deal, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will have to pay around £25 million to get his man, with Reus having a buy-out clause of that amount. Chelsea are also planning to throw in Andre Schurrle in the deal, to attempt to convince Dortmund to sell. Chelsea also face competition from Real Madrid, who are prepared to open up contract negotiations in order to bring him to the Spanish capital in time for next season. Elsewhere, Premier League interest in Reus remains strong, with Liverpool and Arsenal also keen to acquire his services.
Jose Mourinho is in pole position ahead of United, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Manchester City to land Marco Reus. His £20m release clause is due to activate in 2015, meaning the ultimate decision lies with Reus. [Express] ~Paul~
Today's Football Titbits Chelsea lead the race for Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus and could offer forward Andre Schurrle in exchange to beat Liverpool and Arsenal to the deal. Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria is eyeing a move away from Old Trafford, with former suitors Paris St-Germain uppermost in his thoughts. Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will switch Merseyside for the San Siro by joining Inter Milan in the January transfer window Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists midfielder Lukas Podolski is not for sale in January. Former Barcelona president Joan Laporta has denied claims that he is interested in bringing Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho back to the Nou Camp if he is re-elected. Gareth Bale's agent admitted Manchester United offered more money for the Welshman than Real Madrid, but the 25-year-old forward had his heart set on Spain.
UPDATES... Moyes: I'm more like Jose Mourinho than Pep Guardiola New Real Sociedad coach David Moyes has compared his management style to that of Jose Mourinho, while saying his new challenge is similar to that faced when he took over at Everton in 2002. Moyes has returned to football with the Liga side eight months after being fired by Manchester United less than a year into his contract at Old Trafford. The Scot takes over the Basque club with the team 15th in the Primera Division table, having won just two of their first 11 domestic games, while they were dumped out of the Europa League by FC Krasnodar in the qualifying stages. Moyes was asked at his unveiling on Thursday whether his style of management was closer to that of ex-Real Madrid boss Mourinho or Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola. He responded by saying that his "tough" approach made him more similar to the current Chelsea manager, and also took the opportunity to compare his new challenge to the one he faced when arriving at Goodison Park ...
Real Madrid would be willing to offload Gareth Bale to Manchester United if it means they can sign Eden Hazard to replace him. The Chelsea winger is high on Carlo Ancelotti's wishlist and, according to reports in Spain, he will try to tempt Louis Van Gaal into a record-breaking deal for Bale to fund the move. Los Blancos would be looking to receive more than they paid for Bale, and would probably ask for upwards of £90million. It is unlikely that Jose Mourinho would be willing to sell Hazard, so it would take an enormous offer to lure him away from Stamford Bridge. The Belgian spoke of his desire to play in Spain earlier in his career when Real Madrid first came knocking, but has recently said Chelsea are the only club he wants to play for. "I made the choice to join Chelsea because I knew I was going to play. This is my third year here. I can take pleasure by playing in this team." "I never said that if I left Chelsea it will be for Real Madrid. The only club that makes me dream is Chelsea."
What Makes Jose Mourinho Different From Others? “Mourinho is the world’s best manager.” – Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid and ex-Machester United player. One of the only five managers to win European Cup with two different clubs and the winner of the first FIFA Ballon d’oR Best Coach Award, Jose Mourinho, has been regarded as the best manager of his age. The Portuguese coach has so far lead Chelsea to the top of the table amazingly this season. After all, he’s not the ‘Special One’ for nothing. The 51-year-old is the youngest among his other leading counterparts in Premier League including Arsene Wenger, Louis Van Gaal and Manuel Pellegrini, but has experienced more successful stints with various clubs than any other manager. ‘Winners don’t do different things; they do things differently.’ Jose Mourinho, like every successful person, possesses some special qualities crucial for achieving success. But what makes him different from the others? Some will say he was born with the understa ...
Chelsea may sell Ramires Chelsea are willing to listen to offers for Ramires and could be prepared to sell him in January, Goal understands. Jose Mourinho has told Stamford Bridge chiefs that he would be prepared for the Brazilian to leave if a proven midfield replacement can be found. Spanish clubs, led by Real Madrid, are understood to be monitoring the availability of Ramires. The 27-year-old has struggled with injury and poor form this season, starting just three of the team's 16 matches in all competitions. He has been overlooked in favour of Premier League ever-presents Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas for the central midfield slots and has had to fight with the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar, Willian and Andre Schurrle for an attacking midfield position.
LIVERPOOL VS CHELSEA Chelsea hit Liverpool's Barclays Premier League title hopes at Anfield for a second straight season after a 2-1 win on Saturday. Brendan Rodgers' side came into the game looking to banish the memories of last term's corresponding fixture, Steven Gerrard's slip and the defeat which halted their trophy charge. But again they came out second best as Gary Cahill and Diego Costa overturned Emre Can's first Liverpool goal and Chelsea moved a daunting 15 points clear of the Merseysiders. Gerrard, Mario Balotelli and Jordan Henderson were recalled after being omitted from the starting line-up for the UEFA Champions League match with Real Madrid, but it was the only change from last week’s BPL defeat by Newcastle United, Can, who put the hosts ahead early on with an effort that deflected in off Cahill. The England man, against whom twice claims for handball in the Chelsea area were dismissed, atoned just five minutes later, bundling home despite Simon Mignolet's best efforts. Jose Mourinho's ...
Matches needed to reach 60 wins in all competitions with Real Madrid:. > Carlo Ancelotti: 78. > Jose Mourinho: 79
Chelsea added solidly rather than spectacularly to their squad after Jose Mourinho’s return to the club this summer. The focus was firmly on youth with the likes of Andre Schurrle and Marco van Ginkel arriving, although Mourinho also showed his liking for tried-and-tested talent with the signing of Samuel Eto’o. The Cameroonian being targeted was understandable given that none of Chelsea’s striking options appear to have convinced Mourinho. Romelu Lukaku has since left on loan, but there will still be doubts as to whether a 32-year-old Eto’o along with Fernando Torres and Demba Ba can capitalize fully on the creative play of the array of attacking midfielders behind them. While the fact that Chelsea failed to spend big on a striker was something of a surprise, the same can also be said about the non-arrival of a commanding midfield presence. Many pointed to the return of Michael Essien from his loan spell at Real Madrid as a reason for Mourinho’s lack of action in that area, but the fact that th ...
Angel Di Maria and Juan Mata set for reunion with Mourinho Manchester United have broken their record transfer fee twice in 2014, with vastly different levels of success. Juan Mata has rarely sparkled since his 37.1 million-pound move from Chelsea in January, but Angel Di Maria has been in impressive form, having been signed for 59.7 million pounds in the summer. Jose Mourinho, who visits Old Trafford with Chelsea this weekend, might have predicted how things would go. Mourinho, of course, has coached both, and his perception of the duo tallies closely with their Manchester United performances. He struggled to appreciate Mata in their half-season together at Chelsea, believing the Spaniard was incompatible with his favoured system, and was happy to sell him to United. Di Maria's relationship with Mourinho at Real Madrid was complex, but he always performed on the field. "I always had a good relationship with Mourinho, until the last year, which is when he began to fall out with most players," Di Maria sai ...
‘Now I understand why at the the age of 19, 20 or 21 he was the Arsenal captain. He is not the captain here because we have a different philosophy, but his personality and his profile is fantastic. His brain is connected to my brain during the matches. Chelsea manger Jose Mourinho has hailed Cesc Fabregas after his hot start to life at Stamford Bridge, and admits that the Spanish midfielder’s professionalism has exceeded even his own high expectations. Owing to his time in charge of Real Madrid, Mourinho was thought to have a tense relationship with the then-Barcelona star prior to this summer, but the Portuguese boss jumped at the chance to bring him back to England when it became clear that his services were no longer required at the Camp Nou. Arriving in June for £30 million, after Arsene Wenger opted against re-signing him for Arsenal, Fabregas has since been in fine form on the other side of London, recording a remarkable eight assists in 10 total appearances, moving Mourinho to praise not just ...

IS JOSÉ BUILDING THE GREAT ENTERTAINERS FOR ABRAMOVICH? ~ HAVING SCORED 16GOALS BUT CONCEDED 7. Jose Mourinho might not appreciate the comparison but right now his Chelsea team more closely resemble Newcastle United in their heady days under Kevin Keegan than anything he has assembled before. Chelsea so far are the great entertainers&have scored&conceded more goals after 5 matches than any previous Mourinho team. Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw vs Schalke in the Champions League means Chelsea have found the net 16 times but had their own defence breached on 7 occasions. For a man so focused on tactical tightness that total is anathema to Mourinho,even if his side remain unbeaten. Only in his 2011-12 season at Real Madrid has Mourinho started a season anywhere like this 1 at Stamford Bridge. Back then after 5games in all competitions Real had scored 15goals&conceded 6. Ominous signals for the Premier League chasing pack; Real won La Liga that season,scoring a frankly ridiculous 121 times for a plus 89goal di ...
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho comments on relationship with Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo ose Mourinho is fondly remembered by his former FC Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan players, but not so by the Real Madrid ones. That’s because during the end of his three-year spell as the Spanish club’s coach, he fell out with pretty much all the members of the team. Luka Modric, Diego Lopez and Michael Essien (on loan from Chelsea to Madrid for 2012-13) were reportedly just a handful of players who did not fall out with Mourinho. / gettyimages.com Fellow Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo backed Mourinho until towards the end of the 2012-13 campaign when the now Chelsea manager claimed that Madrid started the 2012-13 league season ‘in a sad state’, alluding to the 29-year-old’s revelation of being sad at the club back in September 2012. Mourinho won La Liga and the Copa Del Rey once each at Madrid and led the team to three successive Champions League semi-finals, but his time in the Spanish capital is replete w ...
Champions League - Real Madrid v Basel preview: Madrid seek to get back on track Team news, match facts and manager quotes for the Champions League game between Real Madrid and Basel at the Bernabeu. PREAMBLE Just as the Cup's first edition in 1956 was won by Real Madrid, so the Spanish aristocrats begin tournament number 60 as holders and warm favourites, even after their underwhelming start to the La Liga campaign. Even without AC Milan and Manchester United, 10-times winners between them, in this year's draw, there is predictability to what will eventuate. It is no coincidence that the four favourites this season - Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Chelsea - are also the last four heavyweight winners of the trophy. The last genuine surprise winners? Jose Mourinho's Porto in 2004, 18 of the last 19 winners having come from one of the continent's big four leagues - La Liga, Bundesliga, Premier League and Serie A. The Champions League is not big on fairytales. Here is another predictable predictio ...

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes that his side are at a financial disadvantage compared to Real Madrid, Barcelona and record-spenders Manchester United
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has stated that Manchester United’s boss, Louis Van Gaal, will recover from a disastrous start to the season. LVG has failed to win a single game, losing one and drawing two in the process. Despite several high-profile signings and a transfer window record of more than £150 million, fans and experts alike are unsure of what this season holds for United. Van Gaal came to the Premier League with plenty of promise. Having left the World Cup with Holland, holding a 3rd place medal and plenty of plaudits, Dutchman made a fantastic start. After winning a trophy and matches against Real Madrid and Liverpool, Van Gaal seemed to have things under control. However, a 2-1 loss to Swansea, a 1-1 draw with Sunderland and a goalless draw with Burnley suggest otherwise. With Star signings Di Maria and Falcao, United will now be raring to go and push on for a top 4 sp ...
Jose Mourinho has criticised Manchester United for spending over £150million on transfers this summer, while claiming Chelsea are now a "selling club". Mourinho raised his concerns that Financial Fair Play rules are stifling Chelsea and that the Blues were forced to sell big-name players to toe the UEFA line. "In the winter we sold Mata; in the summer one we sold David Luiz and Lukaku. So Chelsea in this moment is not a spender – Chelsea in this moment is making more money in transfers than the money we spend. "When UEFA decided for Financial Fair Play they were trying to do this to make every team have equal possibilities. "But the reality is that the big teams, the big clubs, the clubs with more years at the top with more fan base around the world, with more income, are the players that keep being the big spenders. "So Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern, Manchester [United] – all these huge teams, I think they have an advantage." [Source: YahooSport, Express]
Manchester United is in Danger of Losing its Identity Under Luis Van Gaal The biggining The biggest ever transfer window in English Premier League’s history has just gone by. Over £800M was spent among the clubs with Manchester United topping the chart along with Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal. The total expenditure according to the BBC is bigger than 19 countries combined GDP. In a league full of great sponsors, and the richest in the world it’s not too surprising but what is surprising is a certain Manchester United who won the League only the other season ago under the legendary manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, sacking his replacement immediately for not being able to make use of the squad that won the league and bringing in a supposedly more experience and astitute manager Luis Van Gaal to maintain the status and identity of the club as Sir Alex Ferguson did. Let’s remind ourselves that in the build up to the appointment of David Moyes “The Chosen One”, Jose Mourinho then at Real Madrid was thou ...

warns United over Di Maria 29 Aug | 10:56 © Sapa - AFP Louis Van Gaal with Angel Di Maria © Gallo Images Louis Van Gaal admits not even his record-breaking swoop for Angel Di Maria will be enough to revive Manchester United immediately as the Argentina star prepares for his debut at Burnley on Saturday. Van Gaal shattered the British transfer record with his £59.7 million signing of Di Maria from Real Madrid as he continued a major overhaul of United's underachieving squad which has exceeded £130 million since he took charge. Di Maria should get his first taste of the Premier League at some stage during United's trip to Turf Moor, but Van Gaal isn't expecting miracles from the midfielder despite his impressive pedigree. United are still waiting for their first victory under Van Gaal after losing to Swansea, drawing with Sunderland and then suffering an abject 4-0 defeat at League One minnows Milton Keynes Dons in midweek. Although David Moyes' ill-fated reign left plenty of problems, Van Gaal's poor s ...
Age no barrier to success for Everton new boy Samuel Eto'o, says Martinez He’s been labelled a has-been in some quarters, derided for losing the qualities which once made him the hottest strikin But in Roberto Martinez ’s eyes Samuel Eto’o’s 33-years are irrelevant – miles on the clock but the engine is in perfect working order. The Blues boss claims Eto’o is unconcerned about the furore over his advancing years last season, when Jose Mourinho made an issue of it, and insists that age is just a number. Speaking after officially unveiling the Former Real Madrid, Barcelona and Inter Milan forward yesterday, Martinez, himself a particularly sprightly 41-year-old, said: “It’s not a case of age..a number..it’s how you feel and if you look after yourselves properly. “I’ve seen many 26-year-olds that are old and have old bodies because of their lifestyle.

Jose Mourinho three years with Real Madrid: 3 Trophies. Carlo Ancelotti one year with Real Madrid: 3 Trophies.
Central defender Raphael Varane has been unhappy with his playing time and wages at Real Madrid, and a move to Chelsea could be in his future. Reuters As manager Jose Mourinho said earlier this week, possessing two of the best goalkeepers in the world in Petr Cech and Thibaut Courtois is a good problem for Chelsea to have heading into the new Premier League term. The Great One meant it more from a competition standpoint, with the Czech and 10-year Stamford Bridge netminder and budding Belgian 22-year-old pushing each other to greater heights. But now Mourinho’s phrasing has taken on new meaning, with the Blues leveraging the position battle into a possible deal for a young, top-flight defender. Mourinho has been enamored with Real Madrid central defender Raphael Varane well before he brought the French international to the Bernabeu in 2011, and now he could facilitate a move to London with Los Blancos keen on acquiring the 32-year-old Cech for their coming La Liga and Champions League runs, The Express ...

In that match I had all my strikers injured. No Diego Milito, no Samuel Eto’o, I was really in trouble and Mario was the only one. “Mario got a yellow card in the 42nd minute, so when I got to the dressing room at half-time I spend about 14 minutes of the 15 available speaking only to Mario. “I said to him: ‘Mario, I cannot change you, I have no strikers on the bench, so don’t touch anybody and play only with the ball. If we lose the ball no reaction. If someone provokes you, no reaction, if the referee makes a mistake, no reaction.' “The 46th minute – red card!”

Filipe Luis has signed for Chelsea in a deal worth £20million, according to reports.

The Brazilian full-back was instrumental in Atletico’s march to La Liga glory last season, and shone in their astonishing run to the Champions League final, which they lost in extra-time to Real Madrid. Luis will become Chelsea’s fourth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa and Croatian youngster Mario Pasalic.

Tottenham green-light Adebayor sale to finance £32m move for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku Reports claim that recently appointed boss Mauricio Pochettino is in favour of wiping Adebayor's extortionate £170,000 per-week wages from the books and remodelling his side around the youthful Belgian. However, Spurs are unlikely to recoup much of the £25m spent on Adebayor and so heavy investment from Chairman Daniel Levy will be needed to meet Chelsea's £32m valuation of the player.

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno / Getty Images 'Saint Iker,' as he is known at Real Madrid, was dropped for much of the 2012-13 season by Jose Mourinho, but remains a club legend, having come through the youth system. Casillas has often had the misfortune of having an inadequate defense in front of him as Real have focused on assembling a fearsome attack, only to neglect the backline. But this simply meant he was able to showcase his skills to an even greater extent, bailing out his defense time and time again, putting his body on the line and making spectacular saves when the opposition looked odds-on to score.

Jose Mourinho will reject any opening offer from Real Madrid for Ramires but the European Champions are determined to sign the Brazilian. Chelsea have interest in various Real Madrid players and they may be offered as makeweights in a bid to tempt Mourinho who remains a firm fan of the 27-year-old midfielder. Carlo Ancelotti has been keen to take Ramires to the Bernabeu since arriving at Madrid and made enquiries back in November. The Real boss has held talks with president Florentino Perez and they will press ahead with bids for the Chelsea man and Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. Mourinho is bringing in Tiago from Atletico Madrid and remains in talks over Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona. He has lost Frank Lampard and may listen to bids for John Obi Mikel but wants Ramires to stay. Mourinho likes Raphael Varane, Sami Khedira and Isco at Madrid but any deal will take some hard bargaining. Meanwhile, Juventus are the latest club to express an interest in Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku. The centre forward, who ma ...
Check out these funny impressions of Thierry Henry, Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger:
Manchester United are heading to the United States this summer for Tour 2014, presented by Aon, and will renew rivalries with some of world's top clubs. In addition to Real Madrid, LA Galaxy and AS Roma, the Reds will face Italian outfit Inter Milan at FedEx Field in Washington DC on 29 July, in the International Champions Cup. The last time the two giants met was in 2009, when Sir Alex Ferguson's men took on Jose Mourinho's side in the last 16 of the Champions League. After a tense 0-0 draw in the first leg, goals from Nemanja Vidic and Cristiano Ronaldo were enough to secure the Reds a place in the quarter-finals. Relive the action in the video. Vidic, of course, is set to feature in the tour match next month in the colours of Inter, having recently called time on his illustrious Old Trafford career. As new manager Louis Van Gaal takes his place in the United dug-out for only the third time. Enjoy! Hope United perform like Champions throughout the season. The new era of Players and Manager are now to bu ...
Conte is like Mourinho - Zanetti The Argentine says the former Italy international deserves most of the credit for the Bianconeri's three successive Serie A title wins Javier Zanetti has likened Juventus coach Antonio Conte to former Inter boss Jose Mourinho. Mourinho enjoyed a highly successful two-year spell in charge of the Nerazzurri – which culminated with a treble win in the summer of 2010. The Portuguese coach eventually left the club to take charge of Spanish side Real Madrid, with Conte taking over Juventus one year later. Conte has since led a club coming off the back of consecutive seventh-placed finishes to three successive Serie A trophies and Zanetti says the former Italy international reminds him of Mourinho. "They [Juventus] did a great thing, having a brilliant consistency," he said of the Old Lady's dominance during an interview with Tuttosport. "Like [Diego] Simeone, Antonio was also a coach on the field and was able to convey his personality and his determination to the team. “Jose ...

Black Stars WILL CRASH OUT OF GROUP STAGE OF 2014 World Cup, JOSE MOURINHO PREDICTS Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has predicted that the Black Stars will crush out of the 2014 World Cup at the group stage. The Portugese trainer, who is a Yahoo Global Football Ambassador, believes no team will finish Group G without a point but expects Germany to top the pool with Portugal qualifying to the second round in second position. The former Inter Milan and Real Madrid trainer also expressed fear for his native Portugal in their Brazil 2014 Group G match against the USA on June 21st. Ghana has been drawn in Group G of the Brazil 2014 World Cup alongside Germany, USA and Portugal.
was discussing coaches with my friend , he termed Jurgen Klopp as "poor man's Jose Mourinho" ( mostly for the sort of counter attacks Dortmund are capable of) , what a great coach he has been in the last five years, not spent much, won two league titles, been losing his best players every season to create new ones, almost won the Champions League last season, backs young talent, beat the star studded Bayern and Real Madrid without his defensive line last season, avoided temptation to join the so called bigger ( read richer) clubs. An absolute genius, best coach in the last five years, maybe alongside Gaurdiola, especially in terms of developing talent and return on capital.
Nasri and Tevez in World Cup Ignored XI. The best 11 players to miss out in their country's 23-man squads for Brazil -Champions League winners for their club and all-time top goalscorers for their country. Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas out too. 1) Diego Lopez Iker Casillas may have lifted the UCL trophy for Real Madrid but his error for the opening goal offered a hint as to why both Jose Mourinho and now Carlo Ancelotti have preferred the services of Diego Lopez in La Liga. Honourable mention: Willy Caballero 2) Alvaro Arbeloa Alvaro Arbeloa has been a long-time member of the Spain set-up, with over 50 caps to his name. He was a squad member as Vicente Del Bosque's side lifted the 2010 World Cup but came to the fore at Euro 2012 where he started all six games in Spain's triumphant campaign. However, an unfortunate injury in March opened the door for Daniel Carvajal at club level. Honourable mention: Gregory van der Wiel 3) Ashley Cole Regarded by many seasoned observers as the best left-back in world fo ...
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has decided that Thibaut Courtois will be his number one goalkeeper from the start of next season - and has subsequently put Petr Cech on the transfer list. The Portuguese coach is keen to avoid a repeat scenario of what happened at his former club Real Madrid, where long-serving ‘keeper Iker Casillas was dropped to the bench in favour of Diego Lopez, causing a huge amount of unrest at the Bernabeu. This is according to well-connected Spanish newspaper Marca, who claim Atletico Madrid have reluctantly accepted Mourinho’s decision to bring back Courtois after he wooed the young Belgium international with two magic words: stater status. Courtois, despite arriving at Stamford Bridge in 2011, has not made a single appearance for his parent club, spending the last three years on loan with Atletico instead. The 22-year-old was not interested in returning to Chelsea unless he was guaranteed first-team football next season with the West London outfit. And after another wonderful ...
The Italian coach has enjoyed a superb debut campaign in Spain, but will now be expected to build an era-defining team after Real Madrid claimed La Decima on Saturday COMMENT By Ben Hayward in Lisbon A season to remember. Carlo Ancelotti ends his debut campaign at Real Madrid with two trophies, the Copa Del Rey and the Champions League, vindicating the decision by president Florentino Perez to part company with Jose Mourinho last summer. But for the Italian coach, this must be just the start. Mourinho claimed the Copa in his first campaign in charge, but fell short in La Liga and in the Champions League. The Portuguese asked to be judged on his second season - and that brought a spectacular return in the Primera Division with 100 points to dethrone Barcelona after the Catalans had claimed three titles in a row in the previous years under Pep Guardiola. On the back of that success, Mourinho signed a new long-term contract in the summer of 2012. It was supposed to be the start of something special, an era-d ...

I want to leave! Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois eyes up permanent move to Atletico Madrid. CHELSEA goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has admitted that he wants to stay at Atletico Madrid next season according to club chief executive Gil Marin. The news of Courtois' intentions to stay in Madrid will set alarm bells ringing for Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho. He will be reluctant to let Courtois leave Stamford Bridge as first choice keeper Petr Cech currently has a shoulder injury which will rule him out the start Chelsea's Premier League campaign. The news of Courtois' desire to stay at Aletico comes less than 24 hours after their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid. But Marin revealed that the Chelsea star made his intentions known to them after them before the defeat to their local rivals. He said: “Courtois wants to stay and he’s told the directors that. "But it all depends on him and Chelsea have an injured goalkeeper.” - [via Daily Star]... As for me let the ungreatful little boy stay wt them if he w ...
PLAY LIKE Real MadriD In soccer it appears that whatgoes around comes around. The domination of the well-drilled tiki taka possession teams has been so expertly picked apart in recent times that counterattacking football has made a major comeback. Possession, we now know, isn’t everything.Jose Mourinho gave a master class with Inter Milan back in 2010, taking apart Louis Van Gaal’s Bayern Munich side, but nowhere has the countering technique been better executed than at Real Madrid in the past few months.First there was the resoundingwin over Barcelona in the final of the Copa Del Rey, with a galloping Balegoal that has seen him nicknamed the Road Runner. Then there was the 4-0 demolition of Bayern, the heaviest defeat their coach, Pep Guardiola, has ever endured in European football. It seems Real’s quest for a 10th European Cup trophy, La Decima, is within their grasp.would make them even more vulnerable. With the pace of Ronaldo, Di Maria andBale, Real possess a counterattacking mechanism that tr ...
5. Fábio Coentrão: Benfica to Real Madrid, £27m, 2011 While Los Blancos are usually well represented in any list of expensive players, the new European Champions have only Fabio Coentrao to their name here, and it is certainly not one of their better big name signings. Read more: Real Madrid 4-1 Atletico MadridLos Blancos leave it late to secure La Decima Signed by Jose Mourinho back in 2011, the then 23-year-old was considered to be one of the most promising defenders in the game. The Portuguese has not hit the heights expected of him however, and has long been linked with a move away, with Manchester United expressing an on-off interest in taking him to Old Trafford. 4. Marquinhos: Roma to PSG, £27m, 2013 PSG’s obsession with collecting the best Brazilian defenders did not begin with the former Roma man, but their intensions were clearly outlined by the huge outlay for such a young, inexperienced operator, who had just completed his first season in Europe.

That moment when football fans around the globe irrespective of their clubs they love but notably Real Madrid fans start branding Jose Mourinho a flop in football management because Carlo Ancelloti succeeded in delivering the Tenth Holy Grail (La Decima) for the Los Merengues where Jose Mourinho failed to in his three year quest at Santiago Bernabeu. But what many have failed to notice or must have remained ignorant of is Jose Mourinho also did a little to help Real Madrid lift the La Decima last night... 1. He stopped Pep Guardiola's Barcelona dominance. 2. He took them to three consecutive semi-finals when they always fail in the early knockout stages prior to Mourinho's appointment. 3. He made Cristiano Ronaldo better 4. He instilled that winning mentality they lacked for some few years back. **You can attest to the fact that this Dortmund and Bayern Munich team they eliminated on their route to the finals were not that strong to the ones Mourinho met during his reign...**
Every player that left Real Madrid last season (Özil, Higuan, Callejon, Albiolwent) went on to win a trophy. Except Jose Mourinho.
This is not to take anything away from the marvelous work Ancelotti has done at Madrid, but any fair and square Madrid or neutral fan can realize that Mourinho deserves some credit what Real Madrid have achieved so far. When Mourinho took over, Madrid were a team with bunch of individuals with no team chemistry between them whatsoever. They had suffered two humiliating years domestically against Barcelona and in Europe, they hadn't even gotten past Round-1 in the Champions League for six straight seasons. They weren't a a team, nowhere close to it. Mourinho took over, and if not suddenly, but slowly things changed. The 5-0 loss to Barcelona aside, Madrid kept on growing and harder to beat game after game, and finally beat Barcelona in the Copa Del Rey final, something that was unimaginable in the eyes of many Barca's enormous quality. When his reign was over, his record was five wins, six draws, and six losses to Barcelona, although losing only once in his eight matches to Barcelona. He guided the team to ...

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo says Saturday's Champions League final against neighbours Atletico Madrid is a game all 'Madridistas' have been dreaming about. Real coach Carlo Ancelotti will attempt to succeed where the likes of Jose Mourinho, Fabio Capello and Manuel Pellegrini failed on Saturday by finally ending Real Madrid's wait for a 10th European Cup in Lisbon. Ancelotti is Real's 11th coach since they last conquered Europe back in 2002 under Vicente Del Bosque and the club's quest for 'La Decima' (the 10th) has increasingly turned into an obsession for the big-spending Spanish giants. Ancelotti has already done better than some of the biggest names in the game by getting Real back into the final - the first time they have graced the showpiece since Zinedine Zidane's famous volley saw them beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 at Hampden 12 years ago. However, the Italian knows that is only part of the battle, with all Real fans now desperate for the club to get their hands on the trophy again. Ronald ...
Schurrle's CL final regret. Chelsea's Andre Schurrle admits he will be full of regret when he watches Saturday's Champions League final in Lisbon. Spanish rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid will lock horns in a battle to be crowned European kings, with the game live on Sky Sports 1HD. Diego Simeone's La Liga champions booked their place in the final after overcoming Jose Mourinho's Chelsea 3-1 over two legs, with all the goals coming in the Stamford Bridge leg after a goalless draw in Spain. Chelsea's campaign unravelled after the defeat to Atletico, as Norwich held on for a 0-0 draw in the following game to put a huge dent in the Blues' Premier League title bid. Schurrle, who scored in the final-day win at Cardiff City to ensure they at least finished on a high note, has promised Chelsea will 'come back stronger next season'. But he admits he will be wondering what could have been when he watches the European showpiece on Saturday. Schurrle told the Daily Star: "We're disappointed because we didn't w ...

SPORTS UPDATE WITH EMMAH ATAI: Ray Parlour believes Arsenal will be better equipped to mount a Premier League title challenge next season if they finish this campaign by winning the FA Cup. The former England midfielder insists the players will benefit psychologically from ending the club’s nine-year wait for a trophy. Nobody in the squad has lifted silverware in England before. Parlour won three League titles, four FA Cups, and one League Cup during his 12-year career at Arsenal and knows how success breeds success. Thorgan Hazard is assessing his options for next season amid claims Liverpool, Everton and Schalke are interested in the Chelsea youngster. Hazard said in March that he did not plan to return to his homeland next season and could seek to prove himself at Chelsea, whom he joined from Lens in 2012, and Jose Mourinho was present to check on the 21-year-old's progress in a 2-1 defeat to Anderlecht in the Pro League playoffs. Cristiano Ronaldo said the pressure Real Madrid feel to win "La Decim ...
WHO WILL NEUTRALIZE GUTTMAN CURSE? The curse of Bela Guttman continues as Benfica lost their eight consecutive Euro final in 51 years. The defeat via penalties to Sevilla in the Europa League final tonite means further misery for the Portuguese club who have been haunted by the curse placed upon them by their former manager in 1962. Guttman, a Jewish Hungarian footballer and coach who died at the age of 82 in 1981, was hugely successful during his three-year period at Benfica, winning two European Cups, two Portguese league titles and one Portuguese cup. But after leading his team to victory in the 1962 European Cup final over a Real Madrid, Guttman felt his success deserved a pay rise. The board of directors at Benfica didn't take too kindly to his request and turned it down before sacking him. An angry Guttman - billed as 'the original Jose Mourinho' for his self-confidence and personality - responded by uttering the words which have haunted Benfica ever since: 'Not in a hundred years from now will Benf ...
Real Madrid regains first position in FIFA Ranking "Real Madrid has to recover its place in Europe". That was the phrase uttered by Florentino Pérez in May 2009 when he decided to run again for the presidency of the club. Five years later and that mission has been accomplished. Real is in a Champions final and tops again the UEFA ranking, something that has not happened since 2005. When Florentino took over again for the 2009-2010 season, the club was in 13th position and remained there when Jose Mourinho became the coach a year later, while not even seeded in the Champions League draw. The coefficients that determine the rankings are based on results over the last five seasons in both the Champions and Europa Leagues. After previously losing six consecutive seasons at the quarterfinal stage, the club had lost a lot of ground in Europe until the arrival of Mou. The new coach brought three semi-final appearances in a row and now with the club in the final under Carlo Ancelotti, Real have reached first pos ...

Portuguese daily newspaper O Jogo understandsthat Chelsea are readying summer bid for Real Madrid starlet Raphael Varane. The Blues have already agreed to sign centre-back Kurt Zouma from Saint Etienne, but they plan to add another high-profile stopper to their ranks in the summer transferwindow. According to O Jogo, Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane is the number one name on their wish list. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho rates the player highly having coached him at Santiago Bernabeu and he recently revealed he believed the Frenchman was the best defender in world football.
Jose Mourinho has asked Chelsea to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid
Jose Mourinho is considering a move for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane (Marca).
Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, has cast his beady eye on Real Madrid centre- back Raphael Varane, and has asked the club's directors to do whatever to sign the youngster
Real Madrid's Karim Benzema is a £40 million target for Jose Mourinho, according to a report from Paul Doyle of The Guardian.
Marca have reported that Raphael Varane could join Chelsea this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to sign a new centre-back. It was under Jose Mourinho that French defender Raphael Varane first blossomed at Real Madrid, making his debut in 2011 following a move from French side Lens. 15 games in that campaign saw him instated to a more regular first team place in the following season, making 33 appearances under the guidance of Mourinho. However, this season has seen the French international make just 20 appearances so far, with the majority of those coming against weaker teams as new boss Carlo Ancelotti seems settled with Pepe and Sergio Ramos. And, it is now being reported that Varane could reunite with his former boss and close friend, Mourinho at Chelsea this summer.
Guardiola signed a contract with Bayern last year. Carlo Ancelotti signed a contract with Real Madrid last year. Jose Mourinho signed a contract with Chelsea last year. Jurgen Klopp is too loyal to Dortmund. Guus Hiddink will be the new Netherlands coach. It seems now that appointing David Moyes WAS the worst mistake United have ever made. Not only have we fell out of the Champions League, we really only have one option of choice in manager, and that is Louis Van Gaal. (Managers we could have signed last year we can't now, look above) Ryan Giggs shouldn't take over because if you look at all the top managers, they all had smaller jobs to get experience, EVEN SIR ALEX. Appointing Giggs would be wrong when we can appoint Van Gaal and give Giggs that learning curve. -Wario.

VOLUME ONE FOOTBALL LESSON I already told a few friends that the second leg of the UEFA Champions League Semi Final Match would prove to be the greatest acid test for Jose Mourinho and his team this current season. I was very worried when 'The Special One' was happy to get a barren draw during the first leg at the Vicente Calderon. On Tuesday Night when Real Madrid outclassed and took Bayern Munich to the cleaners at the Allianz Arena, I knew Diego Simeone would also be tempted to take his chances. And boy, he did a clean and excellent job! It was almost a no-contest immediately after the penalty conceded by Samuel Eto'o. Atletico's 40-year wait to get to the final has finally ended. What are the lessons inherent in that match and how can we apply them to life? DON'T SEND OUT YOUR BEST PLAYERS ON LOAN Or at least be frugal about it. Chelsea currently has about 27 players on loan to other clubs- among whom are Romelu Lukaku who has scored 26 Premier League goals till date between spells at West Brom and Ev ...
Real Madrid would have never achieved this feet should they have held on unto Jose Mourinho as the head coach. Real Madrid have made a lot managerial indiscretion and the best was allowing Jose Mourinho leaving them and qualifying their best decision they brought on one of the best coaches ever, Carlo Ancelloti who has won the heart of the players in the dressing room contrary to his predecessor. Carlo Ancelloti has brought out the quality of players like Pepe, Modric, Benzema, Di Maria etc which Mourinho couldn't do so in his 3 year instinct at the club. Mourinho is a world class coach but there are kings and there are kings.
Interesting stats on Jose Mourinho - he has managed four teams in Champions League semi-finals, appearing on eight occasions - that's 16 matches, 1 with Porto, 3 with Chelsea, 1 with Inter Milan and 3 with Real Madrid - with a total of 13 goals - entertaining stuff! Talk about Boreinho! Chelsea have been in the semi-finals of the Champions League six times - three times under Mourinho (2 goals in total, losing all three ties) and three times under other managers (eight goals in total, winning two out of three ties).
In Jose Mourinho I trust. Jose is Far Better than Arsene Wenger. See how he made Liverpool to wait till end of the premiership. Watchout for Chelsea next season with more trophies. You know we won Europe in the last 3 years Europa and Uefa so why are you guys making fun of us? Jose made 95% of those signings/ players at Real Madrid. People should leave us alone.
Jose Mourinho Is Light Years Ahead of The Rest A man so obsessed with preparation, attention to details and methodology is Mourinho - the best there is! Maybe, the best there has ever been. It's astonishing how he always finds a way to overcome almost anything that's in his way, ignoring yesterday's voodoo match. He's the best motivator there has ever been, and there is no one like him - the best tactician of all time! Mourinho is a grand slam coach: Portugal Circuit - Won England Circuit - Won Italy Circuit - Won Spain Circuit - Won Champions League - Won X2 No coach comes close. None! Only Mourinho has the highest league points win in: Spain - 100 (Real Madrid with 121 goals) England 95 (Chelsea) Portugal 86 (Porto) The Treble in Inter Milan remains a record till date. Oh! Jose Mourinho - the Giant Slayer. The Dream Destroyer. The Special, Only and Happy One! It is about time haters should get used to loving Mourinho. But, if you still want to hate him, then it's your choice. Hate Mourinho, hate him aga ...
I Motswalo Victor Mampeule declare that I am no longer a supporter of Kaizer Chiefs Football Club. I give my heart to Real Madrid and any team that Jose Mourinho manage. I don't want to be associated with criminals and loosers. Amen!
Atletico Madrid will fall into Chelsea's defensive trap in tomorrow night's Champions League semi- final, according to European football expert Guillem Balague. The writer and pundit has seemingly changed his mind from what he said earlier this week - with him then predicting a tight Atletico win. But with Jose Mourinho's men ensuring a clean sheet last week in Spain after denying their opponents any significant opportunities, including hot shot Diego Costa who was constantly denied space, Balague thinks the La Liga leaders could fall victim to the Blues strategy as they try and press for a win. The Portuguese employed the same tactic in the 2-0 win over Liverpool at the weekend that has blown the title race wide open - with Chelsea's rearguard action resulting in Brendan Rodgers accusing the Blues of "parking two buses". And Balague fears the same will happen tomorrow night and set-up a Chelsea-Real Madrid final that sees Mourinho taking on the side he left just last year. "Atletico will feel obliged to ...
The Dream Of La Decima is on for Real Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti has succeeded where Jose Mourinho failed as Real Madrid coach. Tonight, Bayern Munich were battered and destroyed before home fans at the Allianz Arena. Pep Guardiola has failed to re-enact the brilliance of Jupp Heynkes as his dream of a treble this season was shattered by a resilient Real Madrid. The focus now shifts to Stamford Bridge where another Madrid team will attempt to break traffic against a Chelsea team that will fill the bridge with luxurious buses hoping to qualify for the finals via penalties. There can't be a better final than the Madrid derby between Atletico and Real. I love this game and will like to see the game flow.
For those slating Chelsea for playing defensive football against AM. That is the beauty of Jose Mourinho. He is not shackled by ideology. If he has the right players, he will play open and attacking football (setting goal, points, and goal differential records at Real Madrid in 2011-2012 most recently) but if he does not have the personnel to do so, he will not sacrifice results for spectacle.
Manchester United Should Watch It: The Red Devils should be careful with the way they are dealing with their current situation. I hope their situation will not be like that of Real Madrid in the mid-2000(just like now for Man Utd). Real Madrid sacked Vincente del Bosque in 2003 because of their impatience after 5years in charge, (well Ferguson was not sacked, but had to go after long spell in charge). Since then, Madrid have been looking for a better manager and through that they have employed EIGHT Managers before arriving at Jose Mourinho who spent three years at the Bernabeu. Now Carlo Ancellotti may not even spent up to that. My verdict: I think the Red Devils goofed by initially appointed Moyes. After they made such mistakes which they claimed they didn't, they should stick with him and allow him to get our Fergie era. Man United faithful should not celebrate Moyes' exit much because they may enter the same transition of long search of better replacement for Ferguson, and that could take a decade, ju ...
