‘I am back because we feel we are in the best moments of our careers, ready to work together again and in much better conditions this time to succeed in what this club wants, which is stability.
‘My career has been built and raised on success. I was able to achieve success and win trophies and leave different types of legacies at every club. I have to believe in that.’
Jose Mourinho at Chelsea’s press conference this afternoon.
West London was shut down today after Jose Mourinho walked on water from Madrid to offer salvation to Chelsea fans.
The #2ndcoming of the self-styled Special One, or the Happy One as he is now known, was unveiled at Stamford Bridge this afternoon allowing the Blues’ faithful to bask in the glory of the cheekiest and holiest wink in football.
Specially commissioned billboards by the Paddy Power arts and crafts department were erected around the stadium and across London with the tableaus including odds of 12/5 that the Portuguese miracle maker will reclaim the Premier League title for the club next season.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, the man with more money than God, will be hoping Jose can use his special powers on the squad to cure Fernando Torres, resurrect Florent Malouda and exorcise John Terry while Chelsea fans will just be hoping that Jose’s return brings them trophies.
Paddy Power is offering 50/1 about a holy trinity of silverware for the former Real Madrid manager in his first season back at his beloved Blues.
Commenting on Jose’s return a Paddy Power spokesman said:
‘When the Premier League lost its red devil at the end of last season sports writers and fans across the country looked to the heavens in desperation. We’ve all been rewarded with the #2ndcoming of Jose and our special work of art is a priceless celebration of the moment that even Da Vinci would be proud of.’
