New Delhi: The Cheslea captain John Terry has hailed Jose Manager as the best manager in the world, saying the Portuguese manager knows everything – on and off the pitch.
According to a report in The Guradian, Mourinho is close to signing a new four-year deal at Stamford Bridge. And Terry felt that the impending deal is a blow for their rivals as an all knowing Mourinho always finds ways to win.
“It’s great news [contract extension] for the club but terrible news for everybody else because the other managers know that he [Mourinho] finds ways to beat teams, he knows people inside out, on and off the pitch. Whether you’re a player or manager, he does his groundwork. He knows everything," the 34-year-old was quoted as saying.
After ending his first spell in North London in 2005, Mourinho returned to Chelsea in 2013 to end a whirlwind period of managerial musical chair game. The very next season, the former Real Madrid manager won the English Premier League title, further enhancing his legacy.
In this intervening period of eight years, Terry has seen seven managers come and go with limited success. Now, with stability in place with Mourinho at the hlem, Terry believed that Chelsea can dominate the league for a long time.
“For the whole place stability is key for us, which we have missed over the previous five or six years. It’s stable here, it’s calm," Terry said.
Regarded as one of the greatest and most successful managers in the world, Mourinho has won league titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain. He has also collected two UEFA Champions Trophy titles, each with Porto and Inter.
Chelsea will start the new season as defending champions, after claiming it for the first time in five years last season. Terry played every minute of that successful campaign and the club rewarded the centre-back by extending his contract for one year.
