Henry Winter says…
Jose Mourinho is the only man who can rescue Chelsea after sacking of manager Andre Villas-Boas
Only one man can rescue Chelsea. Only one manager can unite the squad and then refresh it. That man is Jose Mourinho.
Chelsea’s owner, Roman Abramovich, has been through so many managers that it is surely only a matter of time before he starts round again. He has to return to Mourinho.
In the wake of Andre Villas-Boas’ departure, fevered talk bubbles forth about possible successors. Pep Guardiola is mentioned, although why on earth would he leave Lionel Messi to work with Raul Meireles?
Why turn your back on one of the greatest teams in history, on lengthy Champions League adventures?
Rafa Benitez’s political strengths might be useful in such a political lair as the court of Abramovich, but man-management? How would Chelsea’s dressing-room respond to Benitez?
