As many had predicted, Jose Mourinho returned to London where he will take charge of the Roman Army, the team he coached before leaving to manage Inter Milan and Spanish giants, Real Madrid.
Not minding the circumstances that surrounded his departure six years ago, the self acclaimed ‘Happy one’ has been tipped to continue from where he stopped by winning trophies for the Blues.
Having it at the back of the mind that coaching is all about hiring and firing, Ladbrokes is tipping that the former handler of FC Porto will be sacked before the end of 2013/2014 season at a mouth watering odds of 9/2 (5.50) though this could be as a result of the manner in which Roman Abrahamovich fires his managers at the thick of the season.
Even at this, optimistic Chelsea believes that the 50 year-old tactician will be given lots of time to get things right. To justify this, the same firm is backing him at 1/8 (1.12) not to be shown the exit door before the end of the season.
