When you are living into a dream zone, it is obvious that people will start comparing you with other legendries who have been successful residing on the same job you are living in. We are talking about league side Chelsea and its ruling march towards the league title this season. They are still unbeaten in the English topflight and credit goes to only one person after of course team spirit, and that is its manager Jose Mourinho who looks straightforward to his dream of winning third league title for the Blues. Everyone remembers his last spell with the Stamford Bridge side and how he conquered two back to back league titles. He exactly wants to repeat his last feat with the same side, in fact, wants to do as well in the Championship league this time. Looking at their run in the English league, many have lots of expectations with them but unfortunately playing on European front and in English premier league are two completely different things and often English sides are known for their restricted dominance within English soil hence experts also doubt over Mourinho ability to do anything significant in European circuit.
Roberto Di Matteo, the former Blues manager who has won the UEFA title for Chelsea, is in the news these days for his comparison with the former Everton manager and if he can parallel him in CL. While many are busy discussing whether Portuguese can equal what Italian manager has done for the English side, Mourinho does not want to divert his concentration with these media made hype; however, he is still aspiring for the European title but not for making any comparison with anyone.
Those, who are not familiar with the Chelsea boss, he has done this two times in the past playing for Porto and Inter Milan, hence his ability is not a question but problem is whether he should distract his attention from English tourney to European title while English fans want their team to at least perform well in the domestic tourney and looking at the form of North Londoners this season, they want nothing less than a league title.
Replying over growing speculation about his performance to that of Di Matteo, Mourinho replied, “Don’t ask me to speak about him. The history is the history — he was on the Chelsea bench when Chelsea won the Champions League and he is a historic name in this club. I have nothing more to say.
“My name is in the history of this club. A football club is made of many, many names — not one or two names or one player or one manager. I did my history here and now I have the chance to make more history here and he was Chelsea manager and he did his history.”
