Chelsea are a club I’ve supported most of my life. Living in Scotland, it has been mostly watching them play on the television. To be fair I was quite the glory hunter as a kid, but come on I was young right ? So I thought that I’d go a club that I knew a lot about.
Chelsea are a club, who have enjoyed their greatest spell of success during the 2000’s. Having won their first Champions League in 2012, and the following year winning the Europa League. Having only winning the Champions League once and the Premier League only four times, I want to win more trophies, in José’s second reign as the manager of Chelsea. Chelsea first won the Premier league in the 1954/55 season, and there latest PL trophy was in 2010 when Carlo Ancelloti done the double in his first year as manager.
Who am I Playing as?
I will be playing as current manager, José Mourinho in his second reign as Chelsea boss.
José Mário do Santos Mourinho Félix, born 26 January 1963, is a Portuguese football manager and former football player. José is regarded by some to be the world's best manager and one of the greatest of all time. Mourinho started out as a player in the 2nd Portuguese division. He studied sports science in Technical University of Lisbon and attended coaching courses in Britain.
He had spells working as a youth team coach, a scout, and an assistant manager. In the early 1990s, he became an interpreter for Sir Bobby Robson at Sporting Clube de Portugal and Porto in Portugal, and Barcelona in Spain. He remained at the Catalonian club working with Robson's successor Louis van Gaal.
This is Mourinho’s second spell as Chelsea boss. In his first spell, he won the Premier League at his first go. Mourinho will now have to work with a different squad than last time out. But he still has the likes of Frank Lampard, John Terry and Petr Cech from his original squad.
