Chelsea: “The Special Team”
Chelsea was founded on 10 March 1905. But nevertheless, despite the widely overcome 100 years, It has not been until these last decades that the team “Blue” has managed to raise his level. His first sporting success, He came in 1995 by winning the Premier. It was from that moment that Chelsea began to win various titles such as: of the FA Cup, a League Cup or a European Super Cup. With the arrival of Russian magnate Roman Abramovich in 2003, that later, in 2004, would sign José Mourinho as coach, Chelsea was going to make a big leap in quality. With all of you, “The Special Team”.
In 2004 and after winning the Champions League with Porto, José Mourinho arrived at the first project of the Russian tycoon. Is, It was José's first stage at the head of the Blues, since I would return to the club years later. In the first season of Mou, the club underwent a change in every way, this was because the coach, arrived from Porto, completely reshaped the team's style of play and at the same time the mentality of the squad, since Mourinho is a coach who has a strong personality and great charisma, he is a coach who does not get wrinkled when talking to his players about their defects and virtues.
And for this reason it is also well known by the press. When Mou arrived at Chelsea he found a team with self-esteem on the ground, with a team that couldn't win titles. The Portuguese from the first moment prevailed in the changing room, and made things clear from the first talk. As for the team's game, Mourinho changed it radically, since the team at that time did not play anything, the technician imposed as a game scheme a 4-3-3 with a Lampard a little more advanced to participate more in attack. His style of play was the counterattack. In this first stage he managed to win 3 Premier Legue, 3 League Cup y 3 Comunity Shield. After being 2 times named best coach in the world, The 20 September 2007 José Mourinho inexplicably left the club to go to Inter Milan.
After Mourinho's departure in 2007, many coaches passed with mixed luck. The one who succeeded Mou was Avram Grant who despite having been coach of the Israel national team, He was not the right man to fill the position on the bench. Nonetheless, achieved second place in the Premier and reached the final of the Champions League, but he fell both in the final against a great Manchester United and in the Curling Cup against Tottenham Hotspur. Grant failed to win any title with Chelsea FC.
In July 2008 Luiz Felipe Scolari arrived. The Brazilian was signed in order to get Chelsea to get results, since this is the main factor that characterizes the Brazilian coach. Despite his good preseason, did not achieve the objectives proposed by the club. The season did not end and in February 2009 the chosen one was Guus Hiddink. The Dutchman came to the rescue of a Chelsea that looked like it was going to fail that season. Despite the bad moment of the team, managed to raise the morale of the players and the team reached the third position, reached the semifinals of the Champions League and also achieved an FA Cup by beating Everton.
But nevertheless, despite making up the season, in June 2009 came to the club Carlo Ancelotti. The board signed him in order to win the first Champions League, since the Italian coach had just won it with AC Milan. Ancelotti's Chelsea showed a game not very beautiful but effective, since Carlo had very few losses with the London club. Carlo Ancelotti achieved with the Blues a Community Shield, a Premier League and an FA cup. In 2011 left Chelsea to go to PSG.
After the departure of Carlo Ancelotti, several coaches have passed through the Blues bench, as Andre Villas-Boas, that he was dismissed for failing to meet the expectations proposed by the club. His place was taken by the assistant coach, Roberto Di Matteo with whom they won the first Champions League in their centenary history. Then Rafa Benítez arrived who achieved a UEFA Champions League achieving a historical fact and that is that for a week, Chelsea was the only team in history that was the reigning champion of both the Champions League and the UEFA Champions League.. Nonetheless, the Spanish coach failed to penetrate Chelsea fans and left at the end of the season.
A) Yes, the 3 June 2013 return to Chelsea ” The Special One” José Mourinho converted in his own words into “The Happy One” after returning to London, signing for four seasons with the Blues. This will be his second stage in front of Chelsea. In the first season of this second stage, the Portuguese coach is not doing anything wrong, since he is still alive in all competitions. We will see if at the end of the season the London board is satisfied with the team's achievements. For the moment at least, the show is guaranteed.
