With his second spell at Chelsea now over, Jose Mourinho has to decide where he would want to work now. The self proclaimed ‘Special One’ saw himself sacked after an abysmal third season with the North London club which saw the club earn 15 points after 16 weeks. The same squad which were champions the previous season have lost games against newly promoted Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Southampton. Although the club has managed a place in the last 16 of the Champions League, Mourinho was given his marching orders. Now the Portuguese mastermind has a decision to make to polish his tarnished reputation.
Paris Saint Germain
Even when Mourinho was relieved of his duties at Real Madrid, PSG were heavily linked with him. The PSG setup are content with Laurent Blanc’s domestic record but he provided little satisfaction elsewhere. The Champions League ambitions of the Parisians have not been fulfilled as they haven’t, even once, tasted the semi-finals of the competition. With Jose Mourinho, a man who has won the prestigious cup with two different clubs, PSG can have the European glory they dream of.
“I know the PSG project well, I know it well because when they start this project with the owner, the president and Leonardo, I was to be coach.”
Jose has managed to get immense success in the said competition as he is one of only four managers ever to win the competition with two clubs namely, FC Porto and Inter Milan. Mourinho’s Champions League resume does not end at just that. In the last 12 years, his teams have made the semi-finals 8 times. In fact, the only team to have won the competition outside England, Spain, Germany and Italy in the last 20 years was Mourinho’s Porto in 2004. PSG may keep Blanc if he gets to the semi-finals this season but replacing him Mourinho is a lucrative opportunity if they want Champions League success.
