In a piece of news that will excite all Chelsea fans, Jose Mourinho could be offered a new two-year contract according to the Daily Mail.
The Portuguese manager has had a successful season, leading Chelsea to the League Cup and Premier League victories. His contract runs out in 2017, and a two-year extension would mean that the Special One would stay in West London till 2019.
Mourinho has claimed time and again that he wants to stay at Chelsea for a long time. He also conceded that the game is becoming more demanding with each passing season and replicating Arsene Wenger’s or Sir Alex Ferguson’s dynasty is impossible. He said:
“It is impossible in modern football. I think Arsene Wenger will be the last. In modern football with everything that surrounds it, it’s very difficult for that to happen.”
He also said that his fate lies completely in the hands of the Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich. However, he said that he will stay fully committed to the West London outfit and would leave only when Roman will want him to. When asked about the possibility of a contract extension, Jose said:
“He has no pressure. He doesn’t need to give me a contract tomorrow; he doesn’t need to give me more money. He doesn’t need to be worried that some club is knocking on my door; he doesn’t have to be worried with anything. When he wants me, I am staying. When he doesn’t want me, I am going. So simple for him, so simple for me.”
For now Jose Mourinho is looking to stay at Chelsea. However, Mourinho’s record indicates that he has not stayed at the same club for more than four years, his longest stint being at Chelsea in his first spell. With Chelsea back to winning ways, fans would surely wish for their “Special One” to stay for many years to come and this time it looks as if their wishes will be fulfilled.
