Terry: Mourinho the best manager I’ve played under

John Terry has fuelled speculation Jose Mourinho might return to Chelsea this summer by describing the former-Stamford Bridge boss as the “best manager I’ve played under.”

Mourinho’s future at Real Madrid is uncertain, with reports linking the Portuguese manager with a return to Chelsea. The two-time Premier League winner left the Blues in 2007 for Inter Milan, before eventually joining Real Madrid.

Mourinho coached Terry at Chelsea between 2004 and 2007, and the Blues skipper has no doubts in his mind as to who has impressed him most at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to Sky Sports News Terry said: “He’s the best manager I’ve played under at Chelsea by a long, long way. He has a contract at Madrid so it’s disrespectful for me to speak about that.

“But he’s loved by the fans and the players as well. We have to show Rafa respect until the end of the season, there’s a job to do and we’re all focused on that. But Jose Mourinho as a person? Absolutely fantastic.”

Interim boss Rafa Benitez is expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer once his contract expires, and a string of candidates – including Mourinho – have been linked with the hot-seat.

But first the Blues must secure a top four finish and Champions League qualification for next season. 

Benitez’s side face a battle with Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton for a top four place, and take on Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday in a potentially pivotal match.
