Mata Keen To Work With Mou

Juan Mata is the latest Chelsea star to crow about the possible return to Stamford Bridge of Jose Mourinho.

The Special One is expected to be announced as Chelsea boss sooner rather than later, after Real Madrid confirmed that his tumultuous reign at the Bernabeu will come to a close at the end of the season.

Mata says he and his Chelsea team-mates remain in the dark as to who their new manager will be, but he is excited that Mourinho is the hot favourite for the job.

"Jose is one of the best," Mata from Chelsea’s tour in America.

"He's won everything in every country he was - in Portugal, in Italy, in Chelsea in London and in Spain.

"I think we don't know really what's going to happen, but if he comes, he's welcome, because he's one of the best. Chelsea always want to be a top squad, a top side, and I think if he comes, we're all going to be happy to have him."

Keeping Mata happy must surely be one of Chelsea’s top priorities.

So much of their best football flows through Mata, an artful, continental ‘trequartista’ in the truest sense of the position.

And so the Blues could do worse than select a manager that Spanish international schemer Mata is more than content to work with.
