Together At Last- Ramires And Mou

Chelsea’s Brazilian midfielder, Ramires, has more reason than most Blues players to look forward to working with Jose Mourinho.

It seems Ramires is destined to play a pivotal role in The Special One’s set-up at Stamford Bridge.

He says that Mourinho took the time to contact him personally on his holiday, to let him know that he was on the manager’s transfer radar when he was at Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

Finally, Mourinho gets the chance to manage a player he has long coveted, without having to spend a penny on him.

"I'm hugely excited about getting down to work with Mourinho," Ramires told the Daily Mirror.

"He called me a few days ago out of the blue, which was a surprise to me.

"We talked a lot and he said a lot of nice things to me, including the fact that he tried to sign me from Benfica when he was at both Inter Milan and Real Madrid. Mourinho told me he was very happy to have me at Chelsea. I was very glad to hear that and told him he can count on me.

"He spoke of his excitement too and knowing how much he wanted to work with me, made me even more motivated for next year. I have a feeling that it will be a very good season for us."

It is interesting to consider that Mou is excited to work with dynamic yet workmanlike, box-to-box man Ramires, but is reportedly happy to sanction the sale of classy schemer Juan Mata.

What does it say about natural born winner Mourinho’s methods that he could prefer a player like Ramires over Mata?
