Long serving Chelsea captain John Terry won a Premier League title at Stamford Bridge under Manager Jose Mourinho in 2014-15. Although their title defending season was atrocious on numerous levels, resulting in Mourinho getting sacked in December, Terry has no doubt that The Special One can duplicate his success, which he’s accomplished in a few different countries with multiple teams, at Manchester United.

The aging defender backs his former boss to be a big hit at Old Trafford.

“It’s fantastic news for Man United,” John Terry told Sky Sports News. “I’m sure the Man United fans and players will be delighted with that.

“I’ve said many times before, he’s the best manager I’ve worked under and a real delight. It’s a shame the way he finished at Chelsea this year but I wish him well because he’s a great manager and a great man as well, he’ll be great for Manchester United I’m sure.”

“I’m sure he’ll settle in well with the likes of Ryan Giggs, hopefully he’ll stay and support him along with the team.”

“I’ve come up against Jose for previous teams before, he’ll get a great reception when he comes back to (Stamford) Bridge, for sure, but first and foremost we have to really look at ourselves this year and start fighting for the title again.”


These are very exciting times for the Premier League, as three financial powerhouses, a trio of giant clubs, are all beginning new eras with new managers this season- Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City, Antonio Conte at Chelsea, and of course Mourinho at the Theatre of Dreams. John Terry gave his take on that.

“I think it’s going to be interesting, not only for football in general but also for the Premier League.”
