Mourinho targets Chelsea old boys club including Essien to bring trophies

Rumoured incoming Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will rely on most of the old players he worked with at the club previously like Michael Essien, Frank Lampard and John Terry as he will be seeking to win the Premier League title again.

Essien and the rest enjoyed a good time under Mourinho at Chelsea

Rumoured incoming Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will rely on most of the old players he worked with at the club previously like Michael Essien, Frank Lampard and John Terry as he will be seeking to win the Premier League title again.

The Portuguese manager, according to the English media has made keeping Essien, Lampard and Terry at Stamford Bridge his first priority on his return to the club.

According to The Sun, the current Real Madrid manager wants the three players to help him bring Premier League glory back to London.

Lampard, who has yet to be offered a new contract, has long been rumoured to be leaving Stamford Bridge, while Terry has suffered an indifferent season, falling down the pecking order under interim manager Rafael Benitez.

Essien who also suffered a torrid time before being rescued by Mourinho for a loan spell at Real Madrid will also play a key role.

The news is a blow for Blues’ fans who want to see Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao and Real Madrid’s Xabi Alonso make London home.

And there could be further pain for Chelsea with the Daily Mail suggesting Brazilian defender David Luiz is being targeted by Barcelona.

Barcelona have shown this season they lack any defensive cover and have made the £35 million rated Luiz their number one target in the summer.

    35 million for Luiz?? he can’t defend

  2. flash says:

    ghanaman thank you he is a waste in defence

  3. Lucan says:

    a decapitated David Luiz with one leg is still far better than that rusty old man called Essien-FACT.

  4. KiSy says:

    And a rusty old Essien is far better than a back passer and goalless Mikel Obi – FACT

  5. Nice says:

    @KiSy, A back passer and goalless Mikel Obi sent dwarf old Essien to loan and also won more trophies than dwarf old Essien. E.g Mikel won Africa Cup of Nations and also about to win European League while dwarf old Essien can only dream of it.

  6. Hahaha says:

    @ nice, you must be blind to think mikel has won more trophies than Essien. Essien has won League 1 titles twice plus player of the year in France and also won BBC player of the year in England. Essien has more personal achievements than that wack Mikel obi. Why even compare Essien to this looser? An ‘old’ Essien is 10 times better than Mikel Obi. FACT!

  7. Nice says:

    @Hahaha… Ur nothing but an Obroni(White man) worshiper. BBC radio station award is like Ghana radio station award and it’s an award not a trophy. Who value French league in Europe. Even Zambian Katungo who plays in China division 2 league won BBC radio station award last year. Mikel won Africa youth footballar of year award in 2005. Mikel won world youth footballer of the year award with Messi in 2005. Mikel won Norwegian League in 2005 before he moved to Chelsea in 2006. Mikel won Africa Cup of Nations, the highest trophy in Africa continent which Essien can only dream but will never win in his entire football career. 25 years old Mikel have achieved what dwarf old Essien who claim 31 years will never achieve in his football career.

    Now I know some people are clueless when it comes to football. Who on the earth would compare mikel obi aka CALL ME BACK to the legend Essien. Over 150 matches without a single shot on goal even Makelele had a better goal record. In England the holding midfield position is called the Essien or Makelele role. That shows how great Essien is. And those saying mikel has more laurels than Essien may be dreaming or are counting matches played as trophies. Is just like saying mikel has more trophies than kanu. Now u see how funny that sounds! Mikel is a kid maybe someday he might just attain half of the ‘Bisons’ achievements.

    @KiSy, stop barking like a mad a dog. Pls don’t bring true Africa Legend Kanu Nwankwo in this matter. Who is dwarf Essien for u to compare him to Mikel talk less of Africa Legend Kanu. Kanu won under 17 world and Olympic Gold for Nigeria. Mikel won Africa Cup of Nations and Under 20 world cup Silver for Nigeria. What have old dwarf Essien won for Ghana?

    Essien won gold at African u-17 in1999 and bronze at the u-17 world cup in new Zealand. At the u-20’s he won silver in Africa and silver again at world cup in Argentina. @ nice, now u see that even at youth level Essien beats mikel obi hands down. I don’t think u want us to go to senior level thus club and personal laurels because Essien would tear mikel into shreads. Look I know u are a big fan of mikel but please compare him to the Alex songs and sisoko’s and not the ‘Bison’. Thx.

  14. Nice says:

    @KiSy, hahahahaha…ur nothing but a shameless LIAR. Which year did Ghana won silver in Argentine? Hahahaha

  15. Samedge says:

    @kisy, wo y3 too much wate. I like ur spirit, Keep opening this guy’s eye like that . He doesn’t know anything about football!

  16. sam praise says:

    Don’t kill Mikel before his time, Essien is a legend, ask Mikel, Essien showed him how to do it, Essien is his senior brother in Chelsea, Mikel is as good as Benites while Essien is as good as Mourhino.

  17. Samedge says:

    @nice, Ghana won silver in 2001. Keep mute bcos u don’t know football!

  18. KiSy says:

    @samedge thx bro. I don’t even know why I debated with @ nice. The poor guy didn’t even know Essiens achievement at youth level. I guess he has been educated now that when it comes to achievements Essien is the superimo. Have to go we would meet on another caption.

  19. abdulahi says:

    @kisy u don’t know anything about football,essien also won silver with Ghana u-20 and finished second behind saviola in Argentina in 2001.go check your facts.but I am not suprise ,I live in Lagos educated Nigerians don’t think before they talk

  20. Ike says:
