It sounds like Jose Mourinho wants another run as the manager of Chelsea, declaring his love for the club this week and declaring that he was the happiest he has ever been when managing at Stamford Bridge.

While Carlo Ancelotti's career as Chelsea manager still appears relatively safe, that could change if Chelsea are trophyless at the end of the season after Roman Abramovich's mass investment in January that saw Fernando Torres and David Luiz join the club.

There can be little doubt that Mourinho's run at Chelsea was cut short. This was the man who won the Premiership for the first time in 50 years for Chelsea in his first year - and then did it all all over again in his second season. But how likely is a return for the Special One?

It has been well documented that Mourinho was unhappy with the way that the club was run, most famously appearing to be extremely unhappy with having Roman Abramovich's friend and then club record signing Andriy Shevchenko forced upon him.

But this is the man who utilized Abramovich's money to win competitions. While Claudio Ranieri squandered money on players who had no place in a Championship winning team like Juan Sebastian Veron and Alexei Smertin, Mourinho brought in names that would go on to become synonymous with the club like Dider Drogba, Ricardo Carvalho and Michael Essien.

Many including myself regard Jose Mourinho as the first manager in the world. But a return would be met with amazingly high expectations from Chelsea supporters. Yet knowing Mourinho, those expectations would probably a challenge he would be happy and excited to take on.
