Demba Ba admits he is excited by the prospect of Jose Mourinho returning to Chelsea this summer.

The path was cleared for the Portuguese coach to return to Stamford Bridge this summer after Real Madrid confirmed that the 50-year-old will be leaving the Bernabeu in June after three years in charge.

Mourinho, who led the Blues to six trophies between 2004 and 2007, is the overwhelming favourite to take the reins from interim boss Rafael Benítez in west London.

And striker Ba believes Mourinho’s winning mentality makes him the right man to take charge at the club.

“You see what he has won, what he has brought to his teams and to his players individually, and of course he is one of the best,” Ba told Sky Sports.

“He knows everything about Chelsea having already managed the team for three or four years. He knows everybody here and he knows the club.

“Everybody is thinking about it and everybody is happy. They know that he is a person that wants to win.”
