Ricardo Carvalho: Chelsea can win the Premier League next year
Ricardo Carvalho believes Chelsea will be capable of winning the Premier League next season with Jose Mourinho in charge
Ricardo Carvalho believes Chelsea will be capable of winning the Premier League next season with Jose Mourinho at the helm.
Mourinho, 50, is set to take over at Stamford Bridge for a second time after the Portuguese coach flew to London on Sunday following his last game in charge of Real Madrid the day before.
And Carvalho, who won two Premier League titles under Mourinho during the defender’s time at Chelsea between 2004 and 2010, says the Blues will be a force to be reckoned with next term.
“I’m sure in two, three years they can but even in his [Mourinho’s] first year he can win it again,” said Carvalho.
“When we arrived together in 2004 Chelsea had not won the league for 50 years so I hope now they can win it again.
“Jose is a special coach and I think he deserves all the best because he works very hard.”
Carvalho has agreed a deal to join French side Monaco after making just 15 appearances for Real Madrid this season.
