'I stay until they want me not to stay. No club moves me from Chelsea until Chelsea wants me to move because I want to be where I am loved' - Jose Mourinho, January 2014 The 'Special One' returns as 'the Happy One', calmer and better than before. Greyer; perhaps less flamboyant, even opting for a self-inflicted crew cut (he borrowed the clippers from Fernando Torres). But he's still the Special One, still confrontational, passionate, full of chutzpah. Mourinho is a masterful tactician, and surely now the best boss in the business. In his first stint at Stamford Bridge he won two League titles back to back, the FA Cup and two League Cups, and included a still-unsurpassed Premier League points-tally record of 95 in the 2004-5 season. And upon returning to the club after a six-year absence, receiving a welcome by an army of Chelsea fans who love him every bit as much as they used to, he rewarded their faith in some fashion, sweeping aside newly rich Manchester City to soar to a third League title (with no less than three games to spare), as well as a third League Cup.This updated and expanded edition of Harry Harris's biography brings the story right up to the end of Mourinho's second season with Chelsea since his 2007 departure, showing exactly why English football would be infinitely poorer without the colourful and commanding presence of the 'Special One'.
