JOSE Mourinho's mooted Chelsea return would be an 'interesting story' for the world of football.
That is the view of Blues goalkeeper Petr Cech, who worked under the Special one for three successful years at Stamford Bridge.
Cech has spent nine years between the sticks for the Blues and has seen eight managers come and go during his time at the club.
None have made a bigger impression on him than Mourinho and the 30-year-old shot-stopper admits his old boss would be made more than welcome back in the Chelsea dressing room.
He said: “The feeling is that any manager that comes will be welcomed. In terms of the team, you can’t really choose your manager, but we had great success with Mourinho in the past and people still have great memories and admiration for him.
“I believe that if he comes back, the story will be interesting for everyone, but so far we have no confirmation. If he comes back he will be more than welcome. You always remember a manager who gives you a chance to play and who you have success with as a club.”
The current Chelsea manager, Rafa Benitez, is set to leave the club in the summer, paving the way for Mourinho's return to London.
Cech reckons Benitez has done well for the club given the difficult circumstances he has worked under since his arrival in SW6.
“It was not easy for him [Benitez] with the reception he got but I think from day one it was clear that we are all in same boat, added Cech.
“He can here to improve and help the situation and to do as best as possible; this is what we do, he does, and all the coaching staff does.”
