John Terry makes Jose Mourinho claim amid Thomas Tuchel's Champions League final masterclass with Chelsea

Chelsea legend John Terry has made a bold claim about Jose Mourinho amid Thomas Tuchel’s Champions League success at the club.

Terry is one of the most successful players in the Blues’ history, winning a multitude of trophies during his time at the club.

Some of his most successful years came when Mourinho was manager first from 2004 to 2007, and then for a second spell from 2013 to 2015.

The Portuguese boss is widely regarded to be Chelsea’s best ever manager.

However, other bosses since Mourinho have also had their fair share of success, with Tuchel being the most recent.

The German was appointed at the start of 2021 and within four months of taking the job, he led the club to their second ever Champions League title.

He also won the Super Cup and Club World Cup.

However, Tuchel was sacked earlier this week after 19 months in the job, with former Brighton boss Graham Potter being announced as his replacement on Thursday.

In the days following the German’s departure, Terry has made a bold claim about one of the club’s past managers.

Following a tweet from Olivia Buzaglo about the Champions League final last year, in which Tuchel’s Chelsea beat Manchester City, the former Blues captain said he would take Mourinho as manager for a one-off game over the former.

Mourinho won three Premier League titles at Chelsea but was never able to taste success on the continent with the Blues, despite reaching the semi-finals in 2014.

However, Tuchel was unable to win a domestic league title during his time in west London, with fourth and third place finishes being the closest he came.

Chelsea are now set to be under a new manager this season, with Potter making the switch from the south coast to west London.

Upon his arrival at the club, he said: "I am incredibly proud and excited to represent Chelsea FC, this fantastic football club.

"I am very excited to partner with Chelsea’s new ownership group and look forward to meeting and working with the exciting group of players and to develop a team and culture that our amazing fans can be proud of.

"I would also like to place my sincere thanks to Brighton & Hove Albion for allowing me this opportunity and in particular Tony Bloom and all the players, staff and supporters for their continued support during my time at the club."

His first game as boss is set to come against FC Salzburg in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Chelsea will be looking to improve on their previous performance in the competition, in which they lost 1-0 to Dinamo Zagreb.
