JOSE MOURINHO is ready to return to Stamford Bridge and rescue his beloved Chelsea.
All the Special One is waiting for is the call from Blues’ billionaire owner Roman Abramovich, who is desperately seeking a new manager to take over from reviled interim boss Rafa Benitez.
Rafa’s Bridge reign is in disarray after a disastrous run that includes Saturday’s 3-2 loss to Newcastle.
But Red Rom had better be quick.
Mourinho, who is sure to leave Spanish champs Real Madrid this summer, has already been bombarded with lucrative job offers.
But the Special One will ignore them all if there is a chance to go “home”.
Another La Liga defeat at the weekend, courtesy of Cristiano Ronaldo’s own goal at Granada, piled even more pressure on the underfire boss.
The intensity of feeling at the Bernabeu has increased ahead of the double-header with Manchester United in the Champions League last-16.
And sandwiched between those two huge games is a Copa del Rey semi-final second leg away to arch-rivals Barcelona.
