Ballack implores Mourinho to target Premier League with Chelsea

Jose Mourinho should again concentrate on winning the Premier League if he returns to Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho should again concentrate on winning the Premier League if he returns to Chelsea.

They are the sentiments of former Blues star Michael Ballack who played under the ‘Special One’ at Stamford Bridge and hopes he does head back to Southwest London to get the club back into Premier League contention.

Over the past two years, Chelsea have won the Champions League and Europa League titles but Ballack feels Mourinho needs to push for his third domestic championship in England.

"Mourinho did fantastic for Chelsea - the fans love him and you can see why he wants to go back to where he was loved to try and be successful," Ballack said at the adidaslab in London.

"After winning two European trophies now, maybe Chelsea should be focused on the Premier League.

"Manchester United have lost a big manager so it will be interesting to see how they do. Next season will be a big fight between Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City.

"During my time at Chelsea the focus was on European success. Now Chelsea have achieved that, maybe it is time to focus on winning the league again."
