Ex-Chelsea ace Ballack backs Mourinho return

Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack feels Jose Mourinho's return to the club is brilliant.

The Portuguese is back as manager at Stamford Bridge after departing in 2007 and Ballack believes it will be a positive union.

"To have Jose Mourinho at Chelsea is a fantastic decision," he told Sky Sports.

"He is a great character and a great coach. Even at his age he has had unbelievable success.

"To go back to a club like this, it is never a bad decision. Chelsea are a fantastic club - they won the Champions League last year and this year the Europa League.

"The money will be right for him, the fans love him, he has a lot of English supporters, even if they don't support Chelsea.

"Altogether it is a great package for him."
