Man Utd legend Neville: English football NEEDED Mourinho return

Manchester United legend Gary Neville is delighted with Jose Mourinho's return to Chelsea. Neville wrote in the Mail on Sunday: " ... whoever you support, everyone should be delighted to have Jose Mourinho back for the new season.

"The Premier League is about passion, excitement, never-say-die spirit - and big personalities. With Sir Alex Ferguson retired, and uncertainty surrounding the futures of Gareth Bale, Wayne Rooney and Luis Suarez, the league requires a Jose Mourinho character more than ever.

"He is the biggest signing of the summer for English football, more than that of any player. You can't ignore him, the way he challenges people, works the media or celebrates on the touchline like a fan. Understandably, there is a lot of hype surrounding Jose Mourinho's return and many experts make Chelsea their choice to win the title because of the Mourinho factor. But I'm yet to be convinced about them without a world-class forward."
