Newcastle legend Shearer: Forget Chelsea, entire Premier League NEEDS Mourinho

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer says the Premier League NEEDS Jose Mourinho. Shearer wrote in The Sun: "Jose Mourinho's return to England is not just what Chelsea needs but what the Premier League needs.

"I know Manchester United fans will not agree, but it has gone a bit stale.

"Perhaps we were spoilt by that incredible finale 12 months ago.

"I have to say the 'great battle for fourth' isn't quite what we expected to be talking about at this stage of the season.

"The only other thing we seem to have been debating of late is who is going to be declared the third-worst club in the division.

"It has been that case for some time with this title race basically over since the start of February and two sides cut adrift at the bottom.

"But I really believe we could be in for a feast next time around with Mourinho the main ingredient again."
