ST. LOUIS (AP) Chelsea players seem pleased Jose Mourinho appears headed back for a second stint as manager, even after he failed with Real Madrid.
Midfielder Juan Mata said Wednesday prior to the first of two U.S. friendlies against Manchester City that the 50-year-old Mourinho is among the best coaches in the game.
"We don't know what's going to happen but if he comes he's welcome because he's one of the best," Mata said. "Chelsea always wants to be a top squad and if he comes we're going to be happy to have him."
