Chelsea had won the 2014-15 league with Mourinho at the helm.

"When Hazard is the best player in the league, Chelsea is the champion", said Mourinho.
Earlier, Hazard had revealed that he would like to work, once again, under former manager Jose Mourinho.
Hazard also stated that Mourinho criticizes his players harshly if they lose a match or do not perform according to his expectations, but is the best coach in the world if they win.
The Belgian international pointed out that Mourinho was also easy with giving players off-days.
Before their fixture tonight, Maurizio Sarri was in praise of Mourinho, calling him one of the best managers and that Mourinho shall be winning titles very soon.
"You are talking about one of the best coaches in the world, the results speak for him," Sarri said.
He also praised the Manchester United squad, calling it one of the best in the league.
Hazard, linked with a move to Real Madrid, did say he would not move to the Spanish capital in the January transfer window.
Sarri believes that Hazard can win the Ballon d'Or at Chelsea, saying "For example, if Chelsea were able to win the Champions League and Belgium won the European Championship, he would be able to win everything without playing in Spain."
