Ba was speaking after Chelsea's post-season friendly defeat to Manchester City in St Louis, in which Chelsea squandered a three-goal lead to lose 4-3.

The striker admitted that the fact that Mourinho had already spent time at the club could well give Chelsea an advantage next season.

"You see what he has won, what he has brought to his teams and to his players individually, and of course he is one of the best," Ba told Sky Sports News.

"He knows everything about Chelsea having already managed the team for three or four years. He knows everybody here and he knows the club.

"Everybody is thinking about it and everybody is happy. They know that he is a person that wants to win."

Mourinho, whose departure from Real Madrid was confirmed earlier this week, has been widely tipped to succeed interim manager Rafa Benitez at Stamford Bridge.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
