“His past speaks for itself. At Porto, nobody expected him to win the Champions League, but he won it. After he moved to Chelsea, they hadn’t won the league for 30 years or something, and he was champion there. Go to Inter Milan, no championship for 15 years, and he wins everything there.

But on this path he’s doing better than in the recent past. He’s preparing for the future to do better and try to make the jump to be champions.”
