Sporting Lisbon could hijack Chelsea’s legend only if a particular presidential candidate wins the upcoming election.
During the speech in Portugal, Pedro Madeira Rodrigues claimed that he would finalize the signature of former England and Chelsea captain John Terry if he beats the other contenders to the top job at Lisbon.
Terry left his former club in the championship, Aston Villa last summer when the club needed to cut-short wage bill.
But currently, the new owner of Aston Villa may influence manager Steve Bruce to bring back his captain to the club in a quest to save his team from their current woes.
However, Pedro is poised to bring in few more players to the club in a bid of influencing the mind of the voters as their first choice.
“I’m negotiating by the penny. They are foreigners. A left-back, a striker and a great champion – all players who have no contract.” He said.
He also claimed that if he had become the president earlier on he would have brought in two players who had not been on contract.
He hinted that the two players he would have brought to the club if he had won the election last week were foreigners which would rather be Yaya Toure and Marchisio but he lost them to Olympiacos and Zenith St Petersburg.
He also considered bringing in Claudio Ranieri after the French man lost his place in the French side (Nantes).
Rodrigues will join forces with Jose Maria Ricciardi for a joint reign as the vote will take place on Saturday to decide the future leadership of the club.
Notwithstanding, Terry might look to join Bruce in Aston Villa after motivating Tammy Abraham to do so.
EPL: Lampard Makes Demand From His Players After Leicester City Draw
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has made a unique demand from his players after the disappointment of the Premier League game with Leicester City on Sunday evening.
In his post-match press conference after the league clash with the Foxes, Lampard demanded more personality from his players.
According to Frank Lampard, his players were unable to sustain the tempo after a fast start against the Foxes.
The new Chelsea boss said that the performance against Leicester City didn’t reach the level attained during the UEFA Super Cup clash with Liverpool on Wednesday night.
Chelsea lost the UEFA Super Cup to the Reds on penalties after the two teams involved shared a four-goal salvo.
The UEFA Super Cup was the second game of the season for Chelsea and they faced their third game of the current campaign against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.
Chelsea took an early lead through young midfielder Mason Mount who marked his home debut for the Blues in style after he dispossessed Leicester City star Wilfried Ndidi on the edge of the visitors’ box.
Leicester City leveled proceedings in the second half through the aforementioned Ndidi who produced a bullet header to atone for his error and also earn a point for his team.
Jose Mourinho Complains About Lack Of Managerial Job
Former Manchester United and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has complained about his inactivity as far as a top managerial job is concerned.
Portuguese tactician Mourinho talked about how he misses the dugout while he was doing his punditry work with popular English media channel Sky Sports at the weekend.
According to him, he thought he would enjoy time off the dugout but that has not been the case with the ex-Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss.
Jose Mourinho says he misses being a manager.
He was recently signed by Sky Sports as a pundit and the Portuguese manager made his debut on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season.
Jose Mourinho has been without a managerial job since being sacked as the Manchester United manager in December 2018.
He was dismissed from the Manchester United job shortly after the 3-1 loss to hosts and reigning European champions Liverpool.
Jose Mourinho has received several offers since his exit from Manchester United but they have not met his standards.
He was linked with a return to former clubs Real Madrid and Chelsea earlier this year before Zinedine Zidane and Frank Lampard took the jobs respectively.
For now, Mourinho has to make do with his punditry job with Sky Sports.
EPL: How Chelsea Players Ignored Lampard’s Halftime Warning In Leicester City Draw
Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta has narrated how they ignored the warning from manager Frank Lampard during the halftime of their Premier League clash with Leicester City.
Azpilicueta told reporters about the halftime warning ignored by the Chelsea players shortly after the game.
According to him, Frank Lampard told the players that they needed a second goal to secure the points in the home game against the Foxes.
Chelsea had a one-nil lead at halftime courtesy young English midfielder Mason Mount after the former Derby County loanee dispossessed Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi to fire the ball past Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
It was a magical moment for Mason Mount who scored on his home debut for his boyhood club.
Leicester City equalized in the second half through a bullet header from the aforementioned Ndidi who atoned for his error in the first half.
The header from Super Eagles star Ndidi was enough to earn Leicester City a point from the game.
Cesar Azpilicueta and Chelsea are still waiting for their first win of the season after three games.
Their next game is the league visit to newly promoted outfit Norwich City who won their first game of the season via the 3-1 win over Newcastle United at the weekend.
Lampard Singles Out One Player After Leicester City Draw
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard singled out one player for praise after his team could only manage a draw against Leicester City.
Lampard led Chelsea to a 1-1 draw with Leicester City at home in the Premier League game played on Sunday evening.
After the game, Frank Lampard was full of praise for young Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount for his performance against the Foxes.
The Chelsea legend pointed out his quality while he was fielding questions from reporters at his post-match press conference.
Mason Mount has been in very good form for Chelsea since he returned to the club from his loan spell at English Championship club Derby County.
The 20-year-old midfielder played at Derby County for Frank Lampard last season as the Rams got to the Championship playoff final before being beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa who are in the Premier League as a result of that win.
Mason Mount returned to Chelsea from the Derby County loan spell and was one of the best players for the Blues during preseason.
He has continued that form into the new season after the midfielder robbed Leicester City star Wilfried Ndidi to give Chelsea a first-half lead.
Ndidi atoned for his error with a bullet header in the second half thereby earning a 1-1 draw for the Foxes.
Ashley Cole Says This Player Could Be World-class After Match With Leicester
Former Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole is certain that young midfielder Mason Mount has the right qualities to become a world-class player.
Ashley Cole spoke about Mason Mount while he was doing his punditry job on Sky Sports as he was impressed with young Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount and his outing against Leicester City on Sunday evening.
The young English player has started the season well despite the struggles recorded by Chelsea under Frank Lampard this season.
Mason Mount was one of the few Chelsea players that finished the Manchester United game with a little credit.
The 20-year-old was one of the best Chelsea players during the game which ended in a 4-0 win at Old Trafford.
Mason Mount went on to make a substitute appearance in the UEFA Super Cup loss to Liverpool last week Wednesday.
Chelsea lost 5-4 on penalties after the two Premier League giants played out a 1-1 draw at the end of ninety minutes and extra time.
Mason Mount then played a starring role for Chelsea in the 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City.
Chelsea took the lead through Mason Mount in the first half before Wilfried Ndidi earned a share of the spoils for Leicester City with a second half header.
