Who is the Most Successful Manager in The Blues History?

Who is the Most Successful Manager in Chelsea History?

Jose Mourinho is the current most successful Chelsea manager. He has earned the title of “Special One.”

After firing Claudio Ranieri after the 2003–04 season, the Portuguese manager was Abramovich’s first official recruitment as manager.

When Mourinho initially arrived in England in 2004, he practiced what he preached. He assisted the Blues in capturing their first league crown in fifty years while allowing just 15 goals all season and facing just one setback.

Long-term results showed that such a choice was extremely wise. The English club went on to win back-to-back Premier League championships and set a mark for the least goals allowed with just 15 in the 2004/05 campaign.

During Mourinho’s initial tenure at the club, which lasted a little more than three years, they also achieved the FA Cup and two League Cup championships.

The beginning of The Blues’ hegemony in English football would come with his hiring. That’s why he is widely considered the club’s best manager of all time.

Who is Chelsea Longest Serving Manager?

The longest serving Chelsea manager in history is David Calderhead. From 1907 through 1933, the ex Chelsea manager was in command of The Blue! That amounts to 26 years. It’s 966 games in total!

Calderhead was the first-ever manager at the Blues. He participated in several cup finals, but he was never able to bring home any trophy. Calderhead sadly passed away at the age of 73, only five years after leaving Stamford Bridge.
