Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti have managed Chelsea in the past, with both managers recording some level of success.

Mourinho won three Premier League titles over two spells, while Ancelotti won the league just once with the Blues and lasted only two years at the club before facing Roman Abramovich ax.

Mourinho is the current manager of Tottenham, while Ancelotti is the manager of Everton. Both managers will face each other in a Premier League fixture on Monday night at the Tottenham Stadium, and Mourinho has revealed his love for the Italian.

Mourinho has even admitted that he’s going to break social distancing rules and give Ancelotti a hug.

“I think everyone in football admires Carlo [Ancelotti] as a coach and as a person,” Mourinho told reporters.

“If you don’t know him as a person at least you know him as a coach. I like him so much as a person that I’m going to say the obvious, which is that he is one of the top managers in the world in the last two decades and of course now.

“I think it’s a privilege for the Premier League to have Carlo back. It’s a privilege for Everton to have him as their manager or head coach, whatever you want to call him.

“As a person, I’ve had the privilege of knowing him for a few years, to stay and be with him a few times, at UEFA meetings or other different occasions and I just love Carlo.

“I think he is a fantastic guy so I think I am going to break the rule of one-metre distancing and I’m going to hug him because I like Carlo very much.”
