Tottenham manager and former Chelsea boss José Mourinho, has named his all time favourite eleven, and the bulk of his squad is filled with ex Chelsea players from his time at the club.

Mourinho had two stints as Chelsea boss, with the Portuguese winning three Premier League titles, but he built a really formidable squad in his first spell.

Mourinho only went for the players he worked with while at Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan; in fact, 8 of them are from his former Chelsea side, while only Mesuit Ozil, Cristiano Ronaldo and Javier Zanetti are from his spells with other teams.

The list includes the likes of Petr Cech, William Gallas, Ricardo Carvalho, John Terry, Claude Makalele, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and Eden Hazard, whom he enjoyed great success with.

It’s no surprise to note that only Hazard made the squad from his second spell as Chelsea manager.

Many now believe that Jose has formed yet another quality squad at Tottenham that’s capable of winning the league.
