Chelsea skipper John Terry has hailed the clubs unity following the return of manager Jose Mourinho.
Terry found himself on the substitute bench last season under Rafa Benitez but has been implemented straight back into the starting line-up since Mourinho has taken charge.
The ‘Special One’ managed Chelsea for three years in 2004, winning the Premier League twice, the League Cup and FA Cup but returns to Stamford for a second crack of the whip.
And the retired England international praises the philosophy Mourinho has implemented into the Chelsea squad.
"We are looking fit and very much together - and Jose brings that.” Terry told the Daily Mirror.
"It is us against everyone else and I think that is what made us when he was here before and we are very much in the same mould again."
Chelsea have begun the season with seven points from a possible nine and Terry declares the players and supporters have welcomed Mourinho back with open arms and the former Real Madrid manager is ‘back home.’
"His man-management is excellent and he makes people want to play for him.
"He has it spot on.” He said.
"If there was a managerial manual, he would tick every box. We are delighted to have him back.
"He has come home and all the players feel the same.
"Hopefully what we know about Jose and what Jose knows about the Premier League will make the difference in the title race."
Chelsea will hope to continue their unbeaten record away at Everton this weekend before opening their Champions League account to FC Basle on Wednesday night.
