Mourinho is reported to have agreed a new four-year contract at Stamford Bridge – and Terry is excited by the success the Blues could enjoy under the Portuguese.
“I was delighted to have him back and now I am delighted he will stay for a few more years,” Terry said. “It’s great news for the club but terrible news for everybody else because the other managers know that he finds ways to beat teams; he knows people inside out, on and off the pitch. Whether you’re a player or manager, he does his groundwork. He knows everything.
“For the whole place stability is key for us, which we have missed over the previous five or six years. It’s stable here, it’s calm.
“But the manager still pushes us every single day. You see him on the training pitch in pre-season – he is leading from the front. He demands the very best from us on a daily basis which is why for me he is the best in the world by a long way. He will keep striving, keep pushing players and getting the best out of them individually and collectively.
“He has always been a manager to take control of everything himself; he’s not one of those managers that stand back and watch from the sidelines. He is very much on the training pitch, taking the session himself and demanding things, pushing players day in and day out. He hasn’t changed at all.
“It’s exciting to be here at Chelsea now because there is a new stadium that we hope will go through and we can build. He wants to be here for that; we all want to be here for that. It’s exciting times for the football club and to have the best manager in the world, with some of the best players in the world, and to be winning, it’s great. His hunger to win is still phenomenal.”
