Jose Mourinho`s return for a second spell as manager has brought a new feeling of unity at Chelsea, according to club stalwarts Frank Lampard and John Terry.Stamford Bridge was a fractured place last season after crowd favourite Roberto Di Matteo was replaced by interim manager Rafael Benitez, who was never accepted by the fans because of disparaging comments he made during a previous spell with Liverpool.Lampard said that there is a lovely buzz around the place, after scoring with a thumping 35-metre free kick in Chelsea`s 2-0 home victory over promoted Hull City in their opening Premier League game of the season on Sunday.
He also added that he was very excited in the morning to get going again and the whole stadium was buzzing with the manager returning. All it needs now is for them to go and perform consistently and keep getting results.Jose coming back in as manager has given us all a huge lift. He created a team that brought great success here and it`s great to have him back.They want to kick on again this season and they have got a great squad that is capable of competing for honours on all fronts.
Former Real Madrid and Inter Milan manager Mourinho, returning to the team he led to back to back league titles in 2005 and 2006, was given a rapturous welcome by the supporters and the Portuguese again underlined how special he felt to be back at Chelsea.
