Avram Grant took over the manager's position for Chelsea the very next day after Mourinho decided to end his three year time in power with the club. Grant, 52, takes the position of Chelsea's new manager from director of football and will be given a hand by Steve Clarke.

Some words from Mourinho regarding the club were; "I am very proud of my work in Chelsea Football Club and I think my decision in May 2004 to come to England was an excellent one," said Mourinho. "It was a beautiful and rich period of my career. I want to thank all Chelsea FC supporters for what I believe is a never-ending love story. "I wish great success to the club, a club that will be forever connected to me for some historical moments." wish the players happiness in football and in their family life. Finally on my wife's and children's behalf we thank the great professionalism of their school teachers and the beauty of so many friends."

An open communication was released by Chelsea to thank their fans for their tolerance and considerations during the clubs difficult times stating that his decision was mostly due to prevent the team from any further down falling from this or any other issue that would have a serious impact on the club.

In most part, fans, teammates and the Chelsea staff as long as the people in charge of the club are very grateful and content with the work Mourinho has done.
