Mourinho and Abramovich can work together without any problems, the Special One revealed before the 2015-16 Premier League season.

And now they are working for Chelsea’s second title in a row. The Blues are favourites to win the 2015-16 Premier League season. Bet365 offers their title defence at odds of 2.63 (13/8).
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho revealed that any fight with club owner Roman Abramovich ended long ago.

However, the Portuguese left in September 2007 after Mourinho and Abramovich had a quarrel.
After he returned in 2013, he needed only two years to bring back the Premier League trophy to Stamford Bridge. He revealed that in his first spell at Chelsea he had some professional arguments with the Russian club owner. He said, “In my first period, my personal relationship [with Abramovich] was very good [but] professionally we had some interferences and a bit of a disagreement with some ideas.”
He added, “In this moment we don’t have this problem. When I left Real Madrid to come here, Mr Abramovich asked me to fight for titles. In my first season we were almost there, in my second season we did it and in my third season if you are close, you can always do it.”
Mourinho and Abramovich are having a smooth relationship, according to the world class manager, since he returned to Chelsea from Real Madrid in 2013.

Liverpool have amazing investment. Man City is a squad to love and a club, with two Premier Leagues in the last four or five years. And Man United with everything – the history, the players, the investment.”
Reigning champions Chelsea was defeated by FA Cup winner Arsenal 1-0 in the Community Shield last Sunday. The Blues kick off their Premier League season at the Stamford Bridge against Swansea on Saturday.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is preparing to fight for his fourth Premier League title in his third year of his second spell at Stamford Bridge. To claim the trophy, it is also important that Mourinho and Abramovich are all good, as gambling news reported, despite they had some disagreements in their past.
Mourinho also goes for his second title in a row. The Stamford Bridge outfit would be the first side to retain the Premier League trophy since Manchester United in 2009. The Portuguese said that this year’s story will be similar to recent seasons. He said, “The top five are the top five, and why not a club like Tottenham to get in there?”
He added, “But in the end history plays a part and investment plays a part. Chelsea (were) four times champion in the last decade.” Mourinho also mentioned Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United as potential title contenders. He did not left out Manchester City of course, the team that will be Chelsea’s opponent in the Blues’ first away game on next Sunday, as many, who follows sports scores might know.
