Mourinho is happy with Ballack's move to Chelsea

Share |

Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho welcomed the arrival of Michael Ballack to his team on Sunday and indicated the champions were trying hard to sign Ukraine striker Andriy Shevchenko.

Speaking from an open-topped bus as it snaked its way through west London, Mourinho told Chelsea TV: "He (Ballack) believes in us, he believes in Chelsea, he believes he can have success.

"He believes in the Champions League, he wants three, four years' success for him in a crucial time of his career." "He had a lot of other chances as you can imagine. He decided to come to Chelsea and I think we are very happy and I think also English football should be happy to have such a player playing in the Premiership."

In fact, the English champions are planning to present the 29-year-old playmaker, who helped Bayern Munich get a second successive German league and Cup double, at a news conference on Monday.

It important to mention that Bayern's fans, disappointed with Ballack's decision to leave, jeered him at his last game for the side on Saturday.

The German midfielder will be fighting for a place in a strong midfield that includes Frank Lampard, Claude Makelele of France and tough Ghana international Michael Essien.
