The Blues are searching for a new manager after sacking Graham Potter at the start of April and appointing Frank Lampard as caretaker boss until the end of the season.

Chelsea intend to hold further talks with Luis Enrique, Julian Nagelsmann and Mauricio Pochettino but sports broadcaster Keys believes they should be looking elsewhere for their next permanent manager.

Mourinho won three Premier League titles over two spells at Stamford Bridge and Keys believes Chelsea should be doing everything they can to bring him back at the end of the season.

Since his last stint at Chelsea, Mourinho has managed Manchester United, Tottenham and Roma, where he has been since the summer of 2021.

Keys offered another recommendation to Chelsea on beIN SPORTS and suggested they should try to convince club legend John Terry to act as Mourinho’s No. 2.

Terry, one of Chelsea’s greatest and most decorated players, spent some time working with the club’s academy before following Dean Smith to Leicester City earlier this month.

‘My choice would be Jose Mourinho with John Terry as his assistant,’ Keys said.

‘Chelsea fans would buy into that and I think Mourinho would have the strength to sort it all out. He’s still the Special One.

‘Look at what he’s doing at Roma – they’re third in Serie A and they’ve already won a trophy and are on course to win another one this season.’
