Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes there won’t be any dominance from one side in the Premier League as there has been with Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga and Juventus in the Italian Serie A, reports Sky
The Portuguese coach is currently on course to win the Premier League with Chelsea, and many have tipped the Londoners to win it again in 2015/16. But Mourinho doesn’t feel any side in the English top-flight can dominate the division for multiple seasons, as the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City will be strong next season to put the pressure on Chelsea in the title race.
While in other nations, there have been a side more dominant than the rest in the last few years, the Premier League could well see three different champions in as many seasons if Chelsea go all the way this campaign – as Manchester United and Manchester City won the preceding titles before 2015.
Bayern Munich recently sealed the title in the Bundesliga, and have been dominant in their domestic division for years. Juventus are close to sealing their fourth consecutive Serie A crown. Mourinho was quoted as saying: “At this moment, it’s very difficult in the Premier League for a team to be dominant.”
“This is not Germany with Bayern (Munich). This is not Switzerland with Basle. This is not Scotland with Celtic. It’s even more difficult to dominate than before. How can you speak about domination when everyone knows what will happen next summer?”
