Mourinho to repeat Chelsea glory: Survey

London, June 30 (ANI): A new poll done on football fans across England has revealed that Jose Mourinho is likely to bring Chelsea glory once again and that David Moyes is likely to struggle in his new tenure with Manchester United.

According to reports from The Sun, football fans in all four corners of the nation were asked their opinion and most thought that Wayne Rooney would be better off staying at Manchester United.

The most striking result was of 60 percent people thinking Moyes would struggle to fill in the shoes of former boss Alex Ferguson and of only 12 percent thinking he would be fine.

The next season will have three major clubs Chelsea, United and Manchester City with new managers and Mourinho is the favourite to do the best, the poll study revealed after stating that 52 percent people had gone for him.

Only 21 percent of the people thought that Moyes was most likely to surpass the others, while 15 percent showed faith in Manuel Pellegrini.

The report also said that 34 percent people thought Chelsea would win their first title since 2009-10, with 28 percent going for Manchester United to retain their crown and 15 percent going for City to lift the title.

Fans showed in the study that they have had enough of paying premium prices to watch Premier League football, with 34 percent saying that they would not pay more than 20 pounds to watch their favourite team and 29 per cent holding 30 pounds to be the maximum.

However, about 60 percent people agreed that the Premier League was the best division in the world followed by Bundesliga and Spain's La Liga, with a lot of strong feelings being shown on the number of overseas players taking part in the league. (ANI)
