Many Chelsea fans blamed Jose Mourinho when David Luiz decided to move from Chelsea to PSG in 2014. This transfer made David Luiz the most expensive defender in football history. However, Luiz returned to Chelsea when Antonio Conte was the coach.
The Ivorian striker left Chelsea after he won the UEFA Champions League title in 2012. Drogba scored more than 100 goals when he was a Chelsea player. In 2014, Chelsea announced the return of Didier Drogba. He went on to win the English Premier League title for Chelsea under the management of Jose Mourinho.

4. Nemanja Matic
Matic first moved to Chelsea in 2009. However, the Serbian international only made two appearances for Chelsea in the English Premier League. He decided to move to Benfica in order to get regular game time. Matic returned to Stamford Bridge in 2014.
