Mourinho has won it all. Championships and cups, as well as the greatst of them all ... the Champions League.
Roeder was manager of West Ham - they were relegated; Watford - they were relegated; Gillingham - they were 92nd in the Football League when he was sacked.
But Duff knows what he knows (allegedly).
Duff: 'It was great playing for Jose for two years. He is a great boss and a great guy - but the new gaffer here is exactly the same. I spoke to Joe Cole and I got glowing reports on Glenn. I didn't have to think about it twice.
'The first time I spoke to Glenn on the phone I knew. Then I spoke to Shay Given and the lads and they said the same: that he was a great guy.
'I had a lot of problems at Chelsea last season. It was a drag but I am only looking forward now.
'This club should be in the Champions League regularly. It is a massive club. We have 49,000 season ticket holders. It is a special place to play and we want to be in the Champions League.
'I couldn't go to Spurs because I have been a Chelsea fan for the last three years. It came down to a straight choice between Liverpool and Newcastle. I listened to my heart and it said go to Newcastle.'
