2004 will go down in the history books as the period when acquired one of the most cultured central defenders in Europe.

With John Terry and William Gallas firmly established as the centre back pairing, many questioned Mourinho`s judgement in once again returning to his old club, Porto, when we already possessed two of the best central defenders around.

However, Mourinho`s judgement was spot on. Since his arrival, Carvalho, despite the occasional spat with Jose, has become one of the untouchables and if it required adversity for his true recognition to be realised, that was to prove to be the case.

As Chelsea suffered a plethora of injuries to central defenders, often leaving Ricardo as the only one available, Carvalho stepped forward and produced some remarkable displays.

Sadly, as is often the case in sport, injury was to strike at the most inopportune moment and deprive Ricardo of a FA Cup winners medal to go with the others, including two Premiership title winners medals, he`s won at Chelsea since he arrived.

Carvalho - a class act!
