Jose Mourinho insists he isn’t risking his legacy at Stamford Bridge by returning for a second spell as Chelsea manager.
The Portuguese tactician secured back-to-back titles in 2005 and 2006, as well as winning the FA Cup and two League Cups during his first stint in charge.
Mourinho has since landed the Champions League and two Serie A Scudettos with FC Internazionale Milano and a Spanish La Liga title with Real Madrid, but remains confident he can secure more silverware with Chelsea this term.
However, the 50-year-old insists that even if he fails to bring trophies to Stamford Bridge in his second spell in charge he will not destroy his legacy with the club.
“I don’t think I’m risking my legacy. No one can delete it, no one can take away my history at Chelsea,” he told the Sun.
“The only pressure I feel is the pressure of fighting for my own club.
“And it’s because being the manager of Chelsea means more than being the manager of any other club.”
Chelsea kick off their Premier League campaign at home to newly-promoted Hull City on Sunday, before games against Aston Villa (h) and champions Manchester United (a).
Mourinho will get his first chance to secure silverware at the end of the month when the Blues take on European champions Bayern Munich in the Super Cup.
