Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes he is a different person from the one who memorably called himself “The Special One”.
After being unveiled as Chelsea manager for the second time in his career on Monday, Jose Mourinho believes he is a different person from the one who memorably called himself “The Special One” the first time he took charge at Stamford Bridge.
Having struggled to really settle at Real Madrid, Mourinho now believes he is back where he is happiest, with a club he won two Premier League titles with during his first tenure between 2004-07.
The 50-year-old has gone away and has been successful with the likes of Inter Milan and Real but the manager clearly feels he has some unfinished business at The Bridge.
Chelsea have been largely unstable with managers since Mourinho’s departure six years ago, but a four-year deal with the London outfit should bring a new sense of stability to the Blues.
Certainly a fans’ favourite, Mourinho is looking forward to getting to work and helping Chelsea get back to the top of English football.
He said: “Time flies. A lot of things happened in my professional life in the last nine years, but I have the same nature, I have the same heart, I have the same kind of emotions related to my passion for football and my job, but I am a different person in this moment.
“If I have to describe myself, I would describe myself as a very happy person because it’s the first time I arrive in a club where I already love the club.”
Mourinho added: “I think I’m back because we are in the best moments of our careers and ready to work together again. There are much better conditions at this time to succeed and have what we want, stability.”
