Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has his eyes firmly fixed on winning the race for this seasons Premiership title, and has gone so far as to say winning this season would eclipse the 2004/2005 when he won the crown for Chelsea their first title in 50 years.
Mourinho said: “I always said my job this time would be a different job profile. I do my work the best I can.
“I came here to give my best, knowing that this team and this squad couldn’t be ready to achieve what people probably think we have to achieve.
“I’m at the stage of my career, probably the best moment of my career, which is being still a young manager but already with years and years of experience, where nothing is new for me in football.
“Everything that happens to me feels like déjà vu. It has happened to me before, for sure. I’m cool, I’m normal.”
The 50-year-old is no fool when it comes to politics in football, and is not afraid to have to leave Chelsea for a second time if need be.
“When you are the type of personality that puts pressure on yourself, I don’t think you need to be worried about anything else,” Mourinho said.
“I’m the kind of guy that year after year, title after title, I don’t change. I lose, I’m not happy. We don’t play well, I’m not happy.
“I lose, I want the next match. I lose, I want the next training session to try to improve.”
