'Happy' Mourinho Unveiled to Press
Sky Sports, June 10th, 2013 12:30PM

TAGS:  england


When he first took the head-coaching job at Stamford Bridge nine years ago, Jose Mourinho famously swaggered into his first press conference calling himself the "Special One." On Monday, the Portuguese came into his second unveiling as Chelsea coach calling himself the "Happy One."

"I am 'The Happy One,’” Mourinho said during his introductory press conference after being asked if he is still the Special One. “I am very happy. 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." He added: "I am where I want to be. I wouldn't change it for anything. It is my job."

Mourinho also sought to set right questions about how his first stint as Blues manager ended in 2007. "I keep hearing that I was fired," he said, "that [owner Roman Abramovich and I] had a complete breakdown of our relationship -- that was not true. Many didn't believe that but it was a mutual agreement. We thought it was best for both of us, for me and the club ... only because there was never a breakdown of the relationship is it possible for me to be here today.”

Mourinho added that both he and Chelsea have been reunited "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."
