New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho today spoke of the happiness he feels at returning to the club for a second time and insists that this time he will be more successful than ever, The Express reports.

Speaking at a press conference to confirm his appointment as Rafa Benitez’s successor, he said: “I am the happy one. Time flies, it looks like it was a couple of days ago but it was nine years ago when I first became manager and since then a lot of things happened in my professional life.

“I have the same nature, I am the same person, I have the same heart and the same kind of emotions related to my passion for football and my job, but of course I am a different person.

“If I have to describe myself I would describe myself as a very happy person. It is the first time I arrive in a club where I already love the club, before I had to build an emotional relationship and I only came to love the club a little later.”

“I want to believe it is possible – I always trust my work.

“In this case I know many people who belong to the club and I know the type of mentality and ambition people have.

“My career has been built and raised on success. In every club I was able to achieve success and win trophies and leave different types of legacy. I have to believe in that.

“The club is more important than ourselves. If we work well – normally success arrives.”

He was also quick to deny that his relationship with Roman Abramovic broke down when he left the club in 2007.

“I read that I was fired and we had a complete breakdown in relationship, that was not true. At the time we thought it was the best for both of us.

“It was a decision that was difficult for both of us but a decision made by mutual agreement. There was never a break of the relationship and that is why it was possible for me to be here today.

“I am back because we feel we are in a moment of my professional life and in the case of the owner, also a moment in his career as owner, where I think we are in the best moments of our careers and ready to work together again and in much better conditions this time and to succeed in what this club wants, which is stability.”
