Chelsea boss Mourinho: Forget Special One, call me 'Godfather'!

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he returns to the Premier League as one of the 'Godfathers' of the game. Mourinho is excited to be back at Stamford Bridge.

"Maybe I am just going to be the Godfather," he says with Sir Alex Ferguson having now stepped down as Manchester United.

"I am one of the guys with more time in football.

"I have won all the English competitions and I think I'm the only European champion but that doesn't matter. So, maybe I have a bit more responsibility on my shoulders. I have to be an example for everybody in terms of conduct and support, to be there for everyone when they need me.

"I have a c.v, I have status and I think they feel I am one of them, despite my passport being different, because I always defend them, their country and their football."
