Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has scoffed at claims he wept when learning he missed out on the Manchester United job.

In Diego Torres' book 'Prepare to Lose: The Mourinho Era', it is claimed that Mourinho sobbed when he was told that David Moyes would be taking over at United and viewed the decision as a betrayal by Ferguson.

"I think the person who wrote that book shouldn't write books. He should write books for kids using his imagination," Mourinho said.

"I am where I want to be. I want to go nowhere else. I have the job I want to have, I don't have another job.

"When I left Porto I wanted to come to England because at that time there was no Chelsea, I had no emotional connections with any club.

"When I left Chelsea I wanted only Italy or Spain, not another English club.

"After Real Madrid I wanted England and if possible, Chelsea. It's the only time I've said this country and this specific club.

"If not Chelsea then I'd have been in England at another club, but when the door at my club opened for me, I had the job I wanted to have."
