Chelsea's Mourinho: 'I don't want to win Europa League'

Jose Mourinho has made it clear that he has no interest in winning the Europa League.

The returning Chelsea manager says he has no plans to compete in Europe's second tier club competition next season after interim boss Rafael Benitez clinched the title with the Blues in 2012/13.

"I don't want to win the Europa League," Mourinho told the BBC on Tuesday.

"If I win the Europa League it will be a big disappointment for me because I don't want to play in it.

"I don't want my players to feel the Europa League is our competition."

Mourinho added that the Champions League is Chelsea's primary concern in terms of Europe.

"That's the only European competition we have to play and that's the European competition we have to give our best," he added.
