'It's good to be back' says Chelsea's Mourinho from Bangkok

Jose Mourinho was pleased with Chelsea's 1-0 victory in their first pre-season match on Wednesday.

The Blues beat the Singha All-Stars at the Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok thanks to a penalty from Romelu Lukaku and although it was only a narrow win, Mourinho admitted he was happy to be back in charge of the Stamford Bridge club.

"It's just good to be back, but I'm waiting for Hull City, my first match when we play for points," Mourinho said.

"Defensively we were very strong. We moved the ball quite well, but we didn't create many chances.

"We are not sharp at the moment, we have a lot to improve, but it was okay - it was a good training session.

"I'm okay with the game and that performance."

Chelsea will now travel to Kuala Lumpur on Thursday to continue their pre-season tour of Asia.
