Mourinho says the club is well prepared for the draconian rules.
"We are a clever shark," said Mourinho. "The shark that knows when to attack and how to attack. Chelsea have changed a lot because we know that the Financial Fair Play is going to be put into practice. And, of course, we want UEFA to rule the situation and to find if somebody is not doing the same."
Mourinho said his use of "economic sharks" to describe the richest clubs was not intended to be derogatory.
"Football needs sharks," he explained. "Sharks is probably not the word. Football needs investment and people who love the game and want to make bigger clubs from smaller clubs."
