After the ego-packed realm of the Galacticos at Real Madrid, Mourinho can see the appeal of developing a young team.
"My DNA doesn't change but experience changes people," said Mourinho. "One team built many years ago is disappearing and we're facing a new situation of Financial Fair Play, so the club went in another direction, investing in new players to have a young squad.
"My job has a different profile to my first job at Chelsea but I don't want to be loved for what I did before.
"I want to be loved for what I'm doing now and in the future. We have to not feel protected because of what we achieved in the past."
