Mourinho: I don't fear wrecking my Chelsea legacy

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is confident he can build on the success he previously brought to the club.

Mourinho had no fears about returning to Stamford Bridge after successful spells at Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

He told The Sun: "No I don't think I'm risking my legacy here.

"What you did, you did. No one can delete it, no one can take away my history at Chelsea.

"And I know the Chelsea mentality. They will never forget what I did before. They will never forget that I gave everything to this club.

"I want to be seen as a new manager of Chelsea, I want to be analysed for what I do now.

"I want to work here and be loved for what I do now.

"My career is very rich. I have won lots of things in different places. Every competition I wanted to win, I did it.

"So I don't feel that pressure that a manager without a big CV would feel. The only pressure I feel is the pressure of fighting for my own club.

"Because being the manager of Chelsea means more than being the manager of any other club.

"Not because of what I did, not because of the pressure to succeed again. But because I always want Chelsea to win - even in the last five years with 10 different managers. Now I'm here, I can do something I couldn't do for the last five years - help Chelsea win. That's the only pressure I feel."
