Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his love for the club never waned while he was away.

Ahead of tonight's last-16 Champions League second-leg against Galatasaray, currently 1-1 after the first-leg, Mourinho says the love he holds for Chelsea was never hidden and reaffirmed himself as the 'happy one'.

Mourinho said: "Sometimes it is difficult to explain, maybe because it was my first experience abroad?

"Maybe because at the same time I had Chelsea and English football and because English football is something with a lot of appeal.

"And when you like you really like... after that the relation lies with the fans since 2004 - you know, big deep relation we couldn't hide even when I was coaching with other teams so I like it.

"The club likes me and here I am and happy to lead."
