"I knew it wouldn't be an easy job," said Mourinho. "I had that experience before.
"You go to clubs with a huge history where people look to the history and not to the moment and the expectations are high but the job is difficult.
"I have had that experience with other clubs so nothing new for me."
"When I went to Real Madrid, we were in a difficult moment. No league title for many years, no cup title for many years, not even a Champions League quarter-final for many years.
"It was hard but it was good and it was good for my development as a manager too."
