Mourinho: Chelsea Champions League ambition still intense

Jose Mourinho is confident Chelsea still have a burning ambition to win the Champions League again.

Winning the European Cup was an obsession for Chelsea and the one honour Mourinho failed to claim in his first spell at Stamford Bridge.

Yet he feels he played a part in the 2012 Munich success.

"I never felt the business was unfinished," he said. "For me the important thing is that Chelsea had a dream and the dream became true, by winning the Champions League.

"It's normal that if you win it once you dream to win it twice. That happened to me.

"And when I won the second time I dreamed to win for a third time. That's the nature of football.

"When you work in a club and you work in that, you prepare the future, you leave something in the club that remains for years.

"Your business doesn't finish the day you leave, your business finishes the day everything you did disappears."
