Mourinho wants to build young, exciting Chelsea team

Jose Mourinho wants to build a young, exciting team at Chelsea.

The Sun says the man who won six trophies in his first three-year reign in SW6 is planning an entirely different approach to life at Stamford Bridge second time around.

The emphasis this time will be on promoting exciting young talent, rather than buying in ready-made stars.

Mourinho wants to emulate Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and create a team and build a dynasty - a vision shared by Chelsea's billionaire owner Roman Abramovich.

That is a stark contrast to when Mourinho arrived in a blaze of glory in 2004 having just won the Champions League in his native Portugal with Porto.
