Jose Mourinho proclaimed that he is ‘the Happy One’ on his return to Chelsea, adding that he is calmer and a better manager than he has ever been. The 50-year-old Portuguese, who first managed the Blues between 2004 and 2007, was officially announced as Chelsea’s new boss on June 3.
“I am the Happy One,” declared Mourinho at a Stamford Bridge news conference.“Calmer? I believe so. I’m in the best moment of my career in terms of knowledge.”
He added: “I began management in 2000. I thought I knew everything, but after 13 years you realise you know nothing and have to learn every day. My adventures around Europe were fantastic for me, different countries, different cultures, different media. It was fantastic.
“At 50, I think I am still very young as a manager and I think it is like the beginning of a new period. Do I have a different personality? No, but for sure I have a different approach and perspective.”
Former Real boss Mourinho, who replaces Rafael Benitez at Stamford Bridge, has signed a four-year deal and said he wants to stay for the entire term.
