The ‘Special One’ doesn’t want to leave the trophy cabinet empty.
Returning Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that if the 50-year-old’s doesn’t win trophies at Stamford Bridge, then the Portuguese maestro will leave west London.
Mourinho came back to the Blues this summer after six years away from the club, having won five pieces of silverware last time around between 2004 and 2007.
Now the boss wants to repeat that same level of success and expects it to happen immediately.
“Of course, it is about winning trophies. My DNA didn’t change, my nature didn’t change,” the former Inter Milan and Real Madrid manager was quoted by goal.com.
“I am not the kind of person to be at the same club for three or four years without winning a trophy.
“In this case, I don’t need the club to say ‘we are not happy with you, goodbye’. I will be the first one to say ‘I gave everything I could but I didn’t succeed, so let’s both go and try a different thing’.”
With the Portuguese coach back in charge at the Bridge, the side have been strongly tipped to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2010.
There is already more self belief around the club after two unsuccessful seasons in the league recently, having been nowhere near title contention in either 2013 or 2012.
Youngsters Andre Schurrle and Marco Van Ginkel have both been bought in, whilst Belgian aces Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne are both back with the team after successful loan spells in 2012/13 with West Bromwich Albion and Werder Bremen.
