Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is delighted with his decision to return to Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho left Real Madrid to join Chelsea 18 months ago.
“I’d won everything in those three countries and then I knew what I wanted. I could choose where I wanted to go – not in terms of clubs but in terms of countries. I know where my family likes to be and where they were happier and Chelsea was my first love outside my country,” he told Sky Sports.
“I am enjoying my players. With so many years of football, the best moments, the best motivation is when you have a special feeling with your players. My best seasons are exactly in these moments where I feel a real connection with the players – when I feel a real pleasure to work with them, to be with them.
“They are a good group of guys. Some are already in the last phase of their careers but not many. Most of them have dreams to reach and I’m really happy to work with them.”
