Mourinho: "Now I can say I'm one of you"

New, comments

Chelsea FC have released a teaser interview with new manager (how good it feels to type that!) Jose Mourinho, promising a special message from the Special One. It doesn't disappoint. Mourinho has always promised passion and success, and he's delivered everywhere he's been. But this time is different to his other stops. It's not just a job anymore. Why? From that video, here's Mourinho's message:

"Now I can say I'm one of you."

Mourinho isn't just Chelsea's manager this time around. Thanks to his previous tenure at Stamford Bridge, he's become a supporter as well. He's always had a special place in the heart of the club, and that love has long been reciprocated. His departure was a huge, huge mistake for both parties -- he even said it was difficult to play against us with Inter Milan (didn't stop him knocking us out, though!) -- and now it's been resolved, everyone's happy save rival clubs and fans. Welcome home, Jose. One of us!
