Plans, plans, and more plans.  Immediate plans ("I will try to leave everything organised in a way I can go on June 20 and be back for pre-season"), next season plans ("fresh blood"), next decade plans.

"To have here today the champions of 2004/05 and 2014/15 is an amazing feeling because I belong to both, but the team of 2004 is over. Only John and Petr remain, Didier finished today. I belong to both generations but I know that to be back for the end of my team was hard, to see Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Michael Essien and Drogba leave is very hard for me, but my job is Chelsea's future and that's the team we have been working on in the last two years. It would be a dream to be here in 2025 and be with the champions of 2005, 2015 and 2025."

Of course, before we can have a the third Mourinho generation, we need to turn this second generation in consistent winners.  Key word: consistent.

"The teams of 2004/05 and 2005/06, and also after that, were fantastic teams and players. This team is at the beginning, they have won one Capital One Cup and one Premier League, they have to win more to be better than that. You can win something in a certain moment and that's it, or you can win on a regular basis, that's what makes the difference. Let's try to motivate them to do that."

Winning, winning, and more winning.  Immediate plans, next season plans, next decade plans.  So say we all.
