Jose pledges future to Chelsea

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

LONDON - Jose Mourinho (pictured right) has committed his long-term future to Chelsea, insisting he does not want to be a manager anywhere else.

The 50-year-old Portuguese, who started his second spell in charge of the London club ahead of the current season, said he'd only leave Stamford Bridge if sacked by the Blues.

"I'm not here thinking about my next move because I don't want to have a next move," Mourinho told Monday's London Evening Standard newspaper.

"I will have a next move if and when Chelsea decides it's time for that.

"I'm here to stay. I belong to Chelsea, Chelsea belong to me. I gave a lot to Chelsea in the past but they also gave a lot to me.

"This is a different professional relationship," added Mourinho, whose current Chelsea side are just a point behind Premier League leaders' Arsenal ahead of the Gunners match away to Aston Villa later Monday.

Mourinho's fist spell in charge of Chelsea, from 2004 to 2007, saw him guide the west London club to back-to-back Premier League titles, one FA Cup and two League Cup triumphs. But a lack of European success contributed to a parting of the ways with Roman Abramovich, the Russian billionaire who remains Chelsea's owner.
