Jose The Great stays put
24 Feb 2007 - 10:06:48
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has reiterated his desire to see out his current Stamford Bridge contract, which runs until the summer of 2010.
Ahead of the Carling Cup final against Arsenal, the Portuguese has again made it clear that he has no intention of walking away from the Blues, despite rumoured interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Mourinho said: "There are only two ways for me to leave Chelsea. One way is in June 2010. I finish my contract then and if the club does not give me a new one, it is the end of my contract and I am out.
"The second way is for Chelsea to sack me. There is not a third way - the way the manager decides to leave and walks away.
"No chance. I would never do this to Chelsea supporters."
Meanwhile, Mourinho also talked up his own achievements at both Chelsea and former club FC Porto.
He added: "I think I am a great manager. I'm not the best, but I'm in the group of eight, ten,12 or 14 in the world.
"I am the best in the history of my country. I think that's enough. Portugal is not third world. So what I did there is good enough.
"I came to England and won the title with Chelsea 50 years after they last won it. I was the first to win the title in the first year in the club. I won it twice."
