Jose shrugs off special tag

03 Jun 2008 - 11:58:53

New Internazionale coach Jose Mourinho says he no longer wants to be considered as special, having been formally unveiled as the new man in charge of the Serie A champions.

The Portuguese has succeeded Roberto Mancini at the San Siro and says he wants to forge a new reputation, having anointed himself with the tag of 'The Special One' upon his arrival at Chelsea.

"I am Mourinho, period," he told reporters. "I have arrived to a special club and I believe I am a great coach, but I don't want to be special.

"I don't change. I am the same person as I was before, with the same mission and the same passion for my work.

"I have always believed that I would like to work in Italy and at a great club.

"I want to thank Inter president Massimo Moratti and sporting director Marco Branca who have given me this opportunity. For me this is a very important challenge.

"I need to start a new cycle after that of Mancini, who I consider a great coach, but I am a different tactician.

"I want to change the football philosophy of the team, this is my challenge."
