Mourinho eyes extended stay

04 June 2013, 16:08

Cape Town - Newly appointed Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says the time is right for him to stay at a club for an extended period.

Mourinho on Monday signed a four-year deal to return to a happy hunting ground where he led Chelsea to five titles between 2004 and 2007.

The "Special One" is yet to remain at a single club for more than three full seasons however, having managed Inter Milan and Real Madrid since he left Stamford Bridge.

But he hinted on Monday that may be ready to lay down roots in west London.

"I am the same. Physically the same, but every day you have to think about yourself and about evolution," he told the Sky Sports website.

"I have the same nature, but I am much more mature with a different approach to things, I am more ready to be in a club and stay for a long time."

Mourinho also revealed it took just five minutes with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to agree his return.

"It was an easy decision. I met the boss, I met the owner and in five minutes after a couple of very short but pragmatic questions, we decided straight away.

"I asked the boss 'do you want me back?' and the boss asked me 'do you want to come back?' and in a couple of minutes, the decision was made."
