Mourinho to retire at 55.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that he will retire from the game aged 55 - in 11 years.

The 44-year-old Portuguese boss does not want to follow the examples of rivals Sir Alex Ferguson, 65, and Arsene Wenger, 57, and continue towards or past "normal" retirement age.

"I am one of the best managers in the world," Mourinho boasted to SkySports. "I have made up my mind I will stay in the game until I am 55-years-old. When I return to Portugal at the end of my career I want to be the national coach.

"I don't want to retire too late - so it won't be in such a long time."

Mourinho won the UEFA Cup, Portuguese title (twice) and Champions League in less than three seasons with Porto and consecutive Premier League title in his first two seasons with Chelsea. However, European glory has eluded him at Stamford Bridge and his side currently lie nine points behind leaders Manchester United.

"We'll see if we can still win the Premier League," he said. "We have a lot of injuries and this mikes it hard… we are (second) thanks to a great mentality, but we cannot deny there have been difficulties."

Mourinho relaxed over Porto hype

Mourinho is keen on more silverware

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was keen to play down the hype ahead his side's home leg Champions League knock-out tie against Porto.
"I respect our opponents and I expect they will be strong but I have good players too," said the former Porto boss, whose side are 1-1 on aggregate.

"I don't think my Porto history is an issue any more. One day I will play against Chelsea.

"This is just another game. I just want to be in the quarter-final."

The Portuguese manager said Chelsea were hungry for more titles this season following their Carling Cup triumph over Arsenal in February.

"At the moment in the Champions League, 16 teams can win it and only two can win the Premiership," he added.

"From that aspect, it looks more difficult to win the Champions League because the 16 teams have the same chances.

"At this moment in the Premiership, Manchester United are in front and because of that they have more chances to win it than us.

"But Chelsea is alive in the three competitions we are involved with and we want more than the league cup.

"That competition is finished, it is over and the trophy is in our room. We are in three other competitions and out of the three, we want something more to stay with us."

Parts of it were reported in the press, but imo it's nice to hear the whole 20 minutes of the real thing. José mentions that
-he won't quit
-injury news
-he's a great manager

Heya! I've uploaded a few José Mourinho-interviews and a tiny document about him to YouTube and I thought I'd make this post to direct those in need of their daily José-dosage to the vids. ^^ Hopefully not all of you have seen these. *crosses fingers* Anyway, here's an interview with him after a (I don't know which) Chelsea-game and he talks about the situation at Chelsea and answers the interviewer's question about the rumours about him leaving Chelsea in his own way.

And here's a tiny document reflecting on the similarities between Rafa Benitez and José Mourinho. They also ponder about the 'what if' José left Chelsea. Plus here's an interview from Chelsea TV with our dear José, once again, of course, the topic is Chelsea.

Hi, thanks for joining jose_fans! We have 25 members so far- that's really good. I hope we can make this community a success.

Anyway, I'm just putting a few things in the user info and I can't decide something...

Should this community be slash-friendly?

Yes, definitely!
Yes, but only if it's headed correctly so I can avoid it if I want to.
No way.

I know that some people are uncomfortable with slash and I think it would be nice if we could decide this as a community. If you have strong feelings either way, I'd love to hear what you think- just comment.

Thanks. ;o)

Anyone knows Portuguese? I'm sure it's something about football :)
And one from FC Porto days. From the comments: "the idiot is talking about being champions next year, then saying that fc porto is the best, and that they are champions, and all that other good stuff, I can't stand this guy..." :)
