Jose Mourinho: I have changed my style

Jose Mourinho has often been viewed as a manager for short-term success; after all, he has not lasted for more than three years in any managerial job. However, he has been making claims that he wants to stay at Chelsea for the rest of his career.

Jose Mourinho changed man

The Portuguese has always been a controversial figure within the game. He now explains that such controversies cannot be done away with if the manager needs immediate success, but he can be more relaxed and develop relationships if he is to stay for a longer period. Speaking to the club’s official site, he said:

“I don’t know if my reputation is unfair or not. I reflect a lot about my style of leadership when I am at a certain club, at a certain project.

“One thing is to lead a team where I want to try to get the best results immediately. For a couple of years your leadership can be much more confrontational. It’s a completely different way to do it.

“It’s one thing to have a relationship with my players that I know are going to be my players for a couple of years. Another thing is to educate players with a relationship and with an empathy that I’m sure is going to be for five, six, seven, eight years. Completely different.

“I didn’t change, because I knew what I was doing when I did it. What I changed was my style, my way of being a coach and a manager.”

Mourinho was no stranger to incidents (involving either players or managers or even the owners) in the past, but his first six months back at Chelsea have been relatively quiet. In fact, he has even been trying to build this image of a protector of British football with aspects like his campaign against diving.

At the same time, he seems to be building a strong bond with the likes of Ramires and Eden Hazard – two regular first-team players.

Stability has been non-existent during the Roman Abramovich era, as it takes only a couple of bad results to take any manager out of the picture. Perhaps, things might just be different with this softer yet competitive version of Jose.


  1. I like chelseafc and the all the player in the club,mostly i like the performance of HAZARD,he played well,scoring fantastic goals,so i like him.For fernando Torres he played well also,but as a striker he must score much goals for the club.

  2. Pis Torres is going too score

  3. 2-1 my prediction, in favour of ChelseaFc

  4. I luv the blues, i luv Jose, i luv Hazard and Torres, but i don’t like the way Jose is treating Juan Mata

  5. the problem in chelsea atteckers is from thier mildfielders,all them are attacking mildfielders is only mikel who is creative mildfield,that is the reason why it looks like our strikers are doing well in scoreing line,but i belieave thy wil win todays match

  6. i like jose is a kind of man i really like so much and i like de way hazard is ball let him keep it up his going to carry world best with is style of playing

  7. Up blues,pls mr Morinho u must try to dey use mata

  8. Am 100% of chelsea fanz,i love bluz player.but jose pls play mata nau

  9. mata is good but too soft like occer willen azard they strong dan mata i want d manager to lite him go

    • Dis is nt an argument centre.so we must unite nd make chelsea d winning team in england nd in europe as well (up blues)!!.

  10. I luv chelseafc, both playaz nd de special Jose.it hurts me wen i see mata on de bench,bt mou knows y nd hw cfc ar winnin games without him

  11. 2 :0 in favour of the blues…torres nd ramires scorers

  12. Is it only stamina or heavy body the basis of playing well, despite all his skillful tactics, he has a good ball control. I thnk Mourinho should consider Juan Mata now!

  13. Blues 4 life anytime anyday, hazard is our new ronaldo keep it up man d sky is ur limit. Today match predictn chelsea 2-1 man u.mata is a gud player bt he need to improve on is strength.

    • We need mata pls jose pls nd pls he do alot in d pich play he is ace player of fc club wit hin we win champions lg! Pls stop threating him lky dis! I cn stop suporting dis club if mata is no more recoganize.

  14. 2day’s prediction. Chelsea 2 M united 1. Ramires & Harzard.

  15. The issue,all of the chelsea midfield are made up of attacking ones,chelsea needs to use mikel often cos of his defencive mindset..

  16. D truth is d foreigners and europeans are very selfish..mata is benched is an issue,bt wen mikel is benched is normal..mata shud be sold becos he is very lazy…

  17. I love Mata soo much.But if I’m the coach,he will seat on the bench until he improves.Please,sentiments apart,Hazard,Osca and Williams are playing better than Mata Now.Please Morinho has his way of winning,let him continue.or is Debrune,Luis,Cole,Ba,Essien,shwazer and shurie not good?But even Mata has had more time than them all.

  18. Nice jose keep it. On

  19. I love chelsea,here in kenya,coast

  20. chelsea has ones again done. Congratulations guys. Keep it up


    Mata is d best chelsea creative midfielder but he can’t perform wel in Morinho’s defensive method of playing bcause he can’t mark & win tackle against opponent like Ramires(playing pivotal role), Williems,Harzard & Oscar(exceptional player).

  22. Up Chelsea, Pls jose,we need mikel in midfield nd u should continue using hazard, Oscar nd wilian in attack on till mata improve on
    the pitch, (Blue 4 live )keep it up,we are going 2 win the league this season.

  23. I Wnt MATA mothrn jose mou,

  24. mourinho the needs of diego costa is needed at the chelsea squard, loan mata to athletic madrid and toress inoeder to have costa

  25. I’m blues fans l luv Jose but l don’t like the way we threat Juan Mata

  26. those complaining abt mata whom do u want to be benched..the team is nyce let’s leave for mourinho to arrange it.

  27. Okello Richard Ojede

    Chelsea Fc is my “motherland” where i feel Blues all the time. As a stornch fan i would prefer Lukako to Ba and to me even though Torres at times doesnt score, he still plays good game cos we have to look at the contributions/assists a player puts to a team as well.

  28. Wen he was creatin all d assist lst season we didn’t call him lazy player oo, bt nw dat we nw hav many in his position he is nw lazy, as far am concern, weda mata play or nt he is still d best player in chelsea

  29. Chelsea dont stand anywhere near City’s class and status and ‘Stylish GamePlay’.
