Mourinho: I won’t leave Chelsea

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has vowed not to quit the club after a rocky start to their Premier League title defence this season.

The Blues eased to the league crown last season and Mourinho was rewarded with a new four-year contract in August.

However, Chelsea have already lost two games this season, winning one and drawing the other, piling the pressure on the Portuguese tactician.

Mourinho, though, has reiterated his desire to stay at Stamford Birdge and is confident that he will not be sacked by the club.

"Let's be objective, I don't want to leave the club, in any circumstances," he told reporters. "And the club doesn't want me to leave. I'm not going to walk away. The club is not going to sack me.

"Look, when I was here in 2007, I had two things in my mind. Go to Spain [with Real Madrid] and go to Italy [with Inter], just to give you an example. Today, I was in Spain and I was in Italy, I don't want to go back.

"I repeat – I stay until Mr Abramovich wants. I had a contract that expires in two years' time. And he gave me a contract that expires in four years' time. So it makes a difference.

"If somebody, anyone thinks that I walk, or I leave the job it's somebody that doesn't know [me]."
