London, Feb 19 (ANI): Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to shock English football again by dumping the Blues out of the Champions League.
Mourinho is determined to cause an upset and the Inter Milan coach is typically confident, saying English clubs are not as good as they think.
"It's difficult for the English to hear some things... but not everything in English football is perfect. There are bad things, too - in England teams have to be more tactical and less emotional," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
"So while it is a tough draw for us, it is also a tough draw for Chelsea - and we will be going for it, hat's for sure," Mourinho said.
Mourinho is relishing the challenge and takes inspiration from his trophy-winning time at Chelsea when he made the Blues the No 1 side in the land.
He recalls how the sceptics predicted he would find life tough in the Premier League when he arrived in west London in 2004.
"Everyone said English football was so special that it was impossible for someone to arrive and win in their first year. But I arrived, won, and turned all that around. That caused an impression. It went down in history.
"But some English were pained because 'the Portuguese' arrived and cleaned up in an instant, hurting their pride," Mourinho added. (ANI)
