Madrid, June 1(ANI): New Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has said that his main objective at Bernabeu is to secure the first Champions League success since 2002.

Mourinho was named Real Madrid's ninth manager in just six years, signing a four-year contract to take over from Manuel Pellegrini, who was sacked last week.

"I won the Champions League during my second years at Porto and Inter Milan. I reached the semi-finals twice with Chelsea. I believe it is the top championship, the hardest of all. This is why my main objective is to win," The Mirror quoted Mourinho, as having told realmadrid.com.

Real Madrid has missed out on the domestic league title in each of the last two seasons to Barcelona.

They also failed to reach this year's Champions League final held at their own ground, which proved to be the biggest disappointment for the club and its fans.

The 47-year-old further said that he would give his best and try to accomplish his dream of being the first man to win the Champions League with three different clubs.

"The magnitude of this club doesn't frighten me. It won't be an easy challenge, but I am anxious to take it on. I am very excited to begin working here," Mourinho said.

"With all due respect to the current squad, I would like to bring two or three players who can adapt to my work philosophy. I don't want people to feel any pressure. I want them to be calm. I don't want people to go crazy and spend too much money," he added. (ANI)
