Jose Mourinho insists he has no intention of walking out on his job as Chelsea manager.
Over the past two months, the Portuguese’s future has been the subject of intense speculation, with reports of a deteriorating relationship with the club’s owner Roman Abramovich.
However, speaking ahead of Chelsea’s Carling Cup final with Arsenal, Mourinho says that he will see out his contract at Stamford Bridge – provided the club don’t sack him.
“Do you want to believe in what you read, or believe in what I tell you?” said Mourinho on Sky Sports News.
“The only thing I can tell you is there are only two ways for me to leave Chelsea.
“One way is in June 2010 – I finish my contract. If the club doesn’t give me a new one, it’s the end of my contract and I’m out.
“The second way is for Chelsea to sack me because there is not a third way.
“The way of a manager who decides to leave and walks away – no chance.
“I would never do this to the Chelsea supporters – no chance.”
