Jose Mourinho is in a confident mood ahead of on his return to Chelsea, insisting he does not lose at Stamford Bridge.
The Inter coach enjoyed three successful years in charge of the Blues between 2004 and 2007, and his reign was built on the back of a formidable home record.
Mourinho is set to return to west London on Tuesday with his current club, with the Italians looking to defend a narrow 2-1 lead from the first leg of their Champions League clash.
“Everybody knows Mourinho doesn’t lose at Stamford Bridge,” he said.
“My record is unbeatable. It is amazing – we were so strong for such a long time.”
While Mourinho is keen to drag up the past ahead of the crunch clash, Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack insists the Portuguese coach is ‘history’.
“Jose won two League titles, that is why he is so popular here,” said Ballack.
“But that is history and now we have a new coach, with new players.
“This competition is the one we couldn’t win until now. That is why we are so hungry.”
