Come-backing Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho announced his return to the Premier League in typical style last night by telling the Manchester clubs their recent league titles are worthless, according to Britain’s The Express. The paper said:

Mourinho, who won back-to-back championships at Chelsea in 2005 and 2006, begins his second stint in charge at home against Hull tomorrow.

He said: “Do you think United won the league last year because they were an unbelievable team? I don’t. The other contenders didn’t have a good season. The year before, when City won, were they an extraordinary team? I don’t think so. Other teams made so many mistakes.

“Years ago, you had Arsenal who were champions without a single defeat, you had a Chelsea team with a points record.

“The champions in other seasons were magnificent. In the past two seasons, no.”

And Mourinho is adamant his side can win that title back – especially if a new £28 million bid for Wayne Rooney is successful this week.

“We can win the championship,” he said.
