Mourinho distances himself from Man United links, and doesn't 'feel free'

Mourinho Press Conference Still

Jose Mourinho addressed the media ahead of Sunday's trip to Liverpool in the Premier League

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has distanced himself from any speculation linking him with the Manchester United job, saying he will stay at Stamford Bridge for as long as the club wants him to.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s clash with Liverpool at Anfield, Mourinho said: “How can somebody think about it? I left Real Madrid to come to Chelsea specifically. I signed a four-year contract with Chelsea. I told Chelsea they never have to worry about me because I don't want to leave. I stay as long as the club wants me to stay."

The Blues boss was clearly not in the best of moods following his FA charge following his post-match comments after last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Sunderland at Stamford Bridge.

He said: "Every team I speak there is a consequence. I don't feel free at all. If you want a better press conference speak with the FA."

After the 0-0 draw in the first leg of their semi-final with Atletico Madrid, the Portuguese coach hinted that he may make several changes at Anfield on Sunday, with some suggestions the team will be ‘weakened’ but Mourinho has said the team selection is private.

“If we are not helped to try to follow our dreams and objectives, one more reason for us to try to think about us and only about us.

“You wait for Sunday and Sunday you will know our team.

“I want to try to win, that it is the simple and objective answer. No-one goes into a game to lose."

The Chelsea boss confirmed that John Terry will miss out on Sunday, and in the return leg of their semi-final of the Champions League. He also confirmed that Eden Hazard won’t be fit for Sunday, and is a doubt for the midweek clash against Atletico Madrid.
