Jose Mourinho vows to bring attractive football to Chelsea

Jose Mourinho insists that he is aiming to make Chelsea fans “happy” by getting his team playing attractive football.
The Portuguese coach has returned to Stamford Bridge for a second spell after signing a four-year deal with the club that he led to back-to-back Premier League titles in 2005 and 2006.
Mourinho’s men began pre-season training on Monday as the 50-year-old kicks off his second stint in west London ahead of the 2013-14 campaign.
And the former Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss, who has the likes of Eden Hazard and Juan Mata at his disposal, is keen to get his team playing with a certain amount of attacking flair.
“I want to make the Chelsea fans happy – by results, by our playing style, by the mentality and the personality of the team,” Mourinho told the Sun.
“They have to know that we always give everything. I know from my record at Chelsea, also at Inter and Madrid, that I made many decisions that helped my teams.
“If I gamble with a very risky decision, it can go the wrong way. How many times did I play here with three defenders?
“I remember against West Ham [in April 2006] we were losing 1-0 and we were playing with 10 men after Maniche got a red card early in the game. I still gambled because I wanted to win with 10 men — and we did win, 4-1.”
