Yaya Toure insists he is not “scared” of Jose Mourinho following the Portuguese coach’s return to Chelsea.

The 50-year-old signed a four-year deal at Stamford Bridge last month as he returned to the club that he led to six major trophies between 2004 and 2007.

But the Manchester City midfielder insists he is not intimidated by the arrival of the former Real Madrid boss in west London and is looking forward to coming up against his team.

“I am not scared of him,” Toure told Goal. “In fact, I look forward to playing against him. That is how football is. You need to be brave and take all the challenges that come.”

Looking ahead to the new season, the Ivory coast international added: “Looking at our preparations and with the new manager on board, I am confident that things will be better [next season].”

“There are a lot of signings that the club has made and I am sure that will have a positive impact on the side.”
