However, despite believing English fans haven’t missed him, the Portuguese tactician admitted that he loves it in England.
The Special One, speaking at a Barclays community event, said: “I don’t think the Premier League, or the country, missed me.
“The country is too strong in relation to football, and the Premier League is too strong to miss somebody. It’s not a question of ‘missing’. But it’s certainly a question of me loving it here and people know that.”
Mourinho has had a mixed start to his second spell in charge at Chelsea with the club currently sitting in third place in the Premier League.
And the 50-year-old has also insisted that he enjoys the atmosphere from both home and away fans in England.
The Blues boss continued by saying: “I enjoy playing at home, feeling the Chelsea fans’ passion, that they are happy to have me on their side; but I also enjoy playing away and feeling the opponents support their own team, giving me that ‘hostility’. It’s a ‘pure hostility’. It’s not aggressive.”
Mourinho will enjoy a home match this weekend as his side take on Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge as they go in search of another three points.
