The Portuguese tactician, has admitted that he did not like the way the Blues were playing before he arrived at the club for his second tenure and that is why be bought players that he thought will fit into the system he wants to create.
“I didn’t like the way Chelsea were playing in the last couple of years. The club doesn’t like it. We want to change,” Mourinho told reporters.
“We have players with profile to change. We want a different style. The past is history. People ask if I miss Didier but that’s history, a fantastic history but we want to change and we’re going to change.
“The easiest thing for a new manager is to arrive and not to change, to go in the same direction, or keep something and buy a couple of players better than you had previously. The dynamic is one where everyone feels the need to do something different. There is a period where people will ask questions if results are not so good.”
Turning his focus to the West London derby against Fulham on Saturday, Mourinho did not mince words in declaring that his troops must take all three points.
He said: “We need to win against Fulham but if someone expects me to play with nine behind the ball waiting for Fulham to make a mistake, to score on the counter and go home happy with three points I’m not going in that direction.
“I don’t want a low block with long balls to a only striker, I don’t want central defenders in midfield. We must have better results. We are the not the kind of club to wait years for a team. Football is not magic. Tomorrow maybe we win 3-0 and it becomes perfect. Maybe we lose and it becomes a big story.”
