LONDON (AFP) - Jose Mourinho says he has returned to Chelsea because he wants to leave a long-lasting legacy for the first time in his managerial career.

The 50-year-old Portuguese has achieved success wherever he has coached, but he has never remained with a club longer than the three years and three months he spent at Chelsea in his first spell between 2004 and 2007.

He returns to Stamford Bridge, on a four-year contract, having won a further eight trophies with Inter Milan and Real Madrid, but says he now wants to sow the seeds of long-term success.

"You need stability for identity, and I think identity becomes more important in football," he told reporters after being officially presented to the media on Monday.
