Mourinho eyes legacy with Chelsea
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho
When I'm dead, I hope Chelsea supporters will remember this guy was the coach

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he wants to establish the Blues as the dominant force in English football to confirm his place in the history books.

Mourinho has taken Chelsea to titles in his two seasons at Stamford Bridge.

"I'm in the history but I want more - for me, for Chelsea and, one day, for me not in Chelsea," he said in Chelsea FC: The Official Biography.

"If we can be champions three or four times in the next five years, it's an era where Chelsea are very powerful."

The success of Chelsea's Portuguese boss in the domestic game has made him a hero to the Stamford Bridge supporters and Mourinho wants to be remembered fondly in years to come.

"One day you have to stop because I want to or because Chelsea want me to but I am happy, I'm looking forward to the challenges," he added.

"I want to repeat what we have won and I want to win what we didn't.

"I hope in 60 years' time - so I hope I go to 100 - when I'm dead, Chelsea supporters will remember this guy was the coach.

"I always think about the future."

Mourinho said English football fans had a remarkable capacity to absorb the history of the sport.

"In England, people go a lot for the history. They remember Newcastle when Manchester United won the title in 1996; they remember Man Utd being second in December and finishing first.

"But history is to be changed. Because of the second title, we are not a Blackburn that was champion once, isolated, and after that is miles and miles away from it.

"Chelsea is not any more an isolated situation.

"I think if we can keep winning that is what can make the Chelsea family bigger and stronger - what Chelsea have to find now is the culture of victory where winning is normal."
