New Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas is refusing to draw comparisons between himself and Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho won two league titles, two league cups and the FA Cup during his three-year spell at Stamford Bridge, following a glittering spell with Porto which ended with victory in the Champions League final in 2004.
Villas-Boas meanwhile joins The Blues after winning four trophies in his season as manager of Porto, leading to comparisons between the two Portuguese managers.
But Villas-Boas says: "I think there is no way you can avoid comparison, it is something that is the interest of the media. I didn't take the Porto job nor the Chelsea job because Jose made the same steps.
"They are two of the most sought-after clubs in the world and in the end I had the opportunity and was able to make them find something in me that they thought would continue their route to success.
"Coaching was not a kind of obsession [for me] and neither did I use Jose as the way to arrive into this path, it was something that happened naturally."
The 33-year-old becomes the youngster manager in the Premier Legaue and replaces Carlo Ancelotti, who was sacked at the end of last season following a trophy-less campaign.
