Andre Villas-Boas refused to repeat the hyperbole of mentor Jose Mourinho as he branded himself "the group one" during his first press conference as Chelsea boss on Wednesday morning.
Mourinho famously dubbed himself as the 'special one' when he was introduced to the media for the first time as Blues boss, but Villas-Boas, who worked under his Portuguese compatriot at Stamford Bridge, opted for a different approach.
When asked what title he would like the media to give him, he replied: "The title... I will wait for you guys to give it me when I am successful. I hope I am and you can give me a good title."
He added: "This is not a one-man show, this is about creating empathy, ambition and motivation in everybody.
"Maybe I should be called the group one as I want to group people together and be successful."
The 33-year-old also side-stepped questions about how he may look to take on established Premier League managers such as Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
"It's not just a question of me taking on Sir Alex, it's a top club like Chelsea challenging for the title," he said.
"We need to be up there from the beginning and it is not one man against the other, it's about trying to build something that can make us powerful, and help us threaten for the title as we have in the past."
