Porto manager Andre Villas-Boas has dismissed talk of being compared to Jose Mourinho in the wake of speculation linking him with Chelsea.

The Portuguese manager has made waves across Europe as he took Porto to the league title in record breaking fashion with the most wins, the most points and the most consecutive wins in the Primeira Liga's history.

Such has been his impact, and with Chelsea looking to perhaps replace Carlo Ancelotti this summer, that Villas-Boas has been linked with a move to the club and has been compared to former Porto manager, Jose Mourinho.

“People think I am the next one but I am not the next one,” he says.

“I am a normal coach who benefits from having top players and one day I will not benefit from having this type of talent. I am not the Special One. Maybe, then, I will be The S--- One.


“Porto did not choose me because Jose was here before and neither did I choose Porto because Jose was here before.

“It is just a coincidence."

With Chelsea expected to lose out to Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League title race, the 33-year-old is being tipped as a potential replacement, after the success Mourinho had at the club during the last decade.

He too had success at Porto, winning the Champions League in 2004 and moving to Stamford Bridge where he secured the club's first league title in 50 years.

As well as Villas-Boas, Chelsea have been linked with Guus Hiddink, Marco van Basten and Didier Deschamps.
