Jose Mourinho, the self titled 'Special One', has warned that he may not be able to bring Chelsea instant success after an inconsistent start to the season.
Chelsea experienced a revolution when Mourinho first appeared and gave his magic touch but this second coming to Stamford Bridge has left a lot to be desired.
The Chelsea supporters who believe that just the mere presence of Mourinho will spark a return to the success the team experienced in 2004/06 have been told by the Portuguese boss that him being back will not necessarily trigger instant success for the Blues.
"No this is not 2004 all over again," said Mourinho "This team has a different profile and we are not unbeatable. I came here to work with time, to develop the players and play the best they and we can."
Mourinho highlighted that one of the big differences in today's Chelsea squad and that was the absence of Blues favourite, Didier Drogba.
He added: “Drogba made his history in here and Drogba is gone. Now there is no Drogba. I enjoyed that period of my career but that period has gone. There is no way back".
Mourinho will be aiming to launch a second assault on the Premier League but the Chelsea faithful will have to be 100 percent behind the Blues boss as success may not come as easy as it did with his first undeniable successful spell at the club in 2004.
“We have a different profile of player and we have to play according to the qualities of these players. We are not unbeatable."
Mourinho went on to say: "We have to be effective, be adult and not naive. We have to transform the beautiful football we played into goals."
It is the Premier League that Mourinho was brought back to regain, however.
Early indicators and performances from Chelsea suggest it is going to be more challenging this time around.
