Jose Mourinho doesn't believe the Premier League have missed him during his time away from Chelsea, reports The Guardian

The Blues boss, who left Stamford Bridge in 2007, returned to the club earlier this summer but has insisted that English football is too strong to miss anybody. 

However, despite believing English fans haven't missed him, the Portuguese tactician admitted that he loves it in England. 

The Special One, speaking at a Barclays community event, said: "I don't think the Premier League, or the country, missed me.

"The country is too strong in relation to football, and the Premier League is too strong to miss somebody. It's not a question of 'missing'. But it's certainly a question of me loving it here and people know that."

Mourinho has had a mixed start to his second spell in charge at Chelsea with the club currently sitting in third place in the Premier League. 

And the 50-year-old has also insisted that he enjoys the atmosphere from both home and away fans in England. 

The Blues boss continued by saying: "I enjoy playing at home, feeling the Chelsea fans' passion, that they are happy to have me on their side; but I also enjoy playing away and feeling the opponents support their own team, giving me that 'hostility'. It's a 'pure hostility'. It's not aggressive."

Mourinho will enjoy a home match this weekend as his side take on Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge as they go in search of another three points.
