Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho claims he is committed to the club for the long haul and has the ambition of his second tenure at Stamford Bridge exceeding a decade in length.

The Portuguese returned to west London in the summer after leaving Real Madrid, with his departure from the Santiago Bernabeu representing a third change of job in five-and-a-half years.

Mourinho, though, hopes that a move back to Chelsea represents a change in his career path, with the 50-year-old finally ready to stay in one position for a lengthy period.

After a potential 12 years as Chelsea boss Mourinho then has his sights set on management at international level - preferably with Portugal - but he will not rule out potentially leading England to the World Cup.

"Realistically I hope at the end of those four years we sit, analyse the situation and that will be the point where we both – club and me – are happy to carry on or happy to separate," Mourinho told reporters with regards to his current Chelsea contract.

"But I would like [to stay for], say, 12 years. I'm 51 next month. I'd say 12 years, and then two to go to a World Cup with a national team. I would prefer the Portuguese national team. England second [choice], yes."

Chelsea, meanwhile, meet Arsenal on Monday night with an opportunity to climb above the Gunners and level with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.

The Blues will be unable to claim outright lead given their inferior goal difference to Liverpool, but can ensure they reach Christmas day with the same points tally as the leaders.
