The Guardian newspaper takes a look at the new "calm humble and relaxed" Jose. "Welcome... the Happy One" the back page announces as he declares himself thrilled to be back in the Premier League after leading Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

The Daily Star's back page features a shot of Mourinho holding up a Blues jersey, but ominously noted the Portuguese tactician's warning to club captain John Terry.

Following on in a similar vein, the Daily Mail states there are "no special ones" at Chelsea anymore, as Mourinho insists players who worked under him in his last stint at Stamford Bridge will not be treated differently to newcomers.

The Times, meanwhile, sees Mourinho stating that the Chelsea job was the special one for him. After previously being linked to Manchester United and City jobs, the former Real Madrid boss says "I am where I want to be. You tell me now every job in the football world at this table, and I would choose my job."
