Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes that he has returned to Stamford Bridge a 'better' coach after his experience in Spain and Italy.
Mourinho brought an end to widespread speculation and rejoined Chelsea during the summer after experiencing problems during the 2012-13 campaign with Real Madrid.
The 'special one' broke the club's long-standing trophy drought during his first stint, winning the Premier League title in 2004 before repeating the feat the following season as well as adding two League Cups and an FA Cup trophy.
The Portuguese has gone on to enjoy a successful spell with Inter Milan, collecting a Champions League title as well as winning Serie A, and he toppled Barcelona to clinch the La Liga title during his time with the Spanish side.
Mourinho said: "I think I am better now because my job is the kind of job where experience means a lot.
"After Chelsea I went around Europe and had two years in Italy, three years in Spain, so I have more football culture than I did before.
"So I think I am in better condition than before. Some more white hairs, in my case, is a good sign, because it shows I learn more."
