Inter Milan full of confidence after win over Chelsea

Mourinho is set to make his emotional return to Stamford Bridge on March 16 for the second leg.

“We can go there with a legitimate ambition to go through,” he said.

“The most important thing is the result and we are ahead.

“It’s not obviously the result which ends the tie, it’s not 3-0 or 4-0, but no team is leading by two goals at this stage of the Champions League.”

“I have to control my emotions and have to be professional like I was today,” he added.

“In the tunnel, it is not a normal game for me – and it is not for them either – but when the game starts, it becomes normal for them and for me; they want to win and I want to win.

“At Stamford Bridge, I don’t expect anything other than people to be glad to have me back as we worked so well together.

“This time I will go back to a different dressing room, a different dugout and but I know normally Mourinho is lucky at Stamford Bridge.”
