Tel Aviv:

Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho is In Israel to give his support to a new charity project that uses football to promote harmony between Israeli and Palestinian youngsters. On Monday, the Chelsea manager reflected on the difficulties he is currently facing with his job back in Britain. "I think, as I was saying, I have to go back, and don't change my personality, and don't change my principles. I have the principles, that I believe, as a manager, and I don't run away from it," Mourinho said. Mourinho also talked about the difference between his own role at Chelsea, and that of the people who control the finances of the club. "I think that if they are involved in the training process, we would be bottom of the league. If I was involved in their business, they would be bankrupt. So, we have a very good relationship, we are working for the same goal," he added. Jose Mourinho is in Israel as a guest of Israeli deputy Prime Minister Shimon Peres. The Chelsea coach is lending his backing to a project entitled 'Centre of Peace', which aims to use football to help foster cooperation between young Israelis and Palestinians. (AP)
