Created on Jun. 10, 2013 11:59 AM EST

Jose Mourinho held his first press conference since returning to Chelsea on Monday, speaking to an unsurprisingly packed room of reporters.

Mourinho, who dubbed himself "the happy one", has signed a four-year deal at Stamford Bridge, and will hope to emulate the success he enjoyed during his first spell at the London club.

The Portuguese won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and two League Cups between 2004 and 2007, marking himself out as the most successful manager in the club's history.

Here, we look at the other numbers which have defined the 50-year-old's relationship with Chelsea.

2 – Mourinho delivered back-to-back Premier League titles at Chelsea, the first time the club had been crowned top-flight champions in 50 years. 
6 – In his three years at Chelsea between 2004 and 2007, Mourinho won six pieces of silverware in total, the Premier League and League Cup twice apiece, and the FA Cup and Community Shield.
