Mourhino is now in the building ...

Jose Mourhino must feel like a rock star today.

The Blues manager was mobbed by Ghanian fans as he arrived in the country for a five-day visit in conjunction with Right to Play, Chelsea's global charity sponsor.

According to the BBC, it took the Special One over an hour to leave the Kotoka International Airport in Accra on Tuesday night.

"I'm thrilled to be here for the charity, as my life is all about supporting the less privileged," Mourhino said.

"It's also great to come to the country of Essien, who is a very important for us," Mourinho added, talking about Michael Essien, Ghanian midfielder-extraordinaire.

"It is a good feeling to come to Africa as I believe I am part of the continent because my wife comes from Angola.

"I hope that this visit can bring a lot of hope of many under-privileged children not only in Ghana and Africa but across the world."

During his trip Mourinho is expected to conduct training sessions for children in Accra and Tamale.

He will also hold coaching demonstrations for the Right To Play coaches who are integral to the charity's purpose of raising awareness about disease, war and poverty through sport.
