Jose Mourinho: My achievements are historic

Published 1 Comments

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has heaped praise on his own achievements, while hitting back at critics who claim his teams play too defensively.

The Portuguese coach - who has managed Porto, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea - has won league titles in every country he's managed, breaking several long-standing records along the way.

"My teams are great teams." Mourinho commented. "My teams are the ones with all the goal records. I am the champion of the League of Records. That is my place in history."

Mourinho went on to cite his three-year spell at Real Madrid, who he won the Primera Liga title with in 2012, as a particularly successful period in his managerial career.

And he also mentioned Chelsea, who he won back-to-back Premier League titles with during his first spell at Stamford Bridge, winning the 2005 title with a record-breaking 95 points.

But despite this, Mourinho's sides have often drawn criticism for their overly defensive and sometimes cynical tactics.

"Who is the manager of the best Real Madrid team in history? That is me," the 50-year-old continued. "One hundred points, 121 goals, champion against the best Barcelona there ever has been. I am the one.

"Real Madrid was a defensive team? We scored 121 goals and got 100 points. My Chelsea was defensive? But they still have the Premier League points record.

"Sometimes a lie that is repeated a lot fools people into thinking it is true. Are my teams attacking? They are built to win. You have to be dominant to win more than not so that is what my teams try to be."

Mourinho went on to reveal that his primary aim is to win the Premier League with Chelsea again.

"Each of the leagues I have worked in are different," he added. "That helps you grow up. Experience is important. What I want now is to repeat a league I have won before."
