Mourinho in Champions League claim

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho claims he would have won the Champions League for Chelsea had he been allowed to see out his contract at Stamford Bridge.

The self-styled 'Special One' left his role as Blues boss in September 2007, just over three years after he started his trophy-laden spell in charge in which time he led Chelsea to the Champions League semi-finals, where they lost both times to Liverpool.

He told the News of the World: "We'd won absolutely everything apart from the Champions League. But people always want more - and at Chelsea that was the Champions League. I would have won it with Chelsea."

He added: "While I was at Chelsea we did everything but win the Champions League. We won all the other big, big trophies.

"There was the first League title for Chelsea in 50 years and the next year we were champions again.

"We won the first FA Cup at the new Wembley, beating Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United. And two Carling Cups.

"My contract was until 2011, so I would have been there for seven years. It's enough time."
