Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that he has no regrets following his three toxic years at Real Madrid.
The 'Special One' was involved in a series of power struggles at the Bernabeu during his helm.
But the Portuguese boss insists that he will not look back at his time with Los Blancos with regret by quoting the infamous Frank Sinatra.
He told reporters: “It’s not worth it to regret anything. It’s terminated, it’s finished.
“I respect that clubs criticise me but, as Frank Sinatra once said, ‘I did it my way’.”
The re-appointed Chelsea boss had a series of bust-ups during his time at the Spanish capital. In his first season he had a disagreement with technical director and club legend Jorge Valdano which resulted in the latter being ousted.
But more recently, Mourinho had fall-outs with captains Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos, as well as £80million star man Cristiano Ronaldo. Karim Benzema, Mesut Ozil and Pepe are also reported to have fallen out with Mourinho.
The 50-year old knew that he had to leave the Spanish giants due to the on-going problems.
“I left because I think it’s the best for me and the actual situation at the club," he said.
“If I started next season, I would start with a series of problems that are dragging on.
“On Saturday, you had the maximum example of the dynamic and the objective of those problems."
Mourinho managed to win La Liga once during his three years in Spain meaning he has now won the league in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain.
Despite the troubles the manager has experienced at Madrid, Mourinho insists that he's glad he took over at Los Blancos.
He added: "I carry with me the pride of being part of Real Madrid. I came exactly because I thought that my career would have no sense if I had passed up on this monster — and I mean that in a positive sense.
“If you ask me if I would have come knowing what happened in those three years, I still would have come.
"Without coming here I could never say that I won the three most important leagues in the football world.”
Mourinho has been re-appointed at Chelsea manager six years after leaving Stamford Bridge. He won the Premier League twice in his first two seasons before leaving the club after a mutual agreement with Roman Abramovich.
