Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed his proudest moment as manager at Stamford Bridge.

The Portuguese tactician has enjoyed some fantastic successes during two stints with the Blues, although Champions League glory has so far eluded 'the Special One' on the King's Road.

First title

That doesn't detract from some of the other achievements though, and it's the first title won under Roman Abramovich which sticks in the memory of one of modern football's greatest managers.

“As Chelsea manager, I think it was the first Premier League title we won in 2004/05,” he told Clare Balding in an interview to be aired on BT Sport on Christmas Day.

“I’m not the kind of guy that wants to celebrate a lot, the title, because I always believe that’s not the last one.”

Of the other notable Chelsea achievements on Mourinho's record, two League Cups, an FA Cup and another Premier League title in 2005/06 stand out.

The former Porto and Real Madrid boss also went 77 games unbeaten at Stamford Bridge before the loss to Sunderland at the end of last season.

Champions League chance

Mourinho must believe that his current Chelsea side can make history, with the chance of a 'quadruple' still available. The main focus will remain the league though, as well as the Champions League ahead of a last 16 showdown against Paris Saint-Germain.

Jose Mourinho was speaking to Clare Balding as part of a BT Sport Christmas Day special.
