Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has said he’s above comparing himself with other managers. He insists that there are only a few other managers who can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with him.
The 52-year old who once called himself the ‘special one’ recently witnessed his side crashing out of the Champions league to Paris st-Germain, and he insists winning the champions league for the third time with a third club is not his life’s assignment. We hear you Mou, we do.
He cited his silverware accolades as reasons why he can not be compared with just any manager. The proud one, maybe?
“My happiness, first of all, is when I compare myself with others, I see just a few that are with me in terms of success and the others I see a huge difference and a huge distance,” Mourinho said.
“I have lots of respect for all of them but, in the Premier League, who is European champion? Me and Louis van Gaal. How many won the Premier League twice or more than twice? Me and Arsene Wenger.
“How many won every competition in this country? Community Shield, Capital One Cup, FA Cup, Premier League? In Europe, how many won seven league titles? How many won two Champions Leagues? Carlo Ancelotti won three and Van Gaal and Pep Guardiola won two.
“I’m not content with that but I think people worry about me too much. They don’t know what my happiness is.
“What makes me feel special is that I am above all of this. You think I care about some bull**** I read? I don’t care.”
