It appears that Mourinho has taken a swipe at Bayern Munich manager and rival, Guardiola, after guiding Chelsea to their fourth premier league title.
Hazard’s headed rebound after his initial penalty was saved secured the title for Chelsea. This will be Mourinho’s eight domestic trophy in four different countries.
“For me, I’m not the smartest guy to choose countries and clubs. I could choose another club in another country where to be champion is easier,” said the newly crowned champion, in an apparent reference to Guardiola.
“I choose a club where I was happier before and a country where you are happy before. I took a risk. I am so, so happy because I won another Premier League title 10 years after [my first] in my second spell at the club.
“I was champion at every club I coached. I came to Inter, Real Madrid and Chelsea. Every title is important, to win the title in Spain with 100 points against the best Barcelona ever was a big achievement that I enjoyed so much.
“Maybe in the future I have to be smarter and choose another club in another country where everybody is champion,” he added. “Maybe I will go to a country where a kitman can be coach and win the title.
“Maybe I need to be smarter but I still enjoy these difficulties. I think I’m at the right place. I’m here until [Chelsea owner Roman] Abramovich tells me to go.”
I’ve been waiting for this from Mourinho though. He is not the kind of person who doesn’t talk or takes a dig at a fellow manager.
