Mourinho want recognition after leading Spurs to Carabao Cup final last season
Jose Mourinho claims he has won ’25 and half major trophies’ in his managerial career with the half coming from guiding Tottenham to last season’s Carabao Cup final.
Tottenham Hotspurs sacked the Portuguese tactician just six days before the final showdown against Man City, a tie Spurs lost 1-0 at the Wembley Stadium.
Mourinho has won 25 major honours in his illustrious career at Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Manchester United.
And after being denied to opportunity to clinch a title with Spurs following his dismissal just six days to the Carabao Cup final.
Speaking to The Sun, Mourinho said: “So if you want me to be proactive now you can ask me, ‘how many trophies have you won in your career?’ I’ll tell you 25 and a half. The half is the final that I didn’t play with Tottenham.
“You ask the guys who played lots of finals and everybody will tell you, ‘to play a final is a dream’ and it doesn’t matter if it is the first final or number 20 or number 50, a final is always a dream.
“A Wembley final is more than a dream, I played the first on the new Wembley and every time I go there, it’s more than a dream and to have a chance to win a trophy with a club that doesn’t have many of course was a double dream.
“I am the kind of guy that when I close the door of a club, I move and I just wish good to people, but in a funny way I would say I have 25 and a half titles because it’s something that marks my career which is not to play a final that I won the right to go there.”
