Jose Mourinho insist his previous spells has all been a success ahead of his new adventure
Former Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho has rally behind his track record in the Premier League, insisting he has enjoyed considerable success after being officially unveiled as AS Roma manager.
The Portuguese tactician was relieved of his duties as Spurs manager in April just few days ahead of the club’s Carabao Cup final clash against Manchester City at Wembley.
However, weeks after leaving Tottenham, Jose Mourinho landed a new job, signing a three-year deal with Serie A club, AS Roma, marking his return to Italy having led Inter Milan to an unprecedented treble in 2010.
And eleven years after his famous success in Italy, the 58-year-old has prospered, guiding Real Madrid and Chelsea to La Liga and Premier League titles respectively as well as helping Manchester United win three trophies, the Community Shield, Carabao Cup and the Europa League.
Having had acrimonious departures from Chelsea, Man United and Spurs [Mourinho’s most recent sacking], Mourinho insist his over spell at those clubs has been successful.
Speaking at his first ever press conference as AS Roma boss Mourinho said:
“At my last three clubs I won the Premier League with Chelsea, I won three cups with Manchester United, I made it into the League Cup [Carabao Cup] final with Tottenham.
“We finished 12th the year before and then we came sixth and qualified for the Europa League. What is considered a disaster for me is something that other coaches have never achieved in their lifelime.”
Jose Mourinho is relishing the opportunity to get started at Roma.
“The next challenge is always the most important, this is the next challenge so it is the most important.”
