Real Madrid were crowned as La Liga champions on Wednesday and the Portuguese mentor believes that La Liga was the hardest out of all his accomplishments.
Mourinho is considered to be one of the most accomplished managers in the world of football. The Portuguese manager has won the domestic league titles in 4 different countries after last night, winning the league in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain.
After winning the league with Real Madrid, Jose Mourinho did not shy away from admitting the fact that winning the Spanish La Liga was the hardest out of all the leagues.
When Mourinho joined Real Madrid at the start of last season, he was given a stern task as Josep Guardiola was at the helm of affairs at the Nou Camp.
The Catalan coach won six trophies in his first season with Barcelona and was able to win the league in the next season as well.
With Mourinho coming on to join Los Blancos, he was expected to give Guardiola a tough competition, but a 5-0 thrashing at the Nou Camp was enough to show the Portuguese coach that it is not going to be easy for him to win La Liga.
However, it wasn’t Guardiola who became the first person to beat Mourinho at home since his time at Chelsea. Sporting Gijon, a Spanish side, were the first to beat the Portuguese mentor at home.
Mourinho has won two Portuguese league titles, two English Premier League titles, two Italian Serie A titles, and one La Liga title. However, Mourinho admitted that winning the Spanish league was the hardest for him.
“I have previously won titles in Portugal, England and Italy, but this one in Spain is the hardest title so far. And I have even won titles on the last match day in the past. They didn’t give us any present.”
“We have played football of the highest quality. It’s time to celebrate now. These players deserve it. The entire country has seen it and nobody will argue that we don’t deserve the title.”
“I dedicate this title to anyone who has helped us achieve this, and who has suffered.”
Real Madrid won 0-3 against Athletic Bilbao last night, which makes them the Spanish La Liga champions of this season.
