Not one to shy away from controversies, Real Madrid gaffer Jose Mourinho has emphatically declared, “I am the only one who won the world’s three most important leagues. So, maybe instead of the ‘Special One’, people should start calling me the ‘Only One”. Mourinho, 49, said this during an interview with Portuguese television channel SIC.
His notable achievements include winning the UEFA Champions League with Porto and later with Inter Milan. He has also won the La Liga title with Real Madrid of Spain, The Scudetto with Inter Milan of Italy and Barclays Premiere Leaugue title with Chelsea in his first season among other numerous titles won by the boastful Portuguese.
Nicknamed the ‘Special One’ after he arrived at Chelsea in 2004, the likeable Portuguese continued, “Things have been going well for me, thank God. I am focused on others much more these days. The pleasure of winning with Inter Milan was seeing a club which had not won for 50 years winning again. That is what entices me more and more, instead of pursuing individual goals.”
So when next you might want to address Mourinho, please do so with a little more respect by adding the “Only One”.
