Jose Mourinho: I will never be able to match ex-Man United boss
Jose Mourinho insists that he will never be able to match Sir Alex Ferguson's tally of 13 Premier League titles
Jose Mourinho insists that he has “no chance” of being able to match Sir Alex Ferguson’s feat of winning 13 Premier League titles during his career.
The Portuguese coach celebrated guiding Chelsea to the top-flight title on Sunday as he notched up his third Premier League triumph as Blues boss.
Ferguson was 51 years old when he guided Manchester United to his first Premier League title back in the 1992-93 season.
And despite Mourinho being 52 years old and already having three titles to his name, the former Real Madrid coach insists that he will not be able to surpass the Scot’s tally of top-flight medals.
“I have a long way to go, but Sir Alex left the bar in an impossible position for anyone. I cannot win 13 Premier Leagues,” Mourinho told BT Sport.
“I can win 13 championships. I can. I have eight, I think I can go to 13. But 13 Premier Leagues, no, no chance.”
Mourinho has won two league titles with Porto, two with Inter Milan and one with Real Madrid, plus his three with Chelsea.
Chelsea, who are 13 points clear at the top of the table, have now won four Premier League titles since Roman Abramovich bought the club back in 2003.
The west London side take on Liverpool, West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland in their remaining three games of the season.
