Mourinho: Call Me "The Only One"
The Portuguese, who dubbed himself “the Special One” during his time with in England, guided Inter Milan and Chelsea to the Serie A and Premiership titles respectively, before taking Real to the Spanish La Liga crown last term.
“Like me or not, 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 said.
Mourinho added nowadays he focussed less on himself and more about team success, taking huge joy out of his achievements in the world’s top three leagues.
“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,” he said.
“That is what entices me more and more, instead of pursuing individual goals.”
