Jose Mourinho says he could have won more titles than Pep Guardiola

Jose Mourinho has admitted that he would have won more trophies than Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola if he had stayed for a longer time in some of his former clubs.

Since the Portuguese started his managerial career, he has won 25 titles and has also been out of coaching job since he was sacked at Manchester United in December 2018. Recently, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola took his trophy haul to 26 after winning the 2018/19 Premier League title with his side.

Guardiola can add a 27th trophy to his collection if his side beat Watford in the FA Cup final which takes place at Wembley on May 18. And when it was put to him that Guardiola had now passed his tally with his latest Premier League title win, Mourinho claimed that he would have had more trophies to his name had he not moved clubs.

“When I won the Champions League with Porto and Inter, if I had stayed the following season, I would have played the European Super Cup, the Club World Cup, the national Super Cups, and I would have had 31 titles.

“Maybe I’m not so focused on the numbers and this reminds me that I’m there with 25 titles,” Mourinho told L’Equipe.

Earlier,AbegTV had reported how ex Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho reportedly rejected offers to become the new manager of Italian side Roma.

Jose Mourinho has been out of coaching job since he was sacked at Manchester United in December 2018 after losing against Liverpool. He was tipped to make a return to Real Madrid recently, but Los Blancos’ chiefs ignored the Portuguese by hiring Frenchman Zinedine Zidane.
