Mourinho taunts Chelsea

MOST COMMENTED

A week before Inter Milan faces Chelsea in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League,  Inter coach Jose Mourinho taunted his old team, with which Mourinho won two EPL titles, the FA Cup and two League Cups. Since Mourinho was sacked, Chelsea has one just one trophy, last season's FA Cup.

"You should have stuck with me if you wanted to win more titles," Mourinho said. "Chelsea has suffered in the last two years, and it's no coincidence that their decline happened after I left. We had a unique relationship as a manager, players and fans, and when you break that, it's not easy to fix. They've had a lot of coaches since and maybe some didn't have the mentality for the club. Maybe they tried to change too much of what we put in place.

"I knew there was no time for a long-term plan with the owner they have at Stamford Bridge. You must win the title in your first season or say bye-bye. I gave them what they needed but I always knew it wasn't a job that would last forever. Maybe they would've been better off sticking with me than changing manager when they did."

Of the four managers to succeed him, Avram Grant, Luiz Felipe Scolari, Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti, only Hiddink brought a title home (the FA Cup). As for the current Chelsea boss, Mourinho said, “Ancelotti is no friend of mine and this won't change."
