Jose Mourinho is rated as the greatest manager to have managed Chelsea, after two successful spells at the club that saw him win three Premier League titles.

Mourinho was hailed as the special one during his time at Stamford Bridge, as he had a close affinity with the Chelsea fans.

Surprisingly, Mourinho has described his spell in charge of Real Madrid as “the best memory” of his managerial career so far.

The Portuguese had a troubled end to his Real Madrid career, and chose to rather return to Chelsea which he described as home at the time.

Mourinho had a three-year spell at Real Madrid, where he helped the team to one La Liga title and one Copa del Rey, and he has described it as “the best memory” of his managerial career so far.

Speaking to Portuguese TV channel 11, the 56-year-old said: “Real Madrid was my best experience because of what I learned as a coach, as a man, from the lessons I took in my career and in my life. It’s the best memory of my career, it was fantastic.

“What they asked me to do at Real Madrid suited my nature. They told me that we had the best team in the world on the other side, that they were crushing us, and we had to reverse the situation.”

The Spanish Football Podcast shared more from Mourinho’s interview as he also said: “I came to Spain because I wanted to be the first to win the English league, the Italian league and the Spanish league.

“We won at Camp Nou and then did it mathematically at San Mamés. That was my best moment in Spanish football.”
