Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is now the current boss of Italian side, Roma.

The Portuguese has started out life in Rome pretty well, and he’s aiming to win titles with the Italian capital club.

Mourinho boast of a rich CV as he has won the Champions League twice, with Inter and FC Porto, three Premier League titles with Chelsea, the La Liga with Real Madrid and two Scudetto with Inter Milan.

Mourinho is hailed as Chelsea’s greatest manager so far, and despite all his achievements, Mourinho believes he’s now a better manager with more passion for the game.

“I feel more like a coach today than 10 or 20 years ago,” Mourinho told Esquire Italia. “If a coach doesn’t improve it’s because he has lost the passion and has lost the mentality that helps him improve every day.

“It’s not a job where age is fundamental or the physical shape. It’s the opposite of the player. The experience can only make you better. I only think about the next match.

“All the games I have played and all the trophies I have won, those are in my pocket, and I will have time to look at them when I’m done. Now, I only want to think about the next game.”

The Giallorossi are fourth in Serie A with 15 points from seven games under Mourinho, and Mourinho is aiming to win titles with the Giallorossi.

“I want to give titles to the club, because a club lives on titles, the titles increase the passion of the fans,” Mourinho added. “I understood that the love for Roma goes beyond trophies, it’s an eternal passion.

“But the win is missing, and we are constructing a project to arrive. If we arrive with me, it would be perfect. If not, it will be beautiful to contribute to the construction of the future, everyone’s dream.”
