Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has had his name entered into the Guinness book of records for the upcoming year, honoured for setting five different records in the world of football management.
The Portuguese, one of the most divisive in the world of football, is certainly successful despite, perhaps because of, his eccentricity.
Chelsea announced the news on their website:
“Jose Mourinho has had his name entered into the 2016 version of the Guinness Book of Records.
To celebrate the honour, our manager was presented with unique framed certificates marking his achievements at Cobham recently.
Mourinho’s five managerial records in the latest edition of the famous and prestigious book are as follows:
Longest football unbeaten home run by a manager (nine years)
Most Champions League titles with different clubs (two)
Youngest manager to reach 100 Champions League matches (49 years 12 days)
Most points in a Premier League season (95)
Most games unbeaten at home in the Premier League (77)
Mourinho was pleased to be recognised by such an iconic publication.
“The fact they gave me the awards in a way that I can put them up in my office is nice,” he said.
“It’s something fun and as a kid you could never imagine that one day you would be in the Guinness Book of Records.
“You know me, these awards are for something I did in the past and obviously it’s nice, but for me what’s more important is what I can do in the future.”
