José Mourinho Trophies: When it comes to the world of soccer management, few names can stir up as much passion and controversy as José Mourinho. Known for his bold pronouncements, unparalleled tactical acumen, and his uncanny ability to win trophies wherever he goes, Mourinho has become a figure who cannot be ignored.

This blog post delves into the impressive list of trophies that ‘The Special One’ has earned over his storied career.

The Early Days

Mourinho’s illustrious career began at Benfica, but it was at Porto where he first made his mark on the international stage. In a remarkable two-year spell from 2002 to 2004, Mourinho guided Porto to an impressive haul of trophies.

The crowning jewel was undoubtedly the UEFA Champions League victory in 2004, but before that, he had already captured the UEFA Cup (2003), Primeira Liga twice (2003, 2004), Taça de Portugal (2003), and Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira (2003).

The extraordinary success in such a short time made the soccer world take notice, and Mourinho’s journey had just begun.

The Chelsea Era

Following his success at Porto, Mourinho moved to Chelsea in 2004, famously declaring himself as ‘The Special One.’ His time at Chelsea was characterized by a strong, defensively-minded team that was incredibly hard to beat. Over his two spells at Chelsea (2004-2007 and 2013-2015),

Mourinho won three Premier League titles (2005, 2006, 2015), an FA Cup (2007), three League Cups (2005, 2007, 2015), and a Community Shield (2005). His influence transformed Chelsea into a dominant force in English soccer.

The Inter Milan Chapter

Mourinho then took his talents to Italy, where he managed Inter Milan from 2008 to 2010. His tenure was marked by a historic ‘Treble’ win in 2010 when Inter claimed the Serie A, Coppa Italia, and the UEFA Champions League, becoming the first Italian club ever to do so. Additionally, Mourinho won the Serie A title in 2009 and the Supercoppa Italiana in 2008.

The Real Madrid Stint

In 2010, Mourinho moved to Real Madrid, marking his entry into Spanish soccer. While his tenure was fraught with controversy, his achievements were significant. The pinnacle of his success came in the 2011-2012 season when Real Madrid won the La Liga title with a record 100 points.

Mourinho also won the Copa del Rey (2011) and the Supercopa de España (2012) during his three-year stint at the club.

The Manchester United Phase

Following his second spell at Chelsea, Mourinho moved to Manchester United in 2016. His tenure at United saw him add to his trophy cabinet with a UEFA Europa League (2017), an EFL Cup (2017), and the FA Community Shield (2016).

The AS Roma Appointment

In 2021, Mourinho took over the reins at AS Roma. As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, we can’t predict the future trophies Mourinho might have won at Roma. However, given his track record, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him add to his impressive list of achievements.
