Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says that he cannot be compared to other manager and that will he is disappointed at being knocked out of the Champions League for what for him would have been an unprecedented third European Championship with three different reams is not his motivation claiming that his “happiness” comes above all else when asked by Sky Sports what makes him so special.

“My happiness, first of all, is when I compare myself with others. I see just a few that are with me in terms of success and the others I see a huge difference and a huge distance,” Mourinho said.

“I have lots of respect for all of them but, in the Premier League, who is European champion? Me and Louis van Gaal. How many won the Premier League twice or more than twice? Me and Arsene Wenger.

“How many won every competition in this country? Community Shield, Capital One Cup, FA Cup, Premier League? In Europe, how many won seven league titles? How many won two Champions Leagues? Carlo Ancelotti won three and Van Gaal and Pep Guardiola won two.

“I’m not content with that but I think people worry about me too much. They don’t know what my happiness is.

“What makes me feel special is that I am above all of this. You think I care about some bull**** I read? I don’t care.”
