Jose Mourinho believes he should be labelled 'the only one' after becoming the first manager to win the top three European Leagues.
Mourinho infamously labelled himself 'the special one' after taking over as Chelsea manager in 2004, before leading the Blues to the English Premier League title in successive seasons.
The Portuguese went on to win two Serie A titles at Inter Milan, before leading current club Real Madrid to La Liga glory last term, in the process becoming the only manager to have won domestic titles in England, Italy and Spain.
Speaking to Portuguese television channel SIC on Monday, Mourinho explained that as his managerial career has progressed, he has become less selfish and less focused on individual goals.
- Things have been going well for me, thank God. I am focused on others much more these days. The pleasure of winning with Inter Milan was seeing a club, which had not won for 50 years, winning again, he said.
- That is what entices me more and more, instead of pursuing individual goals.
- Like me or not, I am the only one who won the world's three most important leagues. So, maybe instead of the 'special one', people should start calling me the 'only one'."
Real Madrid kick off the new campaign with a clash against Valencia this weekend.
