Mourinho insists Chelsea's 2010 Premier League title triumph had his fingerprints all over it.
He told FourFourTwo magazine: “It is funny. You see the Chelsea team that played for the last eight years. I was only here for three and a half of them, but for eight years, it was my team.”
“There were new players coming in every season, of course. That is normal, but the team that won the three Championships [2005, 2006 and 2010] was the same.”
Mourinho also implied that, should Real Madrid win a trophy under Ancelotti this year, it will once again be the team he constructed that wins, and not the Italian’s.
“The Inter team was [also] the same for two years after me, until they decided to sell the players on big salaries.”
