Roma coach Mourinho: Winning trophies is never enough

Roma coach Jose Mourinho says a winning hunger has been the key to his career success.

Mourinho led Roma to the Europa Conference League title last season - a first European trophy for the club.

“I try not to feel too much pressure in my work," he told Forbes.

“I think I have a healthy relationship with stress. To not feel any is not good, just as feeling too much of it is. So it's important to have a good balance, as well as the experience to confront it."

Mourinho added: “I think the key [to success] is to never be happy with what you have. When you win some medals, you want more.

“When you score a goal, you want to score more. Everything rotates around the 'even more'. It's never enough. This feeling has nothing to do with age, it's to do with personality."

Asked about being a leader, he said: “The most important thing is that the people follow you. And to follow you, they need to believe in you.

“Normally they do it if they feel empathy towards you. In my case, as a leader, it's my responsibility not to let people or my team down.
