So Chelsea couldn’t progress further than the Champions League quarterfinals. And the Blues’ got knocked out of the FA Cup by lowly Bradford City.
Who cares? Chelsea lifted the League Cup and, much more importantly, claimed the Premier League trophy.
With two titles this season, José Mourinho snapped his two-season trophy-less stretch. And those two seasons without a trophy are the only two without a title in the manager’s career.
2002-03: Portuguese Liga, Taca de Portugal, UEFA Cup
2003-04: Portuguese Liga, UEFA Champions League
2004-05: Premier League, League Cup
2005-06: Premier League
2006-07: FA Cup, League Cup
2008-09: Serie A
2009-10: Serie A, Coppa Italia, UEFA Champions League
2010-11: Copa del Rey
2011-12: La Liga
2014-15: Premier League, League Cup
That’s 18 trophies in 12 seasons.
He averages 1.5 trophies per season. As in, that’s his typical output.
José Mourinho might be really, really good at this whole management thing.
