Real Madrid manager José Mourinho has said that leading the club to the Spanish league title has been the biggest achievement of his managerial career. José Mourinho was brought to Real Madrid in the hope of ending the dominance of Barcelona.
He has managed to do exactly that after reclaiming the title from the Camp Nou after three years. This is the first league title for Real Madrid since 2008. José Mourinho has also managed to guide Real Madrid to the semifinals of the Champions League in the last two seasons, which is a major achievement considering that the club has been knocked out in the last 16 stage on numerous occasions prior to his arrival.
Real Madrid clinched the Spanish league title after 3-0 win over athletic Bilbao, which many saw as one of the toughest games of the season for Real Madrid in their attempt to close the title from Barcelona. Now, Real Madrid have the opportunity to become the first team to break the 100 point barrier when it comes to the total tally. Barcelona currently hold the record with 99 points, but Real Madrid can now take that record by winning the remaining two matches in the league. José Mourinho has now won league titles in all the four countries he has managed.
“I won the league title in Portugal, Italy and England, but this one has been the toughest. I’ve won seven league titles overall and I know what it feels like. Barcelona won all their games, as befits the great team that they are. They’ve been winning to the very last day. They are a club with great tradition that knows we deserved to win this title. We have to celebrate this championship (but then) we have to continue working,” said José Mourinho after winning the title.
