Jose Mourinho has made a bold claim regarding his silverware achievement saying he has won “25 and a half trophies”. He is of the opinion that he showed the proper direction to Tottenham as they reached the Carabao Cup final last campaign. However, just six days before the match, the north London club sacked the Portuguese.

Mourinho will take control of the deck at Roma next season in Serie A. There is no doubt that the Portuguese tactician has officially lifted 25 major trophies across his exalted career. This includes all the treasure from Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, and Manchester United. Mourinho was stripped down at Spurs due to lack of consistency. And under interim boss Ryan Mason, they lost the cup final to Manchester City. 

Some seriousness in a joke?

The 58-year-old told The Sun: “So if you want me to be proactive now you can ask me, ‘how many trophies have you won in your career?’ I’ll tell you 25 and a half. The half is the final that I didn’t play with Tottenham. You ask the guys who played lots of finals and everybody will tell you. ‘To play a final is a dream’ and it doesn’t matter if it is the first final or number 20 or number 50. A final is always a dream.”

“A Wembley final is more than a dream. I played the first on the new Wembley and every time I go there, it’s more than a dream. And to have a chance to win a trophy with a club that doesn’t have many of course was a double dream. I am the kind of guy that when I close the door of a club. I move and I just wish good to people. But in a funny way, I would say I have 25 and a half titles because it’s something that marks my career which is not to play a final that I won the right to go there.”
