Jose Mourinho has celebrated Chelsea’s title triumph by using an ancient Portguese proverb to slam his critics.
Mourinho’s side have been accused of being “boring” by rival manager’s and TV pundits, but the Blues boss says its easy to judge from afar.
“In my country, we say the dogs bark and the caravan goes by,” Mourinho is quoted as saying by Goal.com.
“It’s easier to be a pundit. As a pundit you win every game, you don’t lose matches. It’s a fantastic job. Maybe in 10 years’ time it will be my job and then I will win every game.
“I am so happy for the players and so proud of everything we did since day one – now we feel we got what we deserved.
“I will try for another title. I will try always. The day I don’t feel the passion to try again, I stop.”
Chelsea lead the Premier League from start to finish and conceded the least goals of any side this season, however the achievement did nothing to stop critics slamming Mourinho’s style of football.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini certainly isn’t a fan of the way Chelsea reached its fourth Premier League triumph, saying his title-winning side last season played a more exciting and attacking brand of football.
“Chelsea did what we did last season. We did it by scoring more goals and by playing in a different style,” Pellegrini is quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.
“It’s important for the Premier League and the fans to play attractive football.”
Chelsea celebrated its fourth Premier League triumph after its narrow 1-0 defeat of Crystal Palace – the club’s first title since the 2009/10 season.
The Blues will finish on 92 points should they win all of their remaining games this season, meaning the west London club will fall agonisingly short of the Premier League record total of 95 it set during the 2004/05 season.
