Mourinho asked about Guardiola winning more titles than him
Jose Mourinho believes he would have won more trophies than Pep Guardiola had he stayed at Porto and Inter Milan after winning the Champions League at each club.
Guardiola has guided Manchester City to the Premier League and the Carabao Cup this season – with the FA Cup final awaiting on Saturday – to extend his record to 26 major titles as a manager.
Mourinho, who was sacked by Manchester United in December after overseeing the club’s worst start to a league season in 28 years, has won 25 major honours during his managerial career but insists there would have been more had he remained at his former clubs.
“No, no, it reminds me that I’m there, with 25 titles,” he told L’Equipe when asked about Guardiola’s superior record.
“When I won the Champions League with Porto and Inter Milan, if I had stayed, the season after I would have had the European Super Cup, the Club World Cup and the national Super Cup and perhaps I would have ended up with 31 titles.
“Maybe I’m not so focused on the figures!”
