Abramovich hailed after title triumph

Owner Roman Abramovich should take most of the credit for Chelsea’s continued success, manager Jose Mourinho has insisted. 

Abramovich brought Mourinho to Chelsea for the first time in 2004 and reappointed the Portuguese as boss in 2013.

Since Mourinho arrived in the summer of 2004, the Blues have won 13 major trophies, with four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, one Europa League and one Champions League.

Mourinho, who has lifted seven of those titles, including a third Premier League title this season, said: “He is the man that won every title at Chelsea.

“Some players did some, some players did others, some managers did some. Mr Abramovich is the only won that won every title. So if he has replicas, he needs a big house.”

And Mourinho reiterated his desire to stay at Chelsea in the long term.

“I think I am in the right place,” Mourinho added. “I stay here until Mr Abramovich wants me to stay. The day he wants me to go, I go.”
