Stamford Bridge boss is his own number one fan.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has a reputation for blowing his own trumpet and quotes covered by the Telegraph suggest that the Portuguese boss is once again calling the tune.

His West London side crashed out of the Champions League in midweek but that hasn’t lessened Mourinho’s buoyant attitude, not one bit.
Mourinho has claimed he is in a league of his own when it comes to managment, stating;
“People are too much worried about me than they should [be]. They don’t know what my happiness is. My happiness, first of all, is when I compare myself with the others [managers], I see just a few that are with me in terms of success.
“And the others I see a huge difference, a huge distance, with all the respect that they deserve and this is not a fight with them and I have lots of respect for all of them.
“But in the Premier League, who is European champion? Me and Van Gaal. Right? In the Premier League, how many won the Premier League twice or more than twice? Mr Wenger and myself.
“How many won every competition in this country? Community Shield, Capital One Cup, FA Cup, Premier League. How many? How many?
“You go to Europe, how many won seven league titles? How many won two Champions Leagues? Ancelotti wins three, Van Gaal two and Pep [Guardiola] has two. I am not content with that, but you are too much worried about myself.
“What makes me feel special is that I am above all of this. You think I care with some bull—- I read? Do you think I care? I don’t care.” Mourinho added.
Though Mourinho may well rub some up the wrong way with this egotistical nature there is no denying he has a point when it comes to his glowing resume.
The Chelsea manager is well placed to add another Premier League crown to his CV as his side take on Southampton on Sunday afternoon some five points clear of second placed Man City.
Oh…and they have two games in hand….
