The Blues boss has won the Premier League’s monthly award for the best manager on a total of just three occasions across his two spells with the West London outfit, but remarkably hasn’t won the award since March 2007.

In the 2005/06 season he became the first manager to win the league title without claiming at least one Manager of the Month award and it now on course to repeating the feat this season after losing out to Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson for April’s honours.

It is rather bizarre that Mourinho has not won the award this season given the fact that the Blues have been the most consistent side throughout the campaign having not been knocked off the table all year and he admits it is hard to explain why he has consistently been overlooked:

“For many months no defeats, only victories but I can do nothing.” The Portuguese manager told reporters (via Mail Online)

“I can just enjoy my title which is the most important thing.”

“My objective for the season is to be champion and what comes comes and what doesn’t come doesn’t come.

“I prefer not to comment, but I would like to know the people in the panel. Who are they because maybe someday I meet somebody and I want to hug him.” Mourinho joked whilst motioning a strangulation gesture.
