Jose Mourinho has won seven league titles in four countries

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he is "happy" that only a few managers can match his success.

The 52-year-old has won two European Cups and seven league titles as manager of Porto, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea.

"My happiness, first of all, is when I compare myself with the others. I see just a few that are with me in terms of success," he said.

"And the others? I see a huge difference, a huge distance."
