4 Guinness World Records Held By Jose Mourinho That Set Him Apart From Other Managers In Football

Jose Mourinho is a Portuguese professional football manager who coaches Italian club AS Roma. He is famous for being one of the most successful managers in football. He may have had an uneventful career as a professional footballer, but he has achieved even greater success as a manager.

Over the course of 21 years (2000-date), he has managed a host of clubs such as Benfica, Uniao de Leiria, Porto, Chelsea (2004–2007, 2013–2015), Inter Milan, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and currently Roma, breaking and creating several records with these clubs, most notably, Chelsea.

See below a list of Jose Mourinho's four Guinness World Records.


1. Most Premier League Points in a Season (95).

He achieved this record during the 2004/05 Premier League season after winning 29 games, drawing 8, and losing only 1. As a matter of fact, during that same season, Chelsea conceded only 15 goals. This, definitely, is among the lowest, if not the lowest.


2. Most CL’s Won at Several Clubs (2).

Another outstanding record held by the Portuguese. He won the Champions League with Porto during the 2003/04 season, and with Inter Milan during the 2009/10 season.


3. Youngest Manager to Reach 100 CL Games.

He also holds the record for being the youngest manager to reach a century of games in the Champions League." He achieved this at 49 years and 12 days.


4. Premier League Unbeaten Home Run.

He also holds the record for the most games unbeaten at home in the Premier League (77). He achieved this during his time as Chelsea manager.


In my opinion, these Guinness Records held by Jose Mourinho put him in a place higher than other managers in the history of football. It's extremely difficult to achieve one, talk less of four. He is without a doubt one of the greatest managers in the history of football.


He is famous for his charisma, tactical knowledge, and controversial personality. In 2015, the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) named him the Portuguese Coach of the Century.


Some of his outstanding team honours as a manager include:

Porto: Primeira Liga (2), UEFA Champions League (1).

Chelsea: Premier League (3), FA Cup (1).

Inter Milan: Serie A (2), UEFA Champions League (1).

Real Madrid: Copa Del Rey (1), La Liga (1).

Manchester United: UEFA Europa League (1), EFL Cup (1).
