Former Inter coach Jose Mourinho discussed his time in charge of Spanish giants Real Madrid, the club he joined straight after winning the Treble with the Nerazzurri, in an interview in today’s paper edition of the Madrid based newspaper Marca.

First, he discussed if the 2011/12 season with Real Madrid was the highest point in his coaching career.

“It’s very difficult for me to say if that was the highest point or not. But obviously it was a very important moment because it happened in a special period when Barcelona dominated.

“It put an end to that domination and we did it reaching a point record and a goal record like that, which made it even more interesting and important, since we did it in the best possible way. It’s not just that we won the league, it’s that we did it in a way that has made history.”

Finally, Mourinho spoke about the league titles he’s won and his work across Europe.

“That was my special treble, if we leave aside the Portuguese league, of course. I wanted to win and succeed in Italy, England and Spain. And I’m still the only coach who has done that. The truth is that I really wanted to go down in the history of football that way, but I also really wanted Real Madrid and to win with Real Madrid.”

The Portuguese coach guided Inter to the first Treble in Italian football history and the sixth in European football in the 2009/10 season.

With a team of stars like Javier Zanetti, Diego Milito and Samuel Eto’o, the Nerazzurri won the league title, the Champions League and the Coppa Italia, only failing to win the Supercoppa Italiana domestically.

He famously joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2010 and again found success there, winning a league title, the Copa del Rey and the Supercopa de España, before returning to Chelsea in 2013.
