Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho used the occasion of the Blues sealing the Premier League title to have a dig at La Liga. ‘We don’t win 8-0 here.’
A 1-0 win over Crystal Palace after Eden Hazard converted the rebound of a missed penalty was enough to confirm Chelsea as champions with three games to play.
When discussing his decision to go back to Stamford Bridge after a spell at Real Madrid, Mourinho claimed the English League was more difficult than its Spanish counterpart.
“It might be smarter to coach in a country where it is easier to be champion,” he said, according to AS.
“I chose a club with no tradition of titles, a hard job. When I came back, I knew I had the most difficult League to win in the world. Here we don’t win 6-0 or 8-0.”
