Conte refuses comparison with Mourinho’s record at Chelsea

by -

Chelsea struggled to keep consistency throughout all the season but despite being on the brink of being sacked in more than an occasion Antonio Conte succeeded in reaching 100 games as Blues boss.

The Italian coach has pointed out that his record compares favourably with that of José Mourinho at Stamford Bridge, recording 65 wins across those 100 games compared to Mourinho’s 72.

“For sure, this is a good stat but I know that, this season, we could have done better,” he told reporters.

“Mourinho was 72 in the first 100? We are talking about a great manager. Don’t forget that the first 100 games with Mourinho were many years ago. Now it’s not simple, I think.

 “To have these type of results in this moment, in this present Chelsea, I must be pleased for the players, for the club, but for sure, we could do better.

“I won a title with Juventus after two seventh places. When you win a title in this way, it’s a great, great achievement. Not a simple achievement. Last season we won a title after a 10th place. When you win a title in this way, it means it’s a great, great achievement.

“Not a simple achievement, only because your name is Chelsea and it’s normal because in the past you won many titles. You have to see the era you are going through.”
