  • Jose Mourinho won a total of 26 trophies in his managerial career
  • He became The Special One at Porto, leading them to six titles
  • He also found success at Chelsea, Manchester United, Inter and Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho’s reign at Roma didn’t last long.

The Italian club sacked the Portuguese manager after a string of poor results.

It wouldn’t be long, though, before he lands another coaching job, as he is a proven winner.

Sports Brief looks at the trophies Mourinho has won in his illustrious managerial career.

What trophies did Mourinho win?

Porto (2002-04, 6 trophies)

Mourinho first became a top-tier manager in September 2000 when he was appointed head coach by Portuguese side Benfica.

He only lasted three months at that job, with Mourinho resigning on December 5, 2000, after his request for a contract extension was denied.

He took Uniao de Leiria’s offer to become their manager in July 2001 and immediately transformed the club’s fortunes.

He led them to fourth place in the league after embarking on an eight-match unbeaten run from November 2001 to January 2002.

That caught the attention of Porto bosses, who decided to hire Mourinho as their new manager. He replaced Octavio Machado on January 23, 2002.

Mourinho made a name for himself when he took charge of Porto, helping the club win six trophies during his two seasons with them.

He led Porto to their first-ever Primeira Liga title in the 2002-03 season, posting a 27-5-2 record to finish 11 points ahead of Benfica.

They also won the Taca de Portugal and the UEFA Cup that season for a historic European treble.

More trophies came Porto’s way in the 2003-04 season. They won the Portuguese Super Cup, successfully defended their Portuguese league title, and captured the UEFA Champions League for the first time in their history.

They eliminated Manchester United, Lyon, Deportivo La Coruna, and Monaco in the knockout rounds to claim Europe’s biggest prize, per The Guardian.

Chelsea (2005-07, 6 trophies)

Russian owner Roman Abramovich signed Mourinho to a three-year contract to help the Blues become a force in English football.

That he did, leading Chelsea to back-to-back Premier League titles in his first two seasons with the club.

The Blues ran away with the title in 2005, finishing 12 points above Arsenal after posting an incredible 29-8-1 record.

He also won the FA Cup once (2007), captured the League Cup twice (2005 and 2007), and lifted the Community Shield in 2005.

After a poor start in the 2007-08 season, Mourinho decided to leave Chelsea by mutual consent on September 20, 2007.

Inter Milan (2008-10, 5 trophies)

Mourinho moved to Italy the following year, replacing Roberto Mancini as Inter Milan’s manager.

He also found success there, winning five trophies in total with the Nerazzurri.

He won the Supercoppa Italia in 2008 and the Serie A title in 2009. He signed off in style in the 2009-10 season, leading Inter to a historic treble.

They became the first Italian team to complete the European treble after they captured the Serie A, Coppa Italia, and Champions League titles.

Real Madrid (2010-13, 3 trophies)

Mourinho’s managerial stint at Real Madrid was considered a failure despite winning three trophies with them, as he wasn’t able to give the Spanish giants the Champions League title they yearned for.

He won the Copa Del Rey in 2011 and the La Liga and Supercopa de Espana titles in 2012.

They won the Spanish league title in style, recording the most wins in a La Liga season (32) and the most points scored in any of the top European leagues (100).

Chelsea (2013-15, 2 trophies)

Mourinho returned to Chelsea in 2013 and he made them champions once again.

He led them to the Premier League and League Cup titles in 2015.

Those were the only trophies he won in his second spell with the club. He decided to leave Chelsea on December 7, 2015, after the Blues lost nine of their first 16 matches in the 2015-16 Premier League season.

Manchester United (2016-18, 3 trophies)

Mourinho moved to Old Trafford in 2016 and immediately found success in his first season with United. He won the Community Shield in his first game with the Red Devils and led them to the Europa League and League Cup titles in 2017.

He failed to replicate that success in the following seasons, with United deciding to sack Mourinho on December 18, 2018.

Roma (2021-24, 1 trophy)

Mourinho headed to Roma in 2021 with a chip on his shoulder. His move to Tottenham didn’t go as expected, with Spurs failing to win any trophies under The Special One.

Mourinho managed to find the winning touch again in Italy, leading Roma to the UEFA Europa Conference League title in 2022, per the BBC.

He became the first manager to win all three major European competitions.

The good times didn’t last, though, as he was sacked by Roma on Tuesday.
