Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho titled him as the "Only One" after he was previously been titled as the "Special One". Mourinho has found success in Portugal, England, Italy and now in Spain.

The Portuguese has never failed to pick up a trophy in a calendar year during his time as a manager. Mourinho titled himself as the "Special One" when he took over the English Football club Chelsea in 2004.

Mourinho has never disappointed the club he managed till date. During his managerial career, Mourinho has bagged two Portuguese titles, the Champions League and the UEFA Cup at Porto, two Premier League titles at Chelsea, two Serie A titles and the Champions League with Inter Milan and the  Copa del Rey and Spanish La Liga with Real Madrid.

Speaking about his success as a manager, Mourinho said he titled himself as the "Only One".

"In England, I was presented as the 'Special One'. Thanks to God, things have gone well and, whether you like it or not, I am the only one who has won the English, Italian and Spanish championships. So, more than the 'Special One', they must begin to call me the 'Only One'" Mourinho said.

"After having won practically everything, as time has passed I have become less self-centered and egocentric," he said. "I have always liked more the joy of other people, those around me. For this, winning with Inter gave me a special pleasure. These are challenges, not personal goals. I also think I could have been a good human resources executive." Mourinho went on to add.

Mourinho also went on to claim that no other side in the world could compete with the Two Spanish Giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.

"It is a consequence of the footballing power of the two clubs," he said. "The best team from England, or Germany, Holland, or from any other country, the most they could do in Spain would be third place"

"This duel of titans forces the clubs and the players to become better. It is a healthy duel and I enjoy it. The two clubs are fighting for world football hegemony"

Mourinho's success has been applauded by many and the Portuguese is considered as one of the best in the world. We have Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and Pep Guardiola who left Barcelona last summer and the two have bought a lot of success to their respective clubs. With the Portuguese having tough competition from several mangers from the world's best club at the moment, it is too early to title Mourinho as the Best Manager in the world.
