MOURINHO MAKES GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDSBy quadrihatic 11:00 Fri, 04 Sep 2015 Comments
The Portuguese was presented with the awards
which recognise his achievements at Porto, Real
Madrid, Inter and Chelsea, including longest
unbeaten home run.
Jose Mourinho received a boost to a stuttering start
to the season with Chelsea when he was presented
with five records that will be included in the 2016
Guinness Book of Records.
The coach has come under pressure in the opening

reminder of his managerial abilities, with awards
that pay tribute to his time at Porto, Chelsea, Inter
