‎Mourinho, Ronaldo and Yaya Toure among new title holders in GWR 2016 edition

Despite his side’s rather lacklustre start to the season, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho had reason to be cheerful going into the international break after being informed that he would be entering the 2016 Guinness World Records four times.

The Portuguese won his first brace of Guinness World Records during his first stint in charge at Chelsea back in 2004-05 when the Blues amassed the most points (95) and conceded the fewest goals (15) in a title-winning Premier League campaign.

The record third came for overseeing the most Premier League games unbeaten at home in a row (77), a run which straddled his two tenures at Stamford Bridge.

Finally, Mourinho’s fourth entry is for becoming the youngest ever manager to take charge of 100 Champions League games (49 years and 12 days), a milestone he passed when his Real Madrid side drew 1-1 with Man City in 2012.

With all records now officially recognised, Mourinho was presented with four framed certificates to hang in his office at Cobham.

“The fact that I can hang these awards in my office is nice,” he told the Guinness World Record website. “It’s something fun and as a kid, you could never imagine that one day you would be in the Guiness World Records book.

“I’m now more focused on winning the next game than on what I’ve done in the last 10 or 15 years.
