Jose Mourinho stunningly announced that he twice felt like quitting as Chelsea boss during his second English Premiership title-winning season because it was the worst club in the world to work for.

The miserable manager sensationally put his long-term future at the club in doubt just minutes after securing back-to-back titles with a 3-0 trouncing of second-placed Manchester United.

The Blues boss has pulled off the remarkable feat of winning four straight championships - two at Porto in his native Portugal and two at Stamford Bridge.

But instead of telling the world of his joy at yet another title win, he chose instead to sour the occasio by revealing he felt thoroughly fed up with life at the top - and hinted it might be time to call it a day.

"I feel like a man that during the season thought a couple of times of closing the door and saying goodbye," Mourinho said.

"Not in that month, but to do it at the end of the season. I thought a couple of times.

"The feeling is always a negative feeling. It's the fourth time in a row I win the championship. I should be the happiest manager in the world in this moment, and I'm not."

Then he warned: "And it makes me think - because I want to be happy.
