Jose Mourinho believes it is his own success which has backtracked his career in recent years.
Speaking about his trackrecord as a football manager, the AS Roma boss looked back at how his own achievements have ended up hurting him in the long run.
Mourinho was sacked as Tottenham Hotspur’s boss last season after just over a year on the job. Prior to that he spent time at Manchester United, Chelsea, and was even heavily linked with the Arsenal job after Arsene Wenger’s departure.
Mourinho is described as enthusiastic by author Joao Gabriel in his new book – ‘Stay Crazy and Hungry.
“I’ve been a victim of myself and, if I could, it would be one of the things I wouldn’t repeat,” Mourinho said for the book.
“I won, won and won and I entered into a kind of dynamic where not winning seemed like the end of the world.
“I, myself, because of my personality, made out that the training, the games and the job were all to win, win, win … and then, when I came to situations where it was very difficult to win, which for other coaches is something acceptable, in my case it was never enough.
“Not winning was a failure, but that isn’t true.”
