Mourinho says winning La Liga toughest assignment yet

6:52 pm on 3 May 2012

The Real Madrid football coach Jose Mourinho says winning La Liga was the toughest of the seven league titles he's won in his native Portugal, England, Italy and Spain.

Real sealed the Spanish title with a 3-nil win at Athletic Bilbao that maintained their seven-point lead over Barcelona with two games left and ended their bitter rivals' three-year stranglehold on the Spanish championship.

Mourinho became the first coach to win a domestic league in four different major countries following his two titles in Portugal with Porto, two in England with Chelsea, two in Italy with Inter Milan and now one in Spain with Real.
