“The cake (the Premier League title) is more important than the icing (the Manager of the Season award)” he told a British website.

He said: “It is, as you like to say in England, the icing on the cake, but the cake is more important than the icing.The cake is the Premier League, the cake is the objective of the manager, of the technical staff, of the squad, of the club, of the millions of supporters, and I work for the cake, I don’t work for this.

“If, at the top of the cake, I am the manager of the season, obviously I am very happy with that.”

Chelsea secured the Premier League title early in May after a win over Crystal Palace, with their last game of the season at home to Sunderland on 24 may.

He added: “The problem in football is that you are eating one cake and you are still thinking about the next one. This is permanent.

“So I enjoy this cake very, very much, I have missed it for a while because the last one was in the 2005/06. But to go back to England and win it again is a fantastic feeling.”

Mourinho looks all set for the next season even when the current season is yet to get over.
