LONDON, Apr 29 (Reuters) Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho celebrated a personal milestone of four league titles in a row with his team's Premier League championship victory today.
''It's a fantastic feeling...that's the second in England after two in Portugal,'' Mourinho said totting up a tally that includes successive championships in his home country with his previous club Porto.
Mourinho, speaking to Sky Sports, said this season's victory was quite different from last year.
''Last season no one believed we would win, last season we were six, seven, eight points ahead and still people doubted,'' he said.
''This year, in December people were already saying Chelsea are champions.'' Mourinho praised Manchester United for playing their part in a fine championship-deciding match at Stamford Bridge.
''Manchester United were fantastic today and the result doesn't show how difficult it was for us (to clinch the title),'' Mourinho said.
''The two best teams of the season in this country were in this match. But we deserved to win the title because of our points difference.'' REUTERS DH PM1950
