Jose proud to beat record
13 Aug 2007 - 07:26:08
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho praised his players after they beat Birmingham City 3-2 on Sunday to extend their unbeaten Premier League run at Stamford Bridge to 64 games.
The Blues now have the new record for the number of top-flight home games without defeat, beating the previous best set by Liverpool between 1978 and 1980.
"We are very proud to beat the record," said the Chelsea boss.
"It was a good game to celebrate the home record, a game with lots of goals and enthusiasm.
"I know most of the players from the Liverpool team and to beat their record in the modern era is a fantastic achievement.
"The record means more to Chelsea than it does for me. The previous record belonged to top players - Kenny Dalglish, Alan Hansen, Phil Neal and other great Liverpool players.
"At the moment it belongs to Chelsea - John Terry, Frank Lampard, Eidur Gudjohnsen and all the guys who contributed.
"I'll have to go home and remember every player that helped us achieve the record because not all of them are here - Gudjohnsen, Geremi, Damien Duff, all these guys.
"Chelsea has written its name in the history books of the Premier League and it's a great record. I'm very flattered for being part of the record."
