Turns out Jose Mourinho can have his cake, and eat it, too!

Mmm...cake!

Earlier today, Jose Mourinho was named Premier League Manager of the Year for the third time in his career, matching the number of Premier League trophies he has won in his career as well.  The latter bit, that's the cake.

"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."

Mmm...cake.  We're at the top of the cake!  We've scaled the dizzy heights.  And what a wonderful view from this cake-peak.  A bit slippy with all the icing, but we'll manage.

"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."

So, if I'm reading this correctly, and I'd like to think that I am, Mourinho wants MORE CAKE.  Mmm...cake!  Who doesn't love cake?  MORE CAKE!  More cake?  Yes please!

NB. Premier League Player of the Year Eden Hazard could not be reached for comment or partake in any cake, for that matter, on account of being doped up after wisdom tooth-removal surgery.  Save him a piece!
