LONDON, May 31- Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho admits his next step with the club is European glory after cruising to the Premier League title this season.

The Blues wrapped up the top-flight crown at the start of May and eventually ended the campaign eight points clear at the top of the standings to claim the trophy they last won in 2010.

Things were not so easy in the Champions League, though, as the west London giants went down to Paris Saint-Germain on the away-goals rule in the last 16, but Mourinho believes his side are continually improving and expects even bigger things next term.

“It’s always difficult to win the Champions League, which is why all the big guys don’t do it seven, eight times in their careers,” he said.

“This season we were better than last season and next season we hope to be better than this season. Hopefully we get our chance.”

He added: “Enjoying football is winning. That’s what I want to do for the rest of my career. This season was a great example, it was a third Premier League for me but a first for many of our young players.

“To see their pride and to see the fans going back to victories is the reason I am in the game.”
