Real Madrid manager José Mourinho has revealed that he did not take part in the January gala that announced winners of the FIFA Ballon d’Or award and the manager of the year award from FIFA because he knew ahead of the ceremony that the votes were inaccurate.

Mourinho has revealed that some of the managers who have voted for the Portuguese had said that their votes were wrongly registered. As a result, Mourinho chose not to attend the gala function. He has also said that he is not regret the actions.

Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo were the representatives for Real Madrid at this function. Ronaldo was in with a shout to win the second FIFA Ballon d’Or award of his career.

Mourinho, meanwhile, was competing against the likes of Spanish national team manager Vicente del Bosque for the manager of the year award. Madrid were left with no success from this awards ceremony as the Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi was crowned the best player in the world for the fourth consecutive time. Vicente del Bosque won the award for the best manager as a result of his success with the Spanish national team at the Euro 2012.

Mourinho won the league title in Spain with Real Madrid for the first time in three years.

"Am I sorry for not having gone to the gala? No. It was the right decision. One, two or three people called me saying they had voted for me but the vote showed up as cast for somebody else. So, I decided not to go," said the 50-year-old Portuguese.

"FIFA confirms that the list of votes published on is accurate," said a statement on the official website of FIFA. As a result of the league title, Mourinho has become one of the very few managers in the world to have lifted league titles in four different countries.
