PLAYERS: Jose Mourinho
Jose Mourinho is up there among the very biggest names in football management. Think about some of the top bosses in the game today – Guardiola, Ancelotti, Ferguson until recently, and Mourinho’s name always pops up alongside them. It’s no wonder why either, he’s led two different clubs to the Champions League title and won numerous domestic honours across Europe. Having managed FC Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, four regular participants in the top competitions across Europe, it’s easy to see why he has such a reputation. However, he also has a reputation for being somewhat eccentric and outspoken. He did of course christen himself as “a special one” in his press conference at Chelsea having agreed a deal to take over as boss at Stamford Bridge. Now, ahead of “the second coming”, the Soccer Store have created this great infographic that shows some of the best bits about Mr. Mourinho, from his managerial record to his philosophy and style of management.   Please like O-Posts on Facebook You can follow O-Posts on Twitter @OPosts
