Jose Mourinho if not the best then one of the best for sure started his coaching career from Benfica. But he gets his limelight in Porto. His football career was not even good, but unlike his football career, his coaching carrier was always in demand. In 2004 he won UEFA champions league for Porto which was incredible. Porto winning UCL is one of the wondrous things that happened in the 21st century because before and after that incident Porto was underdogs. But Jose Plenty of tricks and tips in defense changed everything, which helped Porto to win UCL from nowhere. Deco Pedro were assets of Jose were the reason Porto beat Monaco in the final (3-0)
“Please don’t call me arrogant but I am a European champion and I think I am a special one”.
After UCL, Jose went to London and helped Chelsea in winning the premier league title. Which was amazing because he stunned Manchester United and the invincible arsenal At Chelsea, he won plenty of trophies 3 years at Chelsea, but he cannot achieve UCL. In 2008, he joined inter and rest is history. Jose stayed at inter for 3 years and he won 3 Serie title and one of them was treble, which was an astonishing record for any coach.
“Without Jose, it was impossible to win a single trophy”. — Wesley Sneijder
His success remains the same at Real Madrid too. In 2010, he joined Los Vikingos . In his second season he won double for Real Madrid title and Copa Del Rey, at real Madrid he was quite famous for his counter attack. His defense assets were Pepe and Ramos while attacking assets were Ronaldo and Benzema. Real Madrid and Jose were one of the best stories with the unwanted end. Jose lost to Bayern Munich and BVB in two consecutive seasons in semifinals after which they sacked him and returned to Chelsea. When he came back to Chelsea. They already won the UCL, again Jose magic continue in winning the premier league but fail to UCL and get sacked again.
After London he went to Manchester United, he won the UEFA Europa League. For red devils, but because of an unnecessary dispute with players and board of directors, he was sacked from the club. This winter he joined spurs and now is back to London but not to Chelsea. I hope for his best because he might not be the best but he is a special one.
