Jose Mourinho, a portuguese football manager, was born on 26th January 1963. The Portuguese likes to call himself “The Special One”, though it is a self proclaimed title, the British media has taken it up and use it quiet frequently. Jose is currently
managing one of the top teams of Spanish La liga, Real Madrid.
During his youth, Jose started as a player but did not have the skills to prosper in the field and hence switched his goals to management. Till early 1990’s he only managed to work as an assistant manager and a youth team coach. His career took a turn when
he became Sir Bobby Robson’s interpreter. The veteran coach taught him a lot and built the foundation for the Portuguese that he needed to give a kick start to his career. He worked for Sir Bobby at Sporting Clube de Portugal and FC Porto in Portugal, before
following him to FC Barcelona.
Finally Jose got his big break when he returned to FC Porto in 2002, as head coach. Jose took the team to new heights, winning the Portuguese Liga, Cup of Portugal, and the UEFA Cup in 2003. He brought the team even more success in 2004 as he guided FC Porto
to the top of the league yet again and won the UEFA Champions League, which is the highest honor in European football.
The Following year, Jose moved to Chelsea and won them two consecutive Premier League titles. By this time, Jose Mourinho was recognized as one of the world’s top football manager. He was honored by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics,
by being awarded the title of the world’s best football manager for both the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons.
After Chelsea, the Portuguese manager moved to Italy to manage Internazionale, who play in Seria A. Within three months he brought honor to the team by winning Supercoppa Italiana and completed his first season in the country by winning the Seria A league
title. His success took yet another hike when he became the first manager to win a treble in Italian history, the Seria A league title, Coppa Italia, and the UEFA Champions League, this also made him the third manager in football history to have won two UEFA
Champions League titles with two different teams.
