Jose Mourinho is widely regarded as one of the best coaches in soccer. The former football player has been the coach of several teams in his career, starting with Porto, and then Inter, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and now Manchester United.
Many players, coaches, commentators, and fans regard him as one of the greatest and most successful managers in the world. In 2015, he was named the best Portuguese coach of the century by Portuguese Football Federation.
Mourinho has given himself the nickname “The Special One”. Exactly what makes him unique and special? For starters, he is one of the few coaches that has studied sports science.
And there is no denying he brings success everywhere he goes.
Fun fact: he is one of the few managers that have been part of both Barcelona and Real Madrid. He was part of Barcelona in the 1990s, when he worked with Sir Bobby Robson as an interpreter, and then for his successor Louis van Gaal.
