The best of all: Mourinho

The other side of things:

Perhaps you know Mou from the media, who uses his nickname "The Special One", a self-proclaimed title, in diferent ways. Mou seems to be a master of mind games. He is the king motivator, the master baiter, and he has been, for certain periods of his career, the manifestation of God himself.

He's been famous for hios personal style to defend his players  interests in a controversial way.
As early as 2004 Mourinho refused to shake hands with Boavista coach Jaime Pacheco, quoting "I don't shake hands with someone I don't know"
A weel-know to barça fans, 
Barcelona is a cultural city with many great theatres and this boy  (Messi) has learned very well. He’s learned play-acting.” – After Messi got Asier Del Horno sent off.

This season he stated that  "If teams gift their games to Barcelona, it will be harder to win the league. They think that they will not win and therefore play with their reserve squad – this would complicate the league for us." after an ample win BArça with Racing Santander.

But look at the other side:
He said these words, and will die for them:

  • The team is completely close. Anything you say outside, there is no chance it will go inside. So the team is really strong and compact. We know what we want and how to achieve it on the pitch.”

  • “I don’t want special relations with one of them (his players). I hate to speak about individuals. Players don’t win you trophies, teams win trophies, squads win trophies.”

    Jose Mourinho Market Research GuruWhat Jose Mourinho Taught Me About Market Research

    Do you think Jose Mourinho knows much about market research, brand segmentation, and customer profiling?
    Think again...
    Mou does know his market (the opposition) and does endless research. Ask anyone who’s worked with him at Chelsea, Barcelona or Real Madrid.
    Mourinho is notorious for gathering information about the opposition team, analyzing the data, and briefing his players. The results are impressive.
    When interviewed for the Chelsea vacancy, he prepared PowerPoint presentations showing where and how he would develop the team.
    Board members were blown away. Mourinho looked at the league table that way a General would a battle field.
    He assessed his troops (team), reviewed the enemy(Man United perhaps), and drew up plans to undermine the opposition. And it worked.
