Synopsis

The Little Book of Jose Mourinho by Clive Batty

Who does Jose Mourinho think he is? In his short time in English football, he's put almost everybody's nose out of joint with his sharp tongue. He described himself as 'the special one', then called Arsene Wenger a 'voyeur'. He was banned by UEFA for criticising referee Anders Frisk, who subsequently retired after death threats from Chelsea fans. He's the face of American Express and other big-name brands. Mourinho's a football big mouth who always comes up trumps. Born the son of a Portuguese goalkeeper, Felix Mourinho, he was an average player but he's turned out to be the world's outstanding manager. He won the UEFA Cup, the Champions League and the Premiership in successive seasons and he now earns more than GBP 5m a year. This book is about the most controversial person in football, featuring what he's said and what' s been said about him.
