Jose Mourinho No Longer Being Pompous?
The Portuguese man made the world shake his head during his first press conference session as Chelsea manager in the summer of 2004. That’s where Jose Mourinho began dub himself as The Special One.
“My first contact with Chelsea is very impressive, because I find people who have the same mentality as me, they love football, they want to win.”
“Chelsea have top players, and sorry Chelsea also has a top manager (referring to himself).”
“Please do not call me arrogant, because what I say is true I am a European champion so I am not an ordinary person, I think I am a special person,” so more or less Mourinho’s statement when he was first introduced as Chelsea’s then- .
The press conference in which Mourinho calls himself the Special One.
Mou himself proved his words are not kidding. Under his care, the Blues he took the Premier League title in a row in the 2004-05 season and 2005-16 at once destroyed the dominance of Manchetser United and Arsenal at the time.
Although later fired in his fourth season with the Blues, Mourinho still shows the quality he has with Inter Milan. In the Italian club Mou coached for two seasons and managed to dedicate two Seria A titles, one Coppa Italia and of course the title of Chaampions League in 2010.
With such a feat, people seem to forgive Jose Mourinho’s pride. At that time the Portuguese coach was considered indeed worth to boast.
However, later the 54-year-old coach seems to have started thinking to spend a cocky sentence. His trophy cuts dropped dramatically, especially in the last five years where Mou only collected two League titles, two League Cups, two domestic Super Cup titles and one Europa League.
Compare with before the year 2012, Mourinho is very glamorous title both at the domestic level to Europe. In addition Mou has also been long enough not to get the world’s best coach title. The last time Mou won the award in the year 2011 ago.
In addition philosophy of Jose Mourinho is very pragmatic also considered not match with Manchester United. The Red Devils has been known as a team that always play attractive and achieve good results such as when ditukangi Sir Alex Ferguson or Sir Matt Busby.
Jose Mourinho’s philosophy can actually still be “forgiven” if it is United dominant in the title. However, the reality is just the opposite, in last season United just menagkhiri season in the sixth Premier League.
It is true if in the season Paul Pogba et al managed to achieve “treble winners” in the form of League Cup, Community Shield and Europa League. However, the trophies are usually not considered too important for a team with a long history like Manchester United.
Mourinho is almost always inferior when Gather Guardiola.
This season despite improvements compared to previous years, United’s chances to win the Premier League title is rather difficult. Currently they are far behind from Manchester City are increasingly appearing craze with Pep Guardiola, which has been a scourge for Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho’s chances for United’s achievement this season are actually very open. In addition to the Premier League, Red Devils are also still playing in three other competitions namely League Cup, FA Cup and Champions League. However, if it can only win a League Cup or FA Cup title, Mourinho’s future at Old Trafford and his curiosity are highly questionable.
