The Pele of football managers!,
This review is from: Jose Mourinho: Made in Portugal - the Authorised Biography (Paperback)
If you like what the man has done since he came to this country you must buy this book. It tells the story of how he went from assistant to Bobby Robson to the main man in European Football.
The book is written by lifelong friend and journalist Luis Lourenco and contains a lot of direct and detailed quotes from Mourinho himself and is probably the most informative book I have read on football, he doesnt just talk blandly about tactics he goes into detail and what you see at Chelsea he was doing at smaller portugese clubs 3 or 4 seasons ago, with the same confidence and style.
His management career (as a number 1) is only 5-6 years old and Chelsea is his 4th club, which is a fast turnaround, yet every club he joins improves and every club he has left have gone backwards afterwards. Not to mention that in that time he won everything there is to win in Portugal, as well as the UEFA Cup and Champions League.
