Jose Mourinho Named #9 In AskMen’s Top 49 Most Influential Men Of 2010

Filed under: Jose Mourinho, Magazines

‘Jose Mourinho may just be the most polarizing figure in a sport full of them. But he’s also one of the most successful. Known around the world as “The Special One” (a nickname he gave himself, by the way), the Portuguese tactician is the most famous football coach in the world, and has been hopping from top club to top club in an attempt to see just how many championships he can win. So far so good. After winning a momentous Champions League title with FC Porto in 2004, and bringing the Premier League’s Chelsea to similar glory in following years, Mourinho capped his 2010 by leading a star-studded Inter Milan to the first treble — the Serie A title, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League title (with a stifling win over Bayern Munich) — in Italy’s history.

But in true Mourinho fashion, the charismatic manager needed a new challenge, and fled to Real Madrid for a record-breaking financial package. Despite Real Madrid’s early-season struggles, Mourinho is too talented a manager, and too fiery a personality, to let his club watch idly as their rivals pass them by. Expect Real Madrid to compete for a title, and expect the impeccably dressed Mourinho to lead them there.’

Thanks to Jake for the heads up…….
