Jose Mourinho’s greatest quates !!!

Updated on July 26, 2016
  • On dealing with the media:

“When I go to the press conference before the game, in my mind the game has already started.”

  • On joining Chelsea in 2004:

“I have top players and, I’m sorry, we have a top manager. Please do not call me arrogant because what I say is true. I’m European champion, I’m not one out of the bottle, I think I’m a special one.”

  • On leaving Porto FC for Chelsea in 2004

“If I wanted to have an easy job I would have stayed at Porto: beautiful blue chair, the UEFA Champions League trophy, god, and after god, me.”

  • On producing young talents:

“Young players are like melons. Only when you open and taste the melon are you 100% sure that the melon is good.”

  • On a film of his life:

“If they made a film of my life, I think they should get George Clooney to play me. He is a fantastic actor and my wife thinks he would be ideal.”

  • On Arsene Wenger:

“He is a specialist in failure. I’m not… It’s because I don’t fail many times. So maybe he is right: I’m not used to failing. But the reality is he is a specialist because, eight years without a piece of silverware, that is failure.”

  • On a ball boy not giving the ball back:

“One day somebody will punch you.”

"Mourinho" is a beautiful illustrated book which is both a sumptuous celebration of The Special One's managerial career so far, and an enigmatic insight into his unique brand of football wisdom and philosophy. In the legendary manager's very first book, and in his own images and captions, Jose Mourinho charts the peaks and troughs of the opening fifteen years of what has been a stellar rise to the summit of the global game. Through more than 120 personally selected images (some of which are exclusive to the book), fans will relish an intimate and unmissable opportunity to understand and further appreciate this giant of the sport.

  • On God:

“He must really think that I’m a great guy. He must think that, because otherwise he would not have given me so much… He has helped me so much that he might have a very high opinion on me.”

  • On Lionel Messi after Asier del Horno was sent off against Barcelona:

“How do say cheating in Catalan?”

  • On taking the Manchester United job:

“It is a job that everyone wants and not many have a chance to have it and I have it.”

Do you think Jose Mourinho is that great of a manager to be titled "The Special One" ?!
