Jose Mourinho, the self styled special one is one of the elite managers in the modern game. By achieving huge success in all the clubs he has managed, he has been able to make a name for himself in world football.
Mourinho started his managerial career with Benfica in the year 2000. He has gone on to manage F.C. Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and lately Manchester United. Jose has done well in all of these teams by winning silverware and changing history in these teams.
But Mourinho’s style of winning doesn’t come without sacrifices. His style of play can be termed as conservative, defensive minded and tactical discipline which some people may term “boring” since football is all about playing the ball right? Isnt it? Little wonder why as a top manager he still has lots of critics who don’t think highly of him.
This is the exact reason why many Machester United fans do not like Mourinho. United has a history of playing open, attacking minded football as against Mourinho’s style. Some fans even sing “boring boring Jose” to show their frustration at the way the team is playing.
Another problem with Mourinho is that he lacks to a huge extent, man management techniques. In his previous clubs he’s had clashes with many players with latest being Paul Pogba whom he reportedly told to “get out” of the training pitch. The public incidence was the final straw for many fans, with them callling for his sack.
“Youre getting saked in the morning” they sang, during the game where Man Utd lost to 3-1 West Ham. Many man utd club legends have also spoken out against Mourinho and his management style, fingering him as the cause of all the problems bedevilling the squad.
Mou still has his job at Manchester but for how long? The big clash against chelsea is upon us, will Mourinho prevail? We shall see.
