Five of Jose’s Greatest Moments

Love him or hate him, Jose Mourinho lights up the Premier League with his entertaining style of play and his loud-mouth interviews.

The Portuguese national is already priced at 5/1 with sports betting NewZealand platforms to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked.

He’s now managing his fourth Premier League club has certainly some memorable moments and picking just five of the best was difficult, but here are those that have made the list.

The Charge of The Light Brigade

Jose won the Europa League with Porto in 2002/03 and therefore qualified for the following season’s Champions League.

It was Manchester United who were Porto’s opponents in the Round of 16, and their 2-1 first-leg advantage was cancelled out at Old Trafford by a Paul Scholes effort in the return leg.

But, a Costinha goal in the final minutes sparked scenes of jubilation and a hilarious charge down the touchline by the Portuguese manager.

The Special One

His success in the Champions League with Porto in 2004 persuaded Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich to bring him to Chelsea.

Jose was quick to make an impression too, declaring in his first interview that he was a “special one” following his European triumph.

The nickname stuck with him and Mourinho has since gone on to be one of the true entertainers in the sport.

Wild Celebrations at The Nou Camp

During Mourinho’s second season at Inter Milan, the Italian giants won the Champions League after a stunning semi-final triumph over Barcelona.

A 3-2 aggregate victory brought wild celebrations, including Mourinho’s charge across the pitch where he briefly tussled with Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

Finger in the Eye

Considered one of Mourinho’s most embarrassing moments  came whilst he was manager at Real Madrid in a match against, unsurprisingly, Barcelona.

During the 2011 Spanish Super Cup fixture, a Marcelo tackle on Cesc Fabregas ignited mayhem on the touchline.

In shocking fashion, Jose Mourinho got involved, poking Barca coach Tito Vilanova in the eye which led to his poisonous relationship with the Spanish media.

Three Fingers

Jose Mourinho’s third season at Manchester United got off to a terrible start; a fallout with Anthony Martial in pre-season and a ruckus with the board over signings set the tone for the beginning of the season.

In a match against his old side Chelsea which ended 2-2, Jose lifted three fingers to the Chelsea fans at full-time in West London which he later claimed was to show many Premier League titles he had won.

Tottenham’s currently sit eighth in the Premier League and are priced as high as 20/1 across reputable gambling sites like
