Former Chelsea and Manchester City midfielder Sean Wright-Phillips has labelled Jose Mourinho as the best manager he played under during his career.

Mourinho signed the England international as a 23-year-old in a £21million deal from Manchester City in 2005.

Wright-Phillips claimed that the Portuguese had an ability to dictate situations before they had happened and used an example of how Mourinho predicted that how Chelsea would draw a cup match against Spurs whilst he was in charge and even got the score of the replay at White Hart Lane correct.

The midfielder also credited Mourinho with expanding his footballing knowledge and made him a better player.


Spurs fans will now be hoping that Mourinho will bring this ability to get the best out of his players with the squad he has in North London.
