Jose Mario dos Santos Mourinho Felix, better known as Jose Mourinho, is a Portuguese football manager.
It must be said that he is one of the most famous and best coaches the world has ever known.
The coach marked the careers of two of the best African players of all time: Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o. With Lusitano, the Ivorian has become the best Chelsea striker ever and the Cameroonian is considered an Inter Milan legend.
After winning the treble with Inter Milan, Jose Mourinho joined Real Madrid. Special One had a decent transfer window budget.
He signed players like Luka Modric, Khedira, Essien and Adebayor. But before enlisting the Togo striker, Mourinho asked Florentino Perez, recalls Mundo Deportivo, Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba.
“Jose Mourinho was going to try to convince his boss Florentino Perez to do his best to recruit his former Inter Milan striker, Samuel Eto’o. In the event of failure, he had another name on his mind, Didier Drogba. But it is clear that the memo did not know how to convince its management to make a major financial effort. Maxifoot explains.
After Florentino Perez refused, Jose Mourinho asked to loan Emmanuel Adebayor. Because he wasn’t really dependent on Karim Benzema. For Special One, it was an honor to train Eto’o and Drogba, two shallow beasts.
“Drogba and Eto’o, Mamma Mia, what two players! One is like the other! For me, it was a pleasure to be able to channel these two shallow beasts. They are killers, as they say in England, like no other,” says Jose Mourinho on FIFA at Internet: “They both have an unruly personality and a winning mentality that is hard to find in other players.”
