In just a few years, José Mourinho has proved himself to be one of the most successful and controversial of football managers.

He arrived in London in the summer of 2004, to take on the role of the manager at Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich’s Chelsea FC. His impact on English football was immediate, with his unmistakeable self-confidence, style, drive and ambition. Now he has moved on to Inter Milan where, once again, he has become the focus of media attention. But how did his career start? What led him to becoming one of the great enigmas of World Football?  This fascinating book charts his rise from relatively humble beginnings as assistant coach to Sir Bobby Robson, to become the most sought-after club manager in Europe. Readers will gain an insight into Mourinho’s management skills, as well as his whole footballing philosophy, and his approach to motivating his players. Mourinho himself writes of his move to Roman Abramovich's Chelsea FC and of approaches by other clubs; his ‘mind games’ with Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United are knocked out of Europe; and his fears for his personal safety and that of his family after receiving a death threat on the eve of what should have been the biggest night of his life. Long-term family friend, Portuguese journalist Luís Lourenço guides us through the formative years in Mourinho's coaching career, as he returns to Portugal from Barcelona at the turn of the millennium and embarks on the remarkable four-year journey which will lead him to Chelsea FC. A journey which includes short-lived yet turbulent spells at Portuguese giants Benfica and minnows União de Leiria, and culminates in a night of unforgettable glory for FC Porto and José Mourinho as they are crowned Champions of Europe.

    Really enjoy reading about polarising figures. The 2 Mourinho books i read came out quite close to each other. Both good reads, and little different. One of them, I apologise. This one, or the one with Patrick Barclay detail the CL in 2004, and i remember specifically the Semi Final 2nd Leg. I watched that game with admiration. So was in tuned with the book(s).

    Bir kitap ancak bu kadar piç edilebilir... Yanlış çeviri, yarım kalan cümleler, abuk sabuk ifadeler, olmayan terimler, vs. ne isterseniz var. Zaten kitap da matah bir kitap sayılmaz (aman da ne kadar başarılı olduk, o sırada da ne kadar duygulandık dışında bir derinlik yok kitapta) ama Türkçeleştirme sırasında iyice fantastik hale gelmiş :(

    It's a very good book. The continual input from Mourinho himself makes it something worth reading. You really get an insight into the way he works, and his principles of life, and football.
