Jose Mourinho – Is he a clueless manager or a genius manager?


Some of you may be thinking the title of this post is complete nonsense. But, is he an clueless manager who does not know what he’s doing? Of course he is not! He is blatantly a tactical genius with outstanding man-management skills! Jose Mourinho is certainly a master of his craft. Having studied the game he has adopted a number of great skills that have allowed him to achieve what he has in the game – including 2 champions league winning medals with Porto and Inter Milan. These achievements would go well on any of our CV’s.

The two-time Chelsea manager is one that loves to play mind games. Sometimes he attempts to disrupt the morale of opposition managers, players or teams with his mischievous messages in the press. An example can be found in his supposed attempts to sign Wayne Rooney at the beginning of the 2013/2014 season from the champions Manchester United, which led to disruption of the Manchester United camp.

Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea side will come up against a  fired up Paris Saint German (PSG) side on the 2nd April 2014 in the quater finals of the Champions League 2013/2014 season and Mourinho has decided to approach the game in a respectful manner by praising his former player Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Perhaps the unavailability of key on-form players such as Nemanja Matic and Samuel Etoo have added to Mourinho feeling slightly wary of the threat of the opposition. We predict a cautious Chelsea side to feature against PSG. They will attempt to grab a goal and keep  the game tight as Jose Mourinho loves to do, however with an attacking combination of Edison Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic it may be difficult for Chelsea to hold on to a draw against them.
