The Special One

Okay, it's only another Champions League title (can it be described that way?), but my opinion of Jose Mourinho have sky rocketed after Inter won the Champions League this weekend.

The "Special One" can certainly be described that way now.  Let's look at some reasons why.

He has generated success with three different clubs, winning the Champions League with Porto and now Inter and the EPL twice with Chelsea.

He won the Champions League with Porto, who really cannot be described as being one of top European clubs.

He is only the third coach to win the Champions League (or European Cup) with two different teams.

He has had success with a smaller club like Porto and has matched or exceeded expectations at big clubs like Chelsea and Inter.

And here's the thing, if he does go to Real Madrid, I fully expect he will win the league and likely the Champions League there as well.

In an earlier blog, I asked who was the better manager, Ferguson, Mourinho or Wenger.  I would now have to vote for Jose.  What about you?
