Jose Mourinho celebrates after the 2010 UEFA Champions League final between Internazionale and Bayern Munich at Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid, Spain, May 2010.

Jose Mourinho has worked as a football manager for over two decades and in that time he’s been blessed to call upon some legendary players at some of Europe’s elite clubs – Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Inter…

Mourinho has also won over 20 trophies in his career, including three Premier League titles, two Serie A titles, La Liga, two Champions Leagues and two UEFA Cup/Europa Leagues.

And now, as manager of Roma, Mourinho has guided the club to their first European honour with victory in the Europa Conference League final against Feyenoord in May 2022.

While he may have slipped into caricature at times over recent years, Mourinho is still one of the leading managers of his generation and will be remembered long after his retirement.
