For any aspiring coaches out there, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho should be a decent source of inspiration.
Like or loathe his personality – and yes, he does boil the p*ss of plenty with his antics – Mourinho is one of the most successful and tactically astute coaches of the millennium.
He initially rose to prominence after inspiring Porto to a remarkable Champions League triumph before leading Chelsea to back-to-back Premier League titles.
An outstanding treble with Inter followed, plus further league titles with Real Madrid and another at Chelsea.
His attention to detail is striking and the Portuguese recently offered an insight into how he prepares his training sessions.

Dean Ashton’s career was cruelly cut short.
Fair play to the Brazil fan dressed as a sticker.
This is outstanding.
Five penalties were given, but only three scored.
His free-kicks alone were worth the entrance fee.
Juan Carlos Valeron was a true footballing artist.
Unexpected from Argentina’s main man.
Now we’re truly underway.
Some high praise indeed for the new Leeds boss.
