Jose Mourinho

How often is it in football that an entire stadium's attention lingers as much on the touchline as it does the pitch? Jose Mourinho is one of the most compelling characters in the game - not just a master tactician but the closest thing the sport has to a rock star, stirring fans both home and away into fits in excitement with his theatrical leaps, gesturing and knee slides from the technical area. When he arrived at Chelsea in June 2004, at his first press conference, he anointed himself the "Special One". Modest he may not be, but his spectacular resume and bulging trophy cabinet makes it impossible to argue otherwise. Mixing tactical theory with psychology, his unique management style, honed under the watchful eye of the great late Bobby Robson, has brought success to every club he has coached at. He's won the UEFA Champions League twice, with Porto and Inter Milan, as well as domestic titles in Spain, England, Italy and Portugal.
