A Short Biography of José Mourinho – One of the Greatest Coaches in Soccer History (part 2)

Jose Mourinho is widely regarded as “The Special One” in the football industry in which he has led numerous top European teams to national and European honours with his acerbic, his unique character and self-confident style.
In May 2016, he was given a new contract by Manchester United after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013. For 3 years, Manchester United team had struggled to live up to their previous standard and glory.
With Jose Mourinho as a head coach, Manchester began to make some progress from the very first season although they still finished a modest 6th place.
Fortunately, they made progress in the following season. Manchester United won the Europa Cup and the League Cup final in 2016/17, finished at 2nd place in the league in 2017/18 season.
Things went smoothly until the fall outs between Jose Mourinho and big star players – notably Paul Pogba over the summer of 2018. Although, Mourinho is considered as an excellent tactician, he has sometimes been in rough path as being criticised for his emphasising defensive strengths rather than encouraging attacking play. With which, Mourinho has often been caught in middle of spats with other managers, referees, journalists and players during his career.
He is the man who is not afraid to speak his mind – even if it upsets others.

What is his salary?

The coach earns approximately 15 million pounds per season but rumors said that he demands a bigger compensation package based on the great performance and success of the team under his strong leadership.
