How to win everything, Jose way

Posted: September 21, 2007 in Tips from champions

Winning is not everthing but the only thing. That famous quote sums up Jose Mourinho. The former manager of Chelsea fc has parted company with the london club. The man has been on a roll winning trophies year in year out for the last 4 years.

Jose MourinhoWhat made him so successful? Mourinho believed in his own divine powers, thats why he billed himself as the “special one”. I dont think this is arrogance in him, its self belief. If he never thought himself that way I dont think he would have been this succeful. His second reason was, the man knew how to get the best out of his players. He demanded 100% from them in return he rewarded them with praise and his support. He was a strict disciplinarian those who did not tow the line were quicky shoved aside.

His other talents

Apart from being a good manager the man was good with word.

“Wenger has a real problem with us and I think he is what you call in England a voyeur. He is someone who likes to watch other people. There are some guys who, when they are at home, have this big telescope to look into the homes of other people and see what is happening. Wenger must be one of them – and it is a sickness.”

He had no pity on his fellow managers. “Three years without a Premiership title? I don’t think I would still be in a job.”Chiding lack of success by Rafa Benitez, Manager of a rival team. You might think this is poor sportsmanship, but should you care for a person whose success means your loss.
