Has there ever been another manager in the history of the game who has had more to say than the self-styled "Special One?"
The 50-year-old Portuguese Man of War is pure box-office entertainment both on and off the pitch, and at no other moment more so than when his lips start moving; although, like everything that Jose Mourinho does in football, each word that comes out of his mouth is carefully picked so as to hit an intended target.
The only surprising thing about the Real Madrid head coach is that he does not have a first-class degree in psychology so brilliantly does he use the media. In addition, he uses his press conferences to his own effect, whether that be to send out a coded message to his own watching players after a match, or perhaps to an opposing manager just prior to a fixture.
And, with the Portuguese currently enduring a particularly combustible season at the Santiago Bernabeu, even compared to what has gone on at his previous clubs, we at the Bleacher Report take a look at Mourinho’s most eye-catching quotes from this campaign.
