A saint he isn't. And that's what a lot of people love about him. As well as the fact he delivers...time after time and club after club, there is never a dull moment and he knows how to win.
"I am the European champion. I think I am a special one."
"I'm still the special one, for sure. You want to try and succeed in your job like I have done in mine inside three years? You have no chance."
"Like, for example, 'I'm special; I want to win in the first season. I don't care about the power of Manchester United and Arsenal"
"We have top players here and, I'm sorry if it seems a bit arrogant, but we have a top manager."
"If I wanted to have an easy job... I would have stayed at Porto—beautiful blue chair, the UEFA Champions League trophy, God, and after God, me."
"I'm arrogant because it is necessary to be that way in the world of football."
"I am Jose Mourinho, and I don't change—I arrive with all my qualities and my defects."
Say no more. You either love him or hate him. But like Joey Barton, he's not right for United.
