‘Special One’ Mourinho’only once’ lost in tears, “There were Kaka, Ronaldo and Ramos…”
The Special One’ director Jose Mourinho also had tears.
The British ‘Sports Bible’ 크크크벳said on the 26th (Korean time), “Coach Mourinho shed tears only once after a defeat during his career. He is regarded as one of the greatest managers in football history, lifting numerous trophies at various clubs. 20 years of career A total of 27 victories have been achieved during this period.”
“Coach Mourinho admitted that he shed tears after losing to Bayern Munich in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the 2011-12 season when he was leading Real Madrid. I had to watch the scene where I lost in the kick,” he added.
According to the media, manager Mourinho said, “Unfortunately, that’s football. Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Sergio Ramos… these three are perfect monsters in football. There is no doubt about it, but they are also human beings. It was a day when I cried hard,” he recalled.
“Head coach Aitor Karanca and I stopped the car in front of the house and cried. It was even harder because we were the best. If I had to choose the worst in my career, it would be dropping out at Real Madrid. (The loss) brought me down,” he explained.
After leaving Real Madrid in 2013, Mourinho had a rough day. He returned to Chelsea (2013-2015), joined Manchester United (2016-2018), and continued to challenge Tottenham Hotspur (2019-2021). However, he kept his head down as he 100% lived up to the expectations of being the ‘Special One’.
Manager Mourinho, who was like that, is reviving in Italy. Two years ago, he joined AS Roma and continues to rebuild his reputation. Last season, he became the champion of the UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) and won the championship in five years.
The challenge continues. Roma are competing for fifth place in Italy’s Serie A and have advanced to the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League (UEL). Coach Mourinho and Roma are spurring to win the UEL and advance to the UCL next season.
