Let’s talk briefly about Mourinho’s coaching career.


José started as an assistant coach with Bobby Robson, his main function was to translate the Englishman’s press conferences. After the arrival of Louis van Gaal, he had more freedom and worked in the Barça double.


His first independent job as coach began in September 2000. Mourinho took charge of the great “Benfica”, but managed to hold only 11 matches. He resigned in December because of a disagreement with the management. Do not forget that the betting company Bet ss offers bets on the championship of Portugal. You can make various predictions on the company’s site.


In July 2001, he took charge of the mid-table club “Leiria” and lifted the club to 4th place in the table in six months. 


In January 2002, “Porto” appointed Mourinho as coach. He took the club fifth in the table and finished the season in 3rd place. In 2003, he won the championship, the Cup and the UEFA Cup, and sensationally became the winner of the Champions League in 2004.


In June 2004, the Portuguese became “Chelsea” coach and called himself “The Special One” at his first press conference. He became one of the best coaches of the Londoners, winning 6 trophies with them in 3+ years, playing in ½ of the Champions League twice.

From June 2008 to May 2010, Mourinho was Inter’s coach. With Milan, he achieved outstanding results: a treble in the 2009/10 season, a total of 5 trophies in 2 seasons. The peak of his success was the 2-0 victory over “Bayern Munich” in the final of the Champions League against his teacher van Gaal.


José moved from “Chelsea” to “Real Madrid” in May 2010. In 3 seasons in Madrid, he put up a fight against “Barça”, scored 100 points in the championship in 2011/12, won three trophies and was in the semifinals of the Champions League three times in a row. The last season was a failure and Mourinho flew back to London in May 2013. If you log in to Betss, you can also place bets on La Liga. This will increase your chances of winning.


After his return to “Chelsea”, he took third place and led the team to the ½ of the Champions League. In his second season, he took gold and the League Cup. He was dismissed from the club for poor results in December 2015. 

Manchester United

In May 2016, the Portuguese became the coach of “MU”. A year later, he won the Europa League with the “Devils”, as well as the League Cup and the Super Cup in England. In December 2018, he was fired after unsuccessful matches.


His period with “Spurs” from November 2019 to April 2021 was a failure: there was not a single trophy, the departure of “Dynamo Zagreb” in the Europa League.


Since May 2021, Mourinho has been working in Rome. Despite finishing sixth in Serie A, the club won the Conference League last season. The “Wolves” are now in sixth position, with -3 points from the Champions League zone.
