TWO LEGENDS of football.
José Mourinho has had quite a fall from grace as of late. He has been fired from his past three jobs (Chelsea, Manchester United, Spurs), and it seems as though his day at the top of the managerial food chain is done.
But when doing punditry on Sky, he is the same charismatic man from back in the day, where everything he says is box-office and his insight into the game is truly fascinating.
He recently, in an interview with The Times, opened up about his time at Sky Sports, specifically what it was like with Roy Keane and Graeme Souness.
He said: "I tell in a soft way. I like to listen to the opinions of people with different experiences.
"For example, when I sat with Roy Keane and Graeme Souness in the same match, they have experiences as top players that I didn’t have. I have experiences as a coach that they didn’t have.
"They know what it is to play Champions League final as a player. I know what it is to play Champions League final on the touchline, as a coach. I learn with them. They learn with me. I like that a lot."
José had another fond interaction with an Irishman recently, as he chatted with master impressionist Conor Moore, who he said did such a spot on impression of him that he couldn't tell who it was.
After being let go by Spurs, he was recently appointed as the manager of A.S. Roma, where he will take over from the beginning of next season.
Roy Keane himself has relished the chance to voice his footballing opinions every week, and is a clear highpoint of Sky's coverage of the sport.
