Jose Mourinho – The Marmite Manager

The facts say that Jose Mourinho's record of success is up there with the very best. So what is it that makes Mr Mourinho "the special one"? There are probably lots of answers, but he unquestionably adheres to the KISS principle - Keep It Simple Stupid. No square pegs in round holes. No fancy, complicated tactics. Play players who are talented, but who have to work hard, be disciplined and do their job. Compact space and make it difficult for the opposition to score. Make the best of attacking set pieces. Get the ball into the opposition box where goals are scored. Understand and exploit the opposition weaknesses and nullify their strengths.
