José Mourinho joins Real Madrid. Is he really that good?

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

José Mourinho joins Real Madrid, and quicker than you san say sangria you see clear signs of some panic in Barcelona on the transfer-market. Fabregas next in. And after that? “Watch out – José is coming to Spain!” Well, is he that good?

Yes, I believe so, he is without doubt the best coach around at this moment looking at his track-record in Porto, Chelsea and Internazionale. And I am sure that Real Madrid will win one of the two titles that counts in Spain next seasaon, the La Liga or Champions League. But the greatest ever? No way, José.

In my own eyes, Italian Arrigo Sacchi is the best modern coach ever, beating Rinus Michels closely, the Dutchman behind Total Football with Cruyff as the key-player in the 70’s. Sacchi started the revolution at Parma that made them a force in Italy and Europe when he, in the middle of the 80’s, took this tiny side from serie C1 to being three points from promotion to serie A, all within a year.

Sacchi’s Parma knocked out AC Milan in the Italian Cup that season and Silvio Berlusconi acted quickly and brought Sacchi to Milan.

Few thought that Berlusconi did anything right in bringing in the unexperienced and attacking-minded coach but he never looked back.

Sacchi led AC Milan to back-to-back European Cup (Champions League) titles in a club side that probably played the most beautiful football ever seen, led by van Basten, Gullit and Rijkaard. It was a new style of attacking football with a defensive midfielder as one of the corner stones.

In many ways, Sacchi brought back the attacking football to Europe. He then took over Italy and led them to the World Cup silver in 2004.

Like Sacchi, Mourinho has no big career behind him as a player. Mourinho is never shy of an answer but if he wants, he can use Sacchi’s classic answer to those who questions him: “A jockey doesn’t have to have been born a horse”.

Who do you think is the best coach in the world?

FC Internazionale and Chelsea clashes the last 16 Champions League round on Wednesday

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

José Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti goes head to head at San Siro when FC Internazionale and Chelsea clashes in their first match in the last 16 Champions League round on Wednesday.

On the pitch we expects a fierce battle with Eto’o and Drogba as key-players up front in their sides. We pay 6.00 in odds on Drogba to score first. Chelsea was knocked out by Manchester United in the last 16 round last season and holds Chelsea as favorite to go through and put more European misery in the Internazionale corridors.

Over two matches, and having the advantage to play at home in the second match, it looks like Ancelotti will have the last word over his rival Mourinho.
