And the special one keeps making headlines
Jose Mourinho is the master of the soundbite, the king of the one-liner and prince of the peculiar/humorous analogy.
He’s be in fine form analogy-wise so far this season and has already come up with a whole new batch of classics – including banging on about horses on Monday night.
But what’s he on about? And how would less inventive managers have put it?
Here’s some of our favourite Jose-isms, and what we think it all means:
1) Tooled up
What he said: ‘The only thing I can bring more to win was a Black and Decker. A Black and Decker to destroy the [West Ham] wall.’
What he meant: We threw everything at West Ham – there’s nothing else we could have done.
How another manager might have put it: That was frustrating – we gave it our all.
