In 2004, Jose Mourinho called himself 'A Special One' when he entered the Premier League as a Chelsea manager. After a successful stint with the Blues, Jose went on to manage Inter Milan and Real Madrid followed by a second stint with Chelsea before taking over at Manchester United and then Spurs.

Asked how he would describe himself, Mourinho told Tencent Sports in an interview: "The 'Experienced One.' I am very experienced. Basically everything that happens to me in football now is deja vu, is something that has happened to me before.

"There are jobs that you need a special fitness condition like a football player. A 40-year-old does not have the same potential like a 20-or 30-year old, unless you're (AC Milan's Swedish striker) Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"Coaching you just need your brain, an accumulation of experiences and knowledge can only make you better."
