José Mourinho ist eine Ausnahmeerscheinung in der Welt des Fußballs und der erfolgreichste Fußballtrainer seiner Generation. Das Buch zeigt die verschiedenen Gesichter Mourinhos und erklärt, warum ihn die einen bewundern und die anderen verachten – und wie er alle Waffen der Psychologie wirkungsvoll einsetzt. Der kluge Taktiker Mourinho ist ein Provokateur, der über Grenzen geht. Doch kennen Sie auch die andere Seite des Erfolgstrainers? Die des einfühlsamen Menschen, der ein so enges Band mit seinen Spielern knüpfen kann wie kein anderer? Und des loyalen Familienmenschen, der einem Schiedsrichter während einer Krebserkrankung in seiner schwersten Zeit hilft? Diese Biografie erklärt, wie aus Mourinho "The Special One" wurde: Wie er in einer kleinen Stadt in seiner Heimat Portugal eine Weltkarriere startete, danach mit Superstars wie Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic und Arjen Robben Meisterschaften, Pokale und zweimal die Champions League gewann – und nach wie vor die Fans weltweit begeistert.
Der Fußballexperte Tobias Escher porträtiert in diesem Buch elf Trainer, die den Fußball in den vergangenen Jahren maßgeblich geprägt und verändert haben. Dazu zählen natürlich Pep Guardiola und José Mourinho, aber auch Jürgen Klopp, Joachim «Jogi» Löw, Antonio Conte und viele mehr. Sie alle haben mit neuen taktischen Ideen und Strategien Maßstäbe gesetzt. Escher erklärt ihre Trainingsmethoden und Spielphilosophien, beschreibt ihre tägliche Arbeit und erzählt, welche Menschen sie beeinflusst haben. Auch weniger bekannte, aber sehr beeindruckende Trainer wie Maurizio Sarri oder Marcelo Bielsa stellt Escher vor. In der Gegenüberstellung der innovativsten und mutigsten Fußballtrainer unserer Zeit eröffnet sich ein vollkommen neuer Blick auf den besten Sport der Welt. Und so findet Escher Antworten auf Fragen, die jeden Fußballfan umtreiben: Warum haben Guardiola und Mourinho mehr Titel gewonnen als jeder andere Trainer? Wie hat Klopp Dortmund ins Champions-League-Finale geführt? Und was hat Löw mit der Nationalmannschaft gemacht? Es ist kein Zufall, dass die erfolgreichsten Trainer der vergangenen Jahre auch die taktisch klügsten waren; ein guter Trainer kann den Unterschied machen zwischen einer guten und einer sehr guten Mannschaft.

A soccer player is more than the sum of his parts: endurance, speed, shooting technique, passing technique, and many more. All of these factors need to be turned into one system to create good players. Traditional training theory doesn’t achieve that because each skill is trained individually. This is why the concept of Tactical Periodization has become the preferred training theory for many of the current most successful soccer coaches: Pep Guardiola, José Mourinho, Diego Simeone, André Villas-Boas, and many others train according to these principles. By creating match-like situations in practice, players learn to link their technical, tactical, and athletic abilities to match intelligence. They will learn to transfer their skills to soccer matches and they can improve endurance, technique, and tactics all at the same time while enjoying the practice sessions more. For this book, the author has evaluated and analyzed hundreds of training sessions and has tailored exercises to specific demands. All exercises are performed with a ball so that players learn to apply each skill to the game. Every coach will find numerous exercises in this book to help them create better and more efficient practice sessions so they can improve their players’ and the team’s performance. With Tactical Periodization, your team will become better and be successful on the next match day!

Mourinho is a beautiful illustrated book which is both a sumptuous celebration of The Special One's managerial career so far, and an enigmatic insight into his unique brand of football wisdom and philosophy. In the legendary manager's very first book, and in his own images and captions, Jose Mourinho charts the peaks and troughs of the opening fifteen years of what has been a stellar rise to the summit of the global game. Through more than 120 personally selected images (some of which are exclusive to the book), fans will relish an intimate and unmissable opportunity to understand and further appreciate this giant of the sport.
When Jose Mourinho realised as a teenager that he was never going to be a great player, he decided he was going to become the best coach in the world. At 47, many would say that he's done that - probably including Mourinho, who has called himself the Special One. From translator and assistant to Sir Bobby Robson at Barcelona, to Champions League-winning manager at Porto and on to turning Chelsea into one of Europe's most successful clubs, followed by Champions League victory at Inter-Milan, and now ready to deliver the same at Real Madrid, Jose Mourinho's ascent has been rapid. Backed by Abramovich's billions, Mourinho weeded out those not fully committed to his methods, made several astute signings and improved the performances of many Chelsea stars. The result: in his first season in 2005, Chelsea won both the Premier League title and the Carling Cup, followed by another title the following season. Mourinho then left for Inter-Milan where he delivered a treble in his second season in charge, and is now tasked with bringing Real Madrid's 'Galacticos' the silverware they crave. Patrick Barclay, award-winning football correspondent of The Times, has written an intelligent, analytical and concise account of the life and psychology of Mourinho. To develop this portrait, he has interviewed those who have worked closely with him, such as Sir Bobby Robson and Louis van Gaal, as well as some of the players who provide a revealing insight into what has made Mourinho the most successful manager in the world.
