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. 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 manager of 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. Further Anatomy of a Winner is an intelligent, analytical and now fully updated account of the life and psychology of one of the greatest football managers.
