Has Manchester United Forced Jose Mourinho To Go Soft?

Ethan Tait

Jose Mourinho has been eccentric as anyone throughout his prolific managerial career, which has spread across 4 countries and 7 clubs, winning trophies and making new enemies with anyone who disrespects him. 

His favorite person to hate is the Arsenal manager and perpetual underachiever, Arsene Wenger.

Regarding the Arsenal man, Mourinho says:

I think he is one of these people who is a voyeur. He likes to watch other people. There are some guys who, when they are at home, have a big telescope to see what happens in other families. He speaks, speaks, speaks about Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho

In all honesty, Wenger does look like a watcher. I contribute that to his lankiness and his cheeky little smile.

When at the helm at Chelsea or Real Madrid, Jose Mourinho had choice words for anyone and everyone, especially big rivals. He looked to make things awkward, unsettle his opponents, and be that one prick on the playground that nobody likes.

I was always excited for his press conferences, waiting to give a sly dig at someone’s missus or produce some profound riddle like a troll waiting under the bridge.

He’s also never been afraid to advertise his greatness or how much football should be thanking him.

Please don’t call me arrogant, but I’m European champion and I think I’m a special one.

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is that bloke at the pub that thinks he can bed any woman in the place, but little do they know he’s compensating for a lack of something in his pants.

Whether he’s small or not, Jose Mourinho does win wherever he goes; that’s undisputed.


But ever since his appointment at United and the reward of his dream job, Mourinho has been less flamboyant in the press and cordial to Pep Guardiola.

What happens next? Mourinho in a minivan in a suburb of Manchester?

Being under the watchful eye of Sir Alex Ferguson and the Glazer family has reduced the outlandish behavior.

At Real Madrid, Inter Milan, and Chelsea, they couldn’t care less how the Portuguese handled his press conferences and his on field antics.

Fiorentino Perez was too busy picking the starting XI to care, Inter was just happy to capture the treble, and Roman Abramovich is a Russian thug, what Mourinho did was a lot worse than what he’s already done.

Manchester United has killed the outrageous spirit of a great manager because of the United name. The ownership wants to save money by not exchanging jerseys and restrain Jose Mourinho. Is the renaming of Old Trafford next?

Fortunately for football fans, Mourinho cannot be restrained by the bureaucracy forever even Manchester United.
