Jose Mourinho: ‘This is my World Best XI’


The Manchester United boss was asked to pick his World best starting XI.

So he chose 16 players.

At the inaugural ‘The Best Fifa Awards’, football’s world governing body asked Jose Mourinho to pick his World XI

Having won just about every trophy in club football, Jose certainly knows a lot about Football.

However, this strange set of players points to a line up that could no doubt ‘park the bus’

It’s an answer that I’ve always refused to give and will continue to,” Mourinho explained. “So many players gave their blood and soul when they played for me, how can I name some and forget others?”

Fifa asked Jose Mourinho to pick what he thought is best eleven players he had coached throughout his career

He instead chose 16.

“Vitor Baia, Petr Cech, Julio Cesar… how can I choose just one?,” Mourinho implored. “Jorge Costa, Ricardo Carvalho, Marco Materazzi, Lucio, Walter Samuel, John Terry… how can I choose one?”

He added more: “Michael Essien, Wesley Sneijder, Nemanja Matic, Costinha, Maniche, Xabi Alonso, Frank Lampard…”

Not one striker.
