Since early childhood Jose was into football, and played it while studying in high school and college. He graduated from the Technical University of Lisbon, earning a degree in Sports Science.

At the beginning of the career, Mourinho worked as an assistant and interpreter for English coach Bobby Robson in the Portuguese clubs Sporting Lisbon and FC Porto. He then followed Robson to Spanish FC Barcelona in 1996, before in 2000 starting his career as the coach of Benfica, but left the club after nine games because of club politics. The season of 2001 – 2002, he trained the Portuguese club União de Leiria, which ended in fourth place in the league, and then he was brought to FC Porto. In 2003, Jose won his first league trophy as FC Porto ended 11 points ahead of Benfica. In addition, the same year the club won the Portuguese Cup and the UEFA Cup.

In the middle of 2010, Mourinho became the coach of Real Madrid, and won the Copa del Rey and Liga BBVA with the club.

In 2013, Mourinho was appointed as Chelsea coach for the second time.

However, on 27th May 2016 it was announced that Jose Mourinho had been appointed as Manchester United’s new manager.
