Here is a look at Jose Mourinho’s greatest XI in history consisting of only Real Madrid and Chelsea stars, including Ronaldo and Drogba.
Jose may have lost his job as a Tottenham manager on Monday, but his legacy as one of the best football managers in football history will live on.
Jose Mourinho as well all know is one of the most successful football managers in football history, quite a rare breed. The Portuguese famously led underdogs Porto to Champions League success, before bagging Inter Milan a historic treble, and then won the La Liga with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid. In fact, Jose has had one hell of a career.
Now with 2077 games as a head coach under his belt, Transfermarkt has shared an image of Mourinho’s greatest XI.
In a 4-3-3 formation, Petr Cech starts in goal to be joined in the defense by former Chelsea teammates John Terry, Ricardo Carvalho, and Paulo Ferreira. Real Madrid left-back Marcelo completes the backline.
At the center of the park are former Blues stars Frank Lampard and Michael Essien alongside ex-Real Madrid man Xabi Alonso.
While Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a brilliant 168 goals in only 164 games under Mourinho at Real Madrid, joins Chelsea legend Didier Drogba and his old Los Blancos teammate Angel Di Maria in the attack.
That’s Jose Mourinho’s greatest XI according to Transfermarkt, though, they missed quite a few big names here.
Names such as William Gallas, Javier Zanetti, Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Claude Makelele, Paul Pogba, Wayne Rooney, Mesut Ozil, Romelu Lukaku, Karim Benzema, Samuel Eto’o, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Eden Hazard could make a strong claim in this line-up.
