Jose Mourinho takes a shot at coaches who emphasize ‘philosophy’ but don’t win anything

Jose Mourinho may not be in a managerial job at the moment but he hasn’t tuned down the mind games one bit.

Jose Mourinho hasn’t been in a job since December 2018 when he was sacked as Manchester United manager following an abject 3-1 defeat at Anfield. Before losing his job, Mourinho endured a 18 month spell in the job devoid of trophies.

However, that experience hasn’t seemed to have shaken the Special One’s belief in his methods as he doubled down on the approach that has yielded him 25 major trophies in his career.

Speaking to beIN sports, Mourinho took a shot at the managers who emphasize ‘philosophy’ and end up paying for it with a lack of success.

“Some coaches like to sell the idea of a philosophy, but you have to sell the philosophy after you win. If you win nothing what is the point? If your team plays very well, your team wins, so I don’t like these contradictions we have in football nowadays,” he pointed out.

The jibe was in line with some of his previous criticism aimed at the likes of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who’s much publicised ‘heavy metal football’ approach is yet to yield a single trophy at the club.

Mourinho also went on to detail that he had turned three or four clubs down recently as he was being very picky about the kind of job that he would be entertaining in future.

“I know what I don’t want and that is the reason why I have had to say no to three or four different offers.

“I know what I want, not in terms of a specific club, but the nature of the job, and I am going to be waiting for that,” he said, before revealing that he is keen to re-enter football management in June of 2019.
