Before he became a world famous manager, Mourinho was a PE teacher in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal.

After leaving college in 1987, he taught PE at a number of primary schools, helping children with different abilities play football.

Jose of the many languages

Managing football teams all over the world has meant that Mourinho has picked up a fair few language skills along the way.

The manager can speak six different languages: Portuguese, English, Spanish, Catalan, Italian and French.

However, it's reported he once got upset when someone called him a "translator".

He said it was insulting to people who are professional translators because he is not fluent in the languages.
