There was a time when Jose and his suave, elegantly cool ways were the talk of the sidelines, his majestic sprint at Old Trafford, his high fashion ways, Jose was indeed the Special One. Then came along Pep, a decent holding midfielder in his day, but now cream of the crop,top of the heap at Camp Nou, wearing the types of well fitted shirt and skinny tie combo that had rarely been seen outside of a Russell Brand TV show. Jose was always going to break.
Mourinho marched up to Barcelona assistant manager Tito Vilanova with pre mediated ear twisting on his mind.. not the old Jose we knew and loved. Back to London with him.
