José Mourinho ''This book is true to reality because it includes those who truly know me: my players''.

This in depth biography finally opens the door to the changing room, getting behind the scenes and showing the background to Mourinho's success.

Contains handwritten messages from 40 of some of the great figures of football, such as Christiano Ronaldo, Didier Drogba, Petr Cech, Frank Lampard, Maradona, Zico and Sir Alex Ferguson.

This is not just another book about José Mourinho, as proved by the valuable list of exclusive participants it includes. Through this book we discover how he gets along with club presidents, how he is looked upon and respected by his opponents, and how he has a great charisma. But, above all, we meet the real José Mourinho through episodes told by countless players he has coached over the years. A remarkable set of fresh stories showing us the main traits of the famous Portuguese coach: ambitious, communicative, brotherly, disciplinarian, forthright, motivational and organiser. In training and in the matches.

Sir Alex Ferguson ''When I had the chance to know José Mourinho better, it was during the moments after the games. In the company of a bottle of wine, we shared some amusing situations. He laughs about himself, he doesn't take himself too seriously, and he's got a great sense of humour. I'd tease him, provoke him, and he'd play along. On several occasions, after the games, we sat and relaxed talking about different things, other than the competition.''
