Revealed - Jose Mourinho's pre-game ritual

Jose Mourinho Double

Marca has run with some quotes this morning from an interview the Portuguese boss gave to a Japanese magazine.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is arguably the most fascinating football manager in the game.

His passion and intrigue for what he does is undoubted and when he speaks, people tend to shut up and pay attention because, most of the time, he’s always got something worthwhile to say.

He’s a very charismatic coach on the touchline and he’s revealed what he does before each game to give himself some inner strength.

“Before a game, in my room, I open the Bible and read from a chapter for a couple of minutes. It always gives me a positive feeling,” he’s quoted as saying as per Marca.

It’s a little glimpse into his mindset in relation to a subject that many of us take for granted.

Any top flight boss around Europe reading the comments will probably now scramble to find their own Bible, in the hope that it can bring them a fraction of the success that Mourinho has experienced.
