Jose Mourinho has coached some top talents in his time and he's never been shy to voice his opinion on certain footballers.
Here, he's mentioned the first word he associates with some of his favourite proteges or even players that he has admired over the years.
🏴 John Terry
This makes sense, seeing as though Chelsea fans dubbed him "Captain. Leader. Legend."
🇨🇮 Didier Drogba
One of the greatest African players in the history of the beautiful game. Drogba struck the winning penalty in the 2012 Champions League final to deliver Chelsea their only European Cup crown.
🇬🇭 Michael Essien
Mourinho probably sees Ghanaian powerhouse Michael Essien as a son, and he was certainly a favourite of his at Stamford Bridge, starring as a dynamic box to box midfielder.
🇵🇹 Cristiano Ronaldo
CR7 has scored quite a few of them in his career. In fact, he's the all-time goal-scorer in Real Madrid and Portugal history.
🇦🇷 Lionel Messi
There's no one quite like Messi.
🇪🇸 Diego Costa
Love him or hate him, you'll always know that Diego Costa is around. The burly Spanish striker had his fair share of confrontations with opponents, especially London rivals Arsenal, but he's the exactly the type of player you want on your side.
