In a surprising return (Ok not really), the ‘Special One’ Jose Mourinho is back into his old ways boosting his own self-ego. As Moruinho feels that he should be the front-runner for al the major [Individual] accolades for 2010, the Portuguese coach went on to remind the people all he has done for Inter Milan in the 2009-2010 season.
However, with Vicente del Bosque looking to be the man to take home the FIFA Ballon d’Or award for leading Spain to the World Cup, Mourinho went on to say how it is unfair to give the award to the Spaniard,
“Me, I’ve made my choice. 11 months’ work, 57 matches played, three titles including the most important of all, ‘THE’ tournament – the Champions League. I have won everything, I could not do any more than that, equally so for the players.”
In addition to speaking about the injustice he feels how the award is distributed, Mouinho also talked about how it was unfair for Wesley Sneijder’s name not being called into the top 3 candidates,
“If the winner is Andres Iniesta, who unhappily was not able to play for the first five months of the year because of injury, but after that played six matches and scored a goal in South Africa [the winner in the World Cup final], then anything can happen in the year of a World Cup final and the rest counts for nothing.”
I definitely think Mourinho deseres the award for the joy he brought to Inter Milan. Winning the Coppa Italia, Serie A and the Champions League is no easy task and having done so in just his short time with the club is incredible. Mourinho has also transformed Real Madrid into a dominate team as well and despite their showing against Barcelona, there is no question that Madrid is looking a lot better than last year’s squad.
Think Moruinho should win the FIFA Ballon d’Or for coaches? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
