    The making of Mourinho

    33:41

    Jose Mourinho divides opinion. He’s won European titles, multiple Premier Leagues, Primeira Ligas, Scudetto, and a La Liga in an honours list that boasts 19 major trophies in as many years in management.But his self-confidence, temperament, and philosophy have brought detractors. It’s nearly a decade since he won the Champions League and five years since he won the league, bringing questions over whether the 57-year-old is now a manager past his prime.He is one of only five managers to have won the European Cup with two different teams, and could yet do something unprecedented and win it with a third.Despite coaching last season’s Champions League runners-up, a victory with Tottenham would be on par with the level of shock that wins with Porto and Inter.Conor Pope, Chris Flanagan and Seb Stafford-Bloor look at Mourinho's history in the competition, and his task at Spurs.Buy the magazine: https://www.fourfourtwo.com/features/mag-mourinho-vs-world-plus-mane-mendy-kovacic-iniesta-rio-baptista-efl-old-boys-and-moreSubscribe to FourFourTwo magazine: https://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/fftpod20/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    How Raheem Sterling proved everyone wrong

    44:51

    Adoration doesn’t come along easily. No one knows that better than Raheem Sterling. Vilified and criticised, there was a time when, despite being the most exciting young English talent in a generation, he was also one of the most unpopular footballers in the country.Those days are behind him now. Not only has he progressed on the pitch to become one of the best players in the world, he has spoken out on social issues, including press ethics and racism, to become one of the game’s most widely respected figures.How did he change? Or did he change us? The man himself reveals all in the forthcoming issue of FourFourTwo.Conor Pope speaks to Chris Flanagan and Hunter Godson about going to meet Sterling, and to Steven McInerney, the man behind the Man City YouTube channel Esteemed Kompany, about one of the greatest club sides this country has ever seen – and the role Raheem Sterling has had in shaping that.Order the magazine: https://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/outdoor-and-leisure/fourfourtwo-magazine-back-issues/fourfourtwo-autumn-2019/Subscribe to the magazine: https://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/fftpodcast19/Watch Esteemed Kompany: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMxNPuhwTVMFkVoRjlARtaQ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
