Chelsea F.C. ~ José Pralineho

Introduction: (I know, I know, but he was influential) José Mourinho is a Portuguese football manager and former football player, who was the manager of Chelsea. He first moved to moved to there in 2004 and won the Premier League title with a record 95 points (the club’s first league title in 50 years) and the League Cup in his first season. In his second year Chelsea retained the Premier League and in 2006–07 he took the club to an FA Cup and League Cup double, though they finished as league runners-up. Mourinho left Chelsea in September 2007, amidst reports of a rift with club owner Roman Abramovich.

Mourinho has also been a part of social initiatives and charity work, helping with a youth project, bringing Israeli and Palestinian children together through football and donating his “lucky” jacket to Tsunami Relief, earning £22,000 for the charity.
