Mourinho moved to Chelsea the following year and won the Premier League title, the club’s first league title in 50 years, and the League Cup in his first season season.

He began focusing on coaching and impressed with brief but successful managerial periods at Benfica and União de Leiria, taking the latter to their highest ever league finish. 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 were league runners-up. The fall of António de Oliveira Salazar’s Estado Novo regime in April 1974, however, led to the family losing all but a single property in nearby Palmela. He lacked the requisite pace and power to become a professional and chose to focus on becoming a football coach instead. Sir Bobby Robson had been appointed as the new manager of Lisbon club Sporting Clube de Portugal and the Englishman required a local coach with a good command of English to work as his interpreter. Mourinho and his family moved to Barcelona and he gradually became a prominent figure of Barcelona’s staff by translating at press conferences, planning practice sessions, and helping players through tactical advice and analyses of the opposition. Van Gaal saw that his number two had the promise to be more than a skilled assistant. Tell Benfica if they want a first-team coach you will go; if they want an assistant you will stay.” Mourinho was highly critical of Ferreira, whom he had first encountered as his teacher at ISEF and later lambasted the veteran coach by stating, “This could be the story of a donkey who worked for 30 years but never became a horse.” Only weeks after being given the job at Benfica, Mourinho’s mentor, Sir Bobby Robson, offered him the assistant manager’s role at Newcastle United.
