The football manager is "enemy of football"

 Q:   Ask a Question about The football manager is "enemy of football"       
Jose Mourinho was a superb manager when he was with FC Porto or Chelsea or Inter Milan. In his career as a manger, he brought the teams much of the name and fame needed. Many players excelled to their career heights under him.

He introduced many new players to the football world. But one problem about him was he was unable to control his anger or you can say sometimes anxiety which landed him to troubles many times. He has often remained as a controversial figure in football.

On 6th October 2004, he was informed by the medical team that the team player Adrian Mutu was not fit to play the World Cup qualifier due to knee injury. When Jose stopped him from playing, Adrian accused Jose for preventing him from pla ying. But later Adrian was caught in drug case and banned on 29th October 2004.

In a match between Chelsea and FC Barcelona in March 2005, he accused Anders Frisk and Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard of breaking FIFA rules as they organised a meeting during the half-time. He said that the referee was biased towards the opponent team and sent his team player out.

Due to this, the referee received death threats and retired early from the game. He was named as “enemy of football” by the UEFA referee's Chief Volker Roth. For this incident in the match, he was banned for two matches and was also fined.

On 2nd June 2005, he once again came in limelight when he was fined £200,000 for his part in the meeting with Ashley Cole in January 2005 breaking the rules. The fine was then reduced to £75,000. In the same year, he said that Arsenal manager was “a voyeur".

Wenger thought over taking legal action but later the two managers chose to settle the incident when Jose asked for forgiveness. On 17th December 2006, after a league match with Everton, he said the player Andrew Johnson was "untrustworthy". The team threatened to take legal action against Mourinho but later Jose apologised.

The latest of his controversies was in August 2009, when he commented on the performance of a Muslim player Sulley Muntari. He said that the player was lacking fitness and energy due to fasting during the month of Ramadan. His comments angered the Muslim leader Mohamed Nour Dachan who gave Jose the advice to talk a little less.
