Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was asked to pick a starting XI of the best players he has managed over the course of his career as manager.
Jose Mourinho refused to name a starting XI but instead mentioned names that have impressed him.
Petr Cech, Ricardo Carvalho, John Terry, Michael Essien, Frank Lampard and Nemanja Matic are Chelsea players that Mourinho revealed gave their blood and soul when they played for him.
“It’s an answer that I’ve always refused to give and will continue to,” Mourinho told FIFA.com.
“So many players gave their blood and soul when they played for me, how can I name some and forget others?
“Vitor Baia, Petr Cech, Julio Cesar… how can I choose just one?
“Jorge Costa, Ricardo Carvalho, Marco Materazzi, Lucio, Walter Samuel, John Terry… how can I choose one?
“Michael Essien, Wesley Sneijder, Nemanja, Constinha, Maniche, Xabi Alonso, Frank Lampard… how can I choose one?
“I don’t think I will ever answer that question because I’ll never forget my brothers in arms.”
