SportsTalk December 18th Mourinho talked with The Obi One Podcast. He talked about the reasons why he would not select the best team.
Moderator: Who is the best player you have ever coached?
Mourinho: I refuse to answer such a question because it would be unfair to me. Because sometimes I don’t like it at all, and sometimes it will appear on an app or social media – the best team, and people think I picked the best team. That’s something I’ve always refused to do, and I would say every player gave me everything, gave me their blood, sweat, soul, every player gave me everything and is one of my favorite players. . I don’t agree with people saying your best striker, my best striker? Drogba, Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic…what do you want me to say…I can’t do it. Courtois, Cassie… I really can’t do it, it’s impossible for me and it’s not fair to them. Good signings can be said to be of high quality and price. Sometimes you will get players who are cheap but bring you a lot. Is this signing better than another? I don’t know, I can’t do this. Every player who has given everything for me is mine, the one who is very talented, or the one who is less talented, who scores more goals, who plays more games… It is impossible (selection) .
Mikel joked: I think this is an easy question to answer, that is John Mikel.
Mourinho: You did a good job, a very good job, and brought me a lot of happiness, not just you. . If I remember correctly, your first Champions League game was against Levski Sofia.
