Jose Mourinho married his wife, Matilde “Tami” Faria, in 1989. He met his Angolan born wife when they were teenagers in Setubal, Portugal.
Their first child, daughter Matilde, was born in 1996 and they had their first son, Jose Mario Jr, who became a free agent after leaving Fulham in 2017.
Apart from his native Portuguese, Mourinho speaks Spanish, Italian, French, Catalan and English to varying degrees of fluency.
Mourinho was as midfielder in his playing career. He played throughout the various pyramids of the Portuguese leagues. His career lasted from a very brief period from 1980 to 1987.
Mourinho started out under Sir Bobby Robson and Louis van Gaal at Barcelona and Benfica as their assistants.
In 2000, he was appointed as the head coach for Benfica for a brief stint. He then coached Uniao de Leiria.
He joined FC Porto in 2002 and shot to fame, winning the Primeira Liga twice, a Taca de Portugal, the UEFA Cup and the UEFA Champions League.
His record at the Portuguese club piqued the interest of Chelsea. He won two Premier League titles, a FA Cup, and two League Cups in his three seasons with Chelsea before leaving in 2007.
His next destination was Inter Milan. He won the Serie A in his first season and led the club to their European treble in 2010. He was later named as the FIFA Coach of the Year.
Mourinho joined Real Madrid after the 2010 season and delivered success there as well. He won the La Liga with a record-breaking tally in his debut season. He also won a Copa del Rey and a Supercopa de Espana.
Mourinho returned to Chelsea for his second stint. He won a PL title and a League Cup in this stint but was sacked for a poor run.
He then went on to join Manchester United. At Old Trafford, he clinched the UEFA Europa League, League Cup and FA Community Shield in his first season, before being dismissed in 2018.
He later succeeded Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs in 2019.
Sponsorships and Endorsements

Endorsement deals include Heineken, Hubolt, BT Sport, EA Sports, BT Sport, Atlantis hotels and Lipton Tea.
These deals have dubbed him as the “most marketable manager in 2020.”
After being sacked from United, prior to joining Tottenham, Mourinho joined UK broadcaster Sky Sports as a pundit on their Premier League coverage in 2019.
The Portuguese has an unofficial biography written on him, O Vencedor – De Setubal a Stamford Bridge (The Winner – from Setúbal to Stamford Bridge)
Despite it being a best seller, Mourinho did not authorise the biography and attempted, unsuccessfully, to prevent the book from being published.
Jose 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.
He had donated his “lucky” jacket to Tsunami Relief, earning $30,000 for the charity to aid victims of the tsunami.
Since his appointment in 2014, Mourinho has acted as a Global Ambassador of the United Nations’ World Food Programme.
