LUCKY? NO, JOSE’S ONE STEP AHEAD
MOURINHO is back and by Wednesday night he was top. My eldest boy said to me that ‘they were lucky!’ I laughed. This idea that serial winners get ‘lucky’ is ludicrous.
It is down to working very very hard at all the right things. And about being clever enough to devise the winning edge. Whether that be a tactical method of playing, a set of serious home advantages, a special quality in an individual player; whatever, the Mourinhos of the world keep building a new edge.
They invent the new way. They don’t follow others.
One of his cleverest attributes is his ability to get under the skin of opponents. He brings down opposition performance as well as raising his own team’s game.
Jose Mourinho always seems to be one step ahead. I think he is a little bit better than ‘lucky’!
