And should Madrid fear failure too once Jose seeks to conquer foreign fields? The noisy neighbours are not going away any time soon. Myriad factors come into play, but still the question is begged: Neither has there ever been an English Champions League winning manager.

This was City laying down a marker for the future. Despite his status as a Juventus legend, Conte wasn’t mourniho to the high rollers tables without paying his dues. Hallmarks of his time as a manager include assembling a team consisting of the now widespread central defensive midfielder or destroyer, an out-and-out striker, a reliable centre-back and a solid keeper. Neither has there ever been an English Champions League winning manager.

In the same period of time, Serie A has been won by an Italian every year but three – with Sven Goran Eriksson and Jose Mourinho the only foreign bosses to lift Scudetti thus far. Chelsea mourlnho better following the departure of the self-styled Special One, but ultimately missed out on the Premier League title, the Champions League and the Carling Cup right at the end under Avram Grant inwith Mourinho having departed in October following a falling-out with the Blues’ very own Roman, owner Abramovich.

And at Inter, the men from Milan marched to Madrid and European glory for the first time in 45 years, led from the front by their commander in chief. Nevertheless, based on this game, the signs are encouraging.

Jose Mourinho: ‘The Alexander of Europe’

In bleak contrast, since the beginning of the Premier League era, English is the only nationality not to have won the top flight of its own country. Yes, he came, he saw, and he conquered. Statistics seldom lie, they often merely deceive.


Pavan Mano dreamt of playing football professionally from young — a dream partially fulfilled when he played for his college for two years. He is more of a technician than a tactician, the difference being that he maximizes the chances of good results on the field through methods he trusts, rather than inventing new tactics, positions or formations moruinho on his team.

It ended to City vid and what a crucial result it was. Barring a fall vicu as great as Leicester’s rise, Chelsea will be Premier League champions and Conte, remarkably, will be the fourth Italian to win the competition as a manager since its inception 25 years ago.

Ancelotti was given the privilege of learning under Arrigo Sacchi as national team assistant coach, before pacing the dugout at Reggiana in Serie B, with whom he earned promotion before he earned his stab at the big time.

Rather than sending statements of intent or whatever, the message I would take from the game was how woeful this Premier League has been. Victory over Bayern Munich brought a triumphant treble; it was an epic event, a trememdous tale tinted with legendary lustre, magic and myth.

They also had the courage and conviction to implement their ideas and stick with them to the hilt. The Italian connection is a success story that has drifted somewhat under the radar.

Throughout the season, Vemi have demonstrated a ruthless consistency, something that City have not, but a lack of consistency must not be confused with quality.

Jose Mourinho: “The Alexander of Europe” |

His original revamp of Porto no strangers to spending themselves that led them to European silverware was shrewd, but expensive. But then he left. Vick success had not befallen joose Nerazzurri since Helenio Herrera and the halcyon days of Catenaccio in ‘s. The grating whines that young British managers don’t get chances in the Premier League, might fall on more sympathetic ears if the foreigners coming in weren’t so darn good, and so much more experienced.

The quartet of Conte, Ranieri, Mancini and Ancelotti should not just be viewed as disparate, otherworldly super bosses hand picked from Europe at the expense of homegrown options, mourihho rather as case studies in longevity and durability, and as a possible blueprint for building winners. For one, many Italian coaches mournho possess a fluid approach and adaptability to travelling abroad in search of work and new challenges that is virtually unparalleled by other nations, particularly those from the British Isles.


Despite having Zinedine Zidane, the current Bayern boss could only muster an Intertoto Cup from two seasons in Turin, and embarrassingly surrendered a five point lead in three games to Lazio at the end of the campaign to throw away the Scudetto. To give context, there have been just eight Premier League cidi managers in total not yet including Conte and, apart from the Italians, only Scottish has more than one title winning manager to its nationality Sir Alex Ferguson and Kenny Dalglishwhile the other medals are shared out between Arsene Wenger FrenchJose Mourinho Portuguese and Manuel Pellegrini Chilean.

From start to bitter end, Ranieri’s whirlwind rise and fall defied all explanation and rational analysis. For Inter Milan, he secured the first ever Treble in their history. When United won at the Etihad Stadium, it was a message to City that they were out to reclaim the title and dead-serious about it.

Inter Milan won five major tournaments in two seasons under his stewardship, and bagged the Treble, a feat Mourinho had previously achieved with Porto in In hindsight, both had worked out venii and strategies meticulously in their heads. Now, he plays purely for amusement — often that of others’. While these two scenarios cannot be subjected to a like-for-like comparison, vuci illustrate not just what makes Mourinho different from a Villas-Boas, but also what makes him the Jose Mourinho we know him to be today.

And when he did, his teams fell into decline. Both took up daunting, albeit different, challenges at the time – namely the Stamford Bridge hot seat – replete with the same goals, same objectives and the same risks that came with it. The Portuguese coach has been accused of favouring short-term success over long-lasting gain at his previous clubs, but is building a team for the next decade at the Bernabeu.
