The Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho has received a great degree in sport and quite rightly so, as the 54-year-old is simply one of the best managers in the world. He sure have his doubters, but the former Porto manager has time and again proved them wrong, which is why he is considered as best of the bests.
Managers, in particular, are not well-known outside football, but they sure have a huge exposure amongst some of the big brands of the world and Mourinho is no different. Known for his raving pre-match or post-match interviews, Mourinho is involved with some of the best names of the industry.
Rolling Stone: Rockstar of the year and more-
Back in December 2011, during his time with Real Madrid, the Portuguese manager was named as the ‘Rockstar of the year’ by Rolling Stone Magazine and to justify the title, the magazine cited his “controversial message,” “brazen intelligence” and “provocative attitude”.
Besides that, he was ranked no.9 on the list of “Most Influential Men” published by AskMen.com.
Brand Ambassador Hublot –
“First, I am a family man and then a football manager, but somewhere on the list of my many passions- I am a watch fanatic! I am honored to be part of a brand that upholds such similar values to me.”
Said Jose Mourinho when he signed for the company. While he was clear with his speech, Hublot, on their part, mentioned Mourinho as:
“Some might consider Football Manager, José Mourinho, Football royalty; a perfect fit for the aristocracy within which he resides, but the husband, father, brother, and friend will tell you he is simply ‘A Special One’.”
Mourinho has always been a fan of watches and his relationship with Hublot has been a long-term. He wears the same brand during the games and also during his ‘normal life’.
Ends Jaguar Deal –
Just last month, February 2017, Jose Mourinho ended his Jaguar deal after his contract with the leading brand came to an end. He appeared in a gracing photo shoot a week before his deal expired, and there has been no news of him renewing his contract.
After his last Jaguar ad, Mourinho said: ‘My teams have won many titles but I still want more.
‘I’ve worked with the biggest names in the world’s most famous cities ? but you achieve nothing if you stand still.
