Jose Mourinho is arguably one of the greatest football managers the world has ever seen. The Portuguese international has managed some of the best clubs in Europe including FC Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspurs and currently AS Roma. The Special One has won so many trophies with the different clubs he has managed. He has also managed some of the best players in the world including Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Frank Lampard, Harry Kane, Paul Pogba and Wayne Rooney.
During an interview with SPORTbible, Jose Mourinho was asked to name the greatest footballers of all time. Well, it was surprising that the Portuguese international did not mention the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and Harry Kane. Jose Mourinho mentioned just three players as the greatest footballers of all time. Jose Mourinho mentioned Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona and the Brazilian Pele as the greatest footballers of all time.
Jose Mourinho praised Cristiano Ronaldo and Ronaldo Nazario but insisted that the best players in history are Lionel Messi, Maradona and Pele.
"For me, the best players in history are Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona and Pele. Cristiano Ronaldo is on a level where he is does not need these questions and answers. He is one of the best of all time, it is as simple as that. Ronaldo Nazario is one of the best players I ever managed. But the best players of all time are Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona and Pele."
