José Mourinho gave an interview to Gameplan-a.com in which he touched on several subjects. One of them is the important condition to be a great coach. For the Portuguese, it’s the ability to speak several languages.
“You can’t be a top-level soccer coach without speaking several languages. Soccer has become universal. In the dressing room, you have guys of many different nationalities, and obviously you have to learn the mother tongue of the country you’re in. At the end of the day, to have more empathy and communicate better with the people you work with, you have to be very good in several languages,” said the Special One.
