José Mourinho on: What it takes to be a manager | Top Eleven


JOSÉ: It’s not easy. There are many – there are jobs much more difficult than being a football manager. Everybody knows that. But the social exposure is unique. I think it’s probably the only job in the world where people think they can do better than us. You get a doctor, you get an engineer, you get anyone in the top of any area, and we say “c’mon, he is the top, I cannot do that! I’m even scared to think about it.” And in football it’s probably one of the few jobs where the people think they can do better than us. And that’s a kind of social pressure that is really, really hard. You have to be strong to cope with all that pressure. And fundamentally you are more ready for it when you enjoy it.

  1. Dear Top Eleven devs,

    Please create a mechanic that permits managers to set formations/starting lineups for individual matches in the daily fixtures, in advance. Especially, if managers have multiple games on a certain day, but may not have a chance to edit their lineups between matches.

    Thank you,

    Your friendly neighborhood Blackman
