“I remember it well: I aytor Karanko parked the car in front of my house, and then cried. It was very hard to accept, because in the 2011/12 season we were the best team in Europe”.
“We had a clear playing identity. We have always been very well organized in defence, and indeed all the players on the field know what they need to do. The game “real” it was a lot of discipline and organization. And we were able to make quick transitions, exploding and conducting a dramatic attack that was almost impossible to stop,” recalled Mourinho.
