Interviewed by Nordeus , the developer of the Top Eleven video game for which he is one of the testimonials, José Mourinho – currently Tottenham's technician – spoke of the difference between leaders and captains, taking as an example Javier Zanetti, trained by him at Inter
GREAT DIFFERENCE – For José Mourinho it is not enough to wear a band on his arm to be able to say he is the leader of the team: « Being the captain and wearing the armband does not mean being a leader. I had a captain who could not be leaders. People associate bringing the armband with being the team leader. It is not so. Many times the captain is not the leader. Javier Zanetti and John Terry , yes they were. When you have this type of players in the locker room, then you can focus more on being just a coach as such ».
ANEDDOTO – Among the many captains that Mourinho had during his career, his thoughts go to one in particular at the time of the Port: « At the Port, for example, I had Jorge Costa . I remember once losing 2-0 at the end of the first half against Belenenses and was about to head furiously into the locker room. Before entering, he made me wait two minutes outside. When he finished talking and let me in, I just had to deal with tactical questions, because he had already taken care of the rest. He did everything I should have done. In the end we won that match 3-2 with two goals ».
ALL APPEARANCE – Words, those of Mourinho, that make it clear that in today's football there seem to be fewer and fewer players with these characteristics: « With this I mean that leaders cannot be bought and if you have this type of players, then you have a great locker room. Unfortunately now the world of football is pure image and people focus more on those who pretend to be the leader, rather than on who they really are ».
