Instead the award went to Spanish coach, Vincente Del Bosque. The Real Madrid coach is well known for not holding his tongue sometimes.
Many people believe that Mourinho aka “The Special One” deserved the award after he brought Real Madrid back from the shadow of Barcelona. Coincidentally, Del Bosque also coached Real Madrid one time.
Mourinho helped Real win the league for the first time emva kweminyaka emininzi last season. A season before that he won the Copa de Rey. At the awards show, The Special One received only 20% of the votes while Del Bosque received 35%.
Apparently he received calls from people telling him that they had voted for him prior to the awards being held. Miraculously those votes zaphela zisiya ku-Del Bosque. The Special One zange aye kwalapho kulofunction leyo.
Del Bosque has steered Spain into this all conquering side all of a sudden in the world. Spain was for most time underachievers in international football. They have won the World Cup only once.
The revolution of Spanish football iqalwe yi-Barcelona. The team has been dishing out magnificent football the past few years. Some have even called it the greatest soccer team of all times.

Del Bosque has rubbished the comments made by Jose as childish. Mourinho has not made a lot of fans with his unchecked outbursts sometimes. His mind games have led to many a coaches loosing focus going into a game against his side.
He has a chance to silence his critics by winning the champions league this season, let’s wait and see.
