Fans Have Spotted Jose Mourinho Having Football Manager 20 On His Laptop

Less than a week after we saw rapper Soulja Boy streaming himself playing Football Manager, we've learnt that Jose Mourinho is an avid player.

The well-travelled Portuguese boss has been a highly successful manager in real-life for 20 years but Mourinho is also prone to a venture in the wonderful world of FM.

In an interview with Dagbladet, he said: "When I played for Man U I relaxed by playing Football Manager.

"It's a fantastic game, I have learned a lot about football. I have learned a lot about players, especially young talent.

"It resembles real life, when it comes to who will be good players. They have done incredible research. I remember thinking the same then, that I do as a manager, you want to give young guns the chance, see them develop.

"You could push a few buttons and get extra millions to buy a player. I never enjoyed that. I would rather win in spite of, than because of.
