Jose Mourinho Brilliantly Explains The Major Difference Between A Captain And A Leader

Jose Mourinho has insisted there is a "big, big difference" between a captain and leader and revealed how their influence greatly benefits a coach.

The 56-year-old Tottenham boss' illustrious managing career has seen him in the dugout at Manchester United, Inter Milan, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

"I've had captains that were not leaders," he said.

"Normally, the connection is the armband and this guy is the captain, this guy is the leader.

"No, many times the captain is not the leader.

"These two guys [Javier Zanetti and John Terry] were leaders and when you have these leaders you become more [of] a coach, you focus more on the coaching side of it.

The Portuguese manager admitted that he couldn't be happier at Spurs amid speculation linking him to Arsenal.

"You could put in front of me any club in the world and I would not move," he said.

"I'm so happy here that I could not even think about the possibility to go to another place.

"The facilities are the best I've ever seen and I've been in big clubs.
