Jose Mourinho is one of the greatest managers of all time. The Portuguese coach has won two UEFA Champions Leagues and has won trophies in whichever league he has gone. However, his legendary status is incomplete if people don’t mention his elite sense of humor and press-conference antics.

Mourinho has had several infamous clashes with the press, like the “Three” rant where he demanded more respect from the media. However, not all of his antics are controversial, and most of them are incredibly funny.

Jose Mourinho answers a bizarre question wittily

This time around, it wasn’t Mourinho’s fault that the situation was so weird. The question asked by a reporter on the stage during FIFA’s The Best Awards, two years ago, was very unusual, to say the least. The reporter talked about a situation where Alien Life is discovered on Earth and a football match is organized between Earth’s team and the Aliens.

She talked about the players available to the Earth’s team and asked Mourinho who should coach this special team.

I think FIFA doesn’t allow a coach to coach two teams at a time. So it has to be a coach without a job,” Mourinho responded.

In 2018, Mourinho left Premier League club Manchester United and was unemployed at the time. However, that didn’t last very long and the Portuguese manager found himself at the helm of Tottenham Hotspur. He spent two years at the North London club before being sacked in 2021.

Currently, Roma is sitting in 6th place, two points behind 5th place Fiorentina. The club has made the signings of Englishmen Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham. Moreover, former Real Madrid star Brahim Diaz is also starting to find his feet under Mourinho. It’ll be interesting to see where he can take this team this season.
