This unique insider account of the private man and public manager begins at Old Trafford in 2004, when Mourinho's Porto put Manchester United out of the Champions League. Since then, author Robert Beasley has enjoyed unparalleled access and unrivaled experience with Mourinho both on a professional basis and on a personal level. Touring alongside Mourinho during his first tenure at Chelsea, Beasley forged a friendship with the manager that has lasted to this day. He reveals how close Mourinho came to becoming England's manager, and Tottenham's attempts to secure him. He discloses the truth about his dislike of Arsene Wenger, and what he shockingly said about him off record, and how his relationship with Abramovich really played out behind the scenes. Then there are all the intriguing stories behind the players he bought, and the ones he desperately wanted, but couldn't get. Written by the ultimate insider, this is the fascinating story of Mourinho and life at some of the biggest soccer clubs."
