Real Madrid’s manager wants to kick his self-annointed ‘Special One’ title to the kerb, y’all.
Can you believe it?
“Like me or not, I am the only one who won the world’s three most important leagues. So, maybe instead of the ‘Special One’, people should start calling me the ‘Only One’,” Mourinho said in an interview with Portuguese television channel SIC.
A big part of us supports the salt and pepper shaker’s need to constantly reinvent himself. It’s an admirable trait of successful folk just like him. A smaller part of us empathises with our proofreading team since his declaration marks the start of a sad, dark, and darkly sad chapter in their lives. Obviously all copy writers on staff will be mucking this nickname switheroo up 100% of the time for the next three months. At minimum.
Are there any other readers out there feeling the pain of this announcement? We know there are many undercover Mourinho lusters who will not take the news lightly.
