Jose Mourinho: Cropped Top

Forgive us for not commenting on The Special One’s hair situ until now. We were doing other important things like rearranging the furniture at HQ and discussing our favorite new pedicure shades for summer (OPI’s Big Hair…Big Nails, btw).

Jose had been rocking the slightly manic looking tousled salt-n-pepper do for most of his tenure at the Bernabeu.  (Image via Julian Finney/Getty Images Europe)

We think Jose’s hair is directly proportional to the inner workings of his mad scientist-like mind. The more unkempt the hair is, the more unkempt the Jose is.

Can we assume that his new close-cropped Clooneyesque do is a sign that TSO has mellowed with the end of the season looming? Is he preparing for his summer holidays by removing some bulk from his dome? It’s too tough to call. One thing we’re sure of, though, is that it’s never a bad thing to look like less of a crazy person.

Any additional theories on Jose’s barnet we failed to consider?

    i just felt the need to comment because of the nailpolish mention
    O.P.I. Big Hair…Big Nails looks similar to China Glaze's Orange knockout
    or is it Japanese Koy? sigh, love springy shades of Nail Polish

  3. gin_in_teacups says:

    Still sexy.

  4. Lotte says:

    Yes, there is no in between when it comes to him.

  5. Zahara says:

    he looks good in this one too, but i liked the messy hair a liiitle bit better.

  6. footballandme says:

    Who said that I didnt like bald men? I said in response to the main question of "He's trying to look more like Pep" and I said well thats hard because Pep is bald.

    What was wrong with that?

  7. Gladys says:

    I like his outfit! (Even Mou knows that jeggings are out, wide leg trousers are in.) ;)

    • Slave4Mou says:

      He should tell Pep. Too bad he's not talking. Maybe at the first press conference after UEFA explains the ban.

  8. Clare says:

    Less of a crazy person? I disagree – the old hair made him look quite suave, now he just looks like a psychopath!!

  9. mamaly says:

    Long hair, short hair, unshaven, just drop dead gorgeous.…

  10. AllTheWay..Me says:

    Omg what has he done to his wonderful hairs?!
    His new haircut is awful.. I loved his last one :D

  11. Marika says:

    I find him very attractive!

  12. AC_USA says:

    I am really sorry this has nothing to do wit Murinho, but these two man just make me warm inside! Their bromance is amazing and I love them both! Love Joe and Dzeko :)………


  13. Slave4Mou says:

    Too right ladies. Libby's joking non? Notice how no one ever comments on PEP's hair cuts? I wonder why? Sorry, that sounded a bit b*tchy.

  14. Slave4Mou says:

    There's nothing like a nice shot of Mourinho on Monday….I have already gone on record in favour of JM's longer locks. I think it may be a form of protest on Mou's part – austere hair, stoney silence (so frustrating) . If it is an attempt to get my attention, Jose honey, it's working. It is going to be a long hot summer and Mou needs to stay cool. (p.s. Valdano MUST go!)

  15. chay says:

    Jo Mou is stylish and handsome with short or long-ish hair. I can't resist him! The long hair, i would just run my fingers through it. The short hair, i could just grab it at the top and pull … hard :-P

  16. ciotog says:

    Well that's better, he was starting to look one press conference away from a tinfoil helmet. Looking every bit the silver fox now they're off his plate

  17. Madrista says:

    I'd do him, the hot silver fox that he is. Hair short, hair long, whatever, I'll still jump him in a heartbeat!

  18. Libby says:

    we're calling this hot now?!? oh dear.

  19. Thea says:

    he is trying to look more like Pep………………he can't beat him. so hey try and join them!

    • Sarah, Madrid says:

      lol, you know he did beat him yeah? ;) ( with all due respect to Pep)

      • footballandme says:

        Pep's bald so Jose is already 1-0 to the good in the hair stakes!

        • Lotte says:

          Personally I see nothing wrong with bald men. Some of the sexiest men out there are bald.

          • Thea says:

            Thankyou Lotte…….Pep doesn't need to shout comspiracy either when things don't go his way!

          • Sarah, Madrid says:

            I personally love Pep look, I call him my forbidden love in Barc and respect him loads, since his days of playing with SNT, but again you dont have to put-down Mourinho to make Pep look better and vice versa.

            • Lotte says:

              I happen to be married to a guy that is, well not bald but shaves his head. And me like! Pep is extremely hot, and Jose is handsome.

              So you see, I'm not putting Mou down to make Pep look better. I happen to have an interrest in bald men :) . But I don't mind putting Jose down because of his behaviour. I think many of you know that by now.

              • Thea says:

                Here, Here! He hasn't shown himself to be a man of class in recent weeks!

                • Lotte says:

                  If you read the article that Kickette linked to in this post it seems that he never has been. Jeez, the things that guy has done! I didn't know of half of it. But, whatever floats your boat, etc.

            • Slave4Mou says:

              You too good for me Sarah, Madrid. I always resort to the cheap ad hominem attacks.
              Pep was hotter with hair ( I can admit that and I can also admit I really like his purple sweater) but for me, he is not passionate like Jose. Hair or no, I want passion.

              • Kristina says:

                I don't like his kind of passion. It's a passion that consists in blaming others for your own mess, being rude and childish. I know that many like his antics. I doesn't do anything for me.

              • Sarah, Madrid says:

                haha! no, you don't, you are just passoinate about Mou, btw Pep is passionate too, both of them show it in different way, see if everyone was the same, life would be boring, just like now when Mou is not talking, I kind miss him and even his bench actions, although right now Karanka is being a good student of Jose.

                • Slave4Mou says:

                  Karanka is doing a good job. I'd love to hear your thoughts on Villas-Boas – he sure is The Modest One… You are also totally right about needing variety in men, even hot managers.

                  • Sarah, Madrid says:

                    Villas-bonas is the highlight of this season for me and he is handsome, a totally different look lol! He remind me of early Jose, of his movement I mean, he must be the pride of his teacher Jose, I can picture him in RM after 6-7 years when he become a serious household name in coaching!

                    Villas just make me admire Jose more and more as coach! His assistant winning 4 titles I think?! in one season respect to Jose.

                    • Slave4Mou says:

                      you are right. I will have to focus some of my attention west to Portugal and AVB esp. if Jose keeps up this increasingly tiresome silent treatment. I found AVB's recent comment about not wanting to coach for more than 10 years interesting… maybe he doesn't enjoy all of the attention (unlike somebody else we know and love…) I wonder about the Chelsea rumours….I hope he stays in Portugal another year.

                    • Sarah, Madrid says:

                      I hope too and I am not fan of the idea of him doing exactly what Mou did! Anyway I wish him luck from all my heart and he will be in UCL next year anyway, interesting to watch :)

                    • Slave4Mou says:

                      No one can do what Mou does. Sigh….

    • Cora says:


      Yeah Thea, Mou cut his hair to shame Pep for his bald-headedness.
      Same like CRon tans to shame Messi/Iniesta for their paleness.

      Point is, everything that Real Madrid does is to try and be like Barca. Because they invented football. OK.
