Jose Mourinho is not the easiest manager to get along with as several Premiership managers will testify to. One person Mourinho respects and admires is current Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni.

Writing on the Inter Milan Website Jose said

"An embrace and sincere wishes to one of the greats of our sport, for his contribution in his role as a football coach, for the extraordinary victories in his career, particularly those on the Inter bench, but most of all for his ever-youthful desire to win and work on the pitch, which is our world, without confines, like Trap sees it."

Trap was born in Milan on March the 17th 1939. He won a league title in 1989 with Inter along with a an Italian Super Cup. He also brought a UEFA cup to Milan in 1991.
