Jose Mourinho denies reports of naming Best XI from his career

Jose Mourinho has categorically denied a recent report suggesting that he named his all-time best XI players in the latest episode of the Obi One Podcast.

The rumored lineup, set up in a 4-3-3 formation, included former Chelsea captain John Terry, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Eden Hazard, with no representation from his stints at Manchester United and Tottenham.

Taking to his Instagram account, Mourinho posted a passionate response to the circulating rumors. He emphasized that he has managed numerous exceptional players throughout his career and would never compile a definitive list of eleven individuals.

Mourinho expressed his respect for all the players he has worked with and reiterated his commitment to recognizing the greatness of many talented individuals.

The AS Roma manager’s statement on social media serves to dispel the purported lineup and reinforces Mourinho’s appreciation for the diverse array of players he has coached over the years.

As the decorated manager continues his career with AS Roma, fans and football enthusiasts await further developments on the field and Mourinho’s coaching journey.

“Fake news: JM’s best eleven, JM picks his best eleven… Fake news,” Mourinho posted on his Instagram page with his picture.

“I never did, and I will never do [choose a best eleven]. I’ve had so many top players, but the most important thing is what those players gave to me.”

”Players who gave me everything: quality, effort, blood, and soul, they are all in my best eleven. All of them. That’s why I always refused to choose my best eleven. I love my players, I respect my players.” Jose Mourinho wrote to deny the existence of any best XI.
