Former Right-Hand Man Of Ex-Manchester United, Real Madrid, And Chelsea Boss Jose Mourinho Gets First Job In Management

Jose Mourinho and Rui Faria enjoyed a lucrative 17 years together

Exactly a month ago, Jose Mourinho somewhat acrimoniously departed from Manchester United after two-and-a-half years as manager of the Red Devils. A £24 million reported payoff wasn’t a bad little Christmas present for the Portuguese.

Seven months prior, his partner-in-crime, his Rodney to his devilish Del Boy, Rui Faria had already signed off from Old Trafford, bringing to an end a 17-year-partnership that procured a big haul than the Trotter Brothers could ever dream of.

Now Faria has stepped out on his own, as if Andrew Ridgeley had broken away from George Michael in the good old Wham! days, by taking his first steps into sole management. As reported by the BBC, Faria has become the head coach of incumbent Qatar Stars League champions Al Duhail (BBC).

The side are based in the capital of the Middle-Eastern state, Doha, and have won the championship six times, since their formation a decade ago in 2009.

With Mourinho, Faria won league title in four different countries - in Portugal, England, Italy, and Spain, with Porto, Chelsea, Internazionale, and Real Madrid, respectively, although the first in his native country was as a fitness coach.

His assisted trophy haul includes eight league titles, and two Champions Leagues (with Porto and Inter Milan),

In his previous job at Man Utd, Faria helped bring back the FA Cup, secure United with their first Europa League trophy, and the League Cup.

Chelsea’s Premier League title in 2014/15 remains the last time he helped win a championship.

At the time he broke up the dynamic duo Mourinho stated:, "17 years and the kid is now a man. The intelligent student is now a football expert, ready for a successful career as a manager."

"I will miss my friend and that is the hardest thing for me, but his happiness is more important and, of course, I respect his decision, especially because I know that we will always be together. Be happy, brother!"

Jose Mourinho is currently still without a job in management.
