- You must never forget who your boss is
- You must kiss your boss' arse and make him like you
- You are not special, your boss is
- Your boss' opinion of you, whilst arbitrary, is much more important that what others think of you
- You can be replaced by someone else - talent can be bought.
I would like to say this to John Terry: John, you are a nobody. You're an employee just like Mourinho, if you wanna act like a "tai-kor" rebel, you will also be sacked by Abramovich. All employees are replaceable.
For non-football fans read this first
For the the benefit of you non-football fans, I will elaborate a little on José Mourinho.
Mourinho is a very successful football club manager because he won four consecutive league titles (two at Porto [a top Portuguese football club] and two at Chelsea) and also the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Cup with Porto. Mourinho is also currently the most successful manager in Chelsea's history having won a total of six trophies for Chelsea in three years.
Mourinho moved from Porto to Chelsea in June 2004 becoming one of the highest paid managers in football with a salary of £4.2 million a year, subsequently raised in 2005 to £5.2 million.
He is referred to by the media as the "special one" because of what he said at a press conference after joining Chelsea: "Please don't call me arrogant, but I'm European champion and I think I'm a special one".
Despite being disliked by managers, players and fans of other football clubs in England, Mourinho is somewhat a folk hero at Chelsea.
His boss was Chelsea's owner, Roman Abramovich, a Russian billionaire. According to Forbes magazine, Abramovich has a net worth of $18.7 billion and is the 16th riches man in the world. Abramovich is currently the riches man living in the UK. He bought Chelsea Football Club in 2003.
Abramovich and Mourinho started having some misunderstandings last year over the management of Chelsea. Despite José Mourinho achievements at Chelsea, Abramovich unexpectedly and without prior warning sacked Mourinho last week, 20 September 2007, giving some frivolous and lame excuse. Abramovich then replaced Mourinho with unknown manager Avram Grant. Note that Abramovich appointed Grant although Grant has no significant achievements in high level professional football competitions.
