Real Madrid Coach Jose Mourinho to Star in Cartoon Called ‘Mourinho and the Special Ones’

A Portuguese company, Sports Stars Media, wants to use Jose Mourninho‘s likeness in a new cartoon series. The BBC reports “Mourinho and the Special Ones” will help kids develop as soccer players and positive human beings.

“Sports Stars Media has the rights to use Mourinho’s image for the purposes of developing and marketing the CGI animation,” the report reads.

The proposed series will be set at a fictional soccer school, where the Real Madrid manager will coach young players in the sport and in life. 

The series gets its name from the nickname the Portuguese tactician gave himself when he was introduced as Chelsea manager in 2004. 

Mourinho is one of the top managers in world soccer. He won league championships with FC Porto in Portugal, Chelsea in England and Inter Milan in Italy. He is a two-time UEFA Champions League winner with Porto and Inter. 

He helped take legendary Spanish club Real Madrid to a new level. It had a club-record 15-game winning streak snapped in Saturday’s loss to Barcelona, but still is tied for first in La Liga with a game in hand.
