The most important question
Undoubtedly best moment of the Barroso lecture? One student who asked him whether Chelsea manager, José Mourinho, was a typical Portuguese. Barroso’s answer? Definitely not; most Portuguese are modest and after the season we’ve just seen, he’s anything but.
Personally, I really like the guy. But give me a few more years, once the novelty has worn off and I’ll probably feel as cold towards him as I do Alex Ferguson.
Although oddly I felt the same way about Wenger a few years ago as I do Mourinho – and I still feel quite warm towards the Frenchman.
