Former A.S Roma and Chelsea manager, José Mourinho, has backed the Nigerian Super Eagles coach and his compatriot, Jose Peseiro, ahead of the African Cup of Nations final match, stating that “never has a Portuguese coach won the African Cup.”
Mourinho made this known during an interview with FIVEUK which was shared on the medium’s X handle on Sunday.
Mourinho said, “My best friend in football is in the final. The Nigerian coach is my best friend. He grew up with me. We studied together. We went to university on the same day. We spent five years together every day. We left at the same time. He is probably my biggest friend in football.
“Jose (Peseiro), my big friend, and for him a huge opportunity to make history because never has a Portuguese coach won the African Cup.”
