Mourinho’s Seven Point Plan for Winning Big Games

From this excellent article by the Guardian’s Jonathan Wilson. It should be noted that this should be taken with a pinch of salt because Diego Torres is a renowned Mourinho hater and has no direct access to Mourinho only Madrid players. According to Torres, Mourinho laid out a simple seven-point plan for winning big games:

  1. The game is won by the team who commits fewer errors.
  2. Football favours whoever provokes more errors in the opposition.
  3. Away from home, instead of trying to be superior to the opposition, it’s better to encourage their mistakes.
  4. Whoever has the ball is more likely to make a mistake.
  5. Whoever renounces possession reduces the possibility of making a mistake.
  6. Whoever has the ball has fear.
  7. Whoever does not have it is thereby stronger.
