A "Special" Record

Post by David Tails on Thu 17 Feb 2011, 11:16 am

This Saturday marks another special anniversary for Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho. It is nine years since one of the four teams he has managed since 2002 - Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real - lost a league match at home.

The last time the self-styled "Special One" experienced a league defeat with a side that he coached was on 23 February, 2002, when Porto were beaten 3-2 by Beira Mar.

Even then, Mourinho could claim extenuating circumstances given his Porto team were down to nine men by the end of the game and played for 65 minutes with less than 11 players.

Despite what you may feel about Mourinho, his tactics and antics, there is no doubting that is a "special" record. 9 years of remaining undefeated in the league at home is a massive achievement for anyone and has the makings of a record that will stand for a long, long time.
