Chelsea FC manager Jose Mourinho has raised a few eyebrows with his comments in a recent interview, where he has praised his current number two Rui Faria to be the most accomplished of all his disciples.


The Special One has mentored a host of big names including Liverpool FC manager Brendan Rodgers, Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka, Reading manager Steve Clark and former Chelsea FC manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Jose Mourinho shared a healthy relationship with Rodgers and Villas-Boas during their time together. However, when asked about what he sees in his disciples the Portuguese was quick to praise Rui Faria without even mentioning the others.

Mourinho insisted that Faria is ready to become a manager as soon as tomorrow.
