Jose Mourinho to Roma: The Special One Drinking in Very Last Chance Saloon
The following excerpt is from the article on Breaking the Lines on May 12 https://breakingthelines.com/opinion/jose-mourinho-to-roma-the-special-one-drinking-in-very-last-chance-saloon/
9th March 2004 and 26th May 2004, two dates that live long in the memory, two dates that made someone in their professional field the hottest possible commodity, two dates that launched the career of one of 21st-century football’s most prominent figures.
The first of the two dates saw Costinha score a 90th-minute goal at Old Trafford in the 2nd leg of FC Porto’s 2003/04 UEFA Champions League Round of 16 match against Manchester United. The defensive midfielder’s goal made it 3-2 on aggregate to the Portuguese side, eliminating Sir Alex Ferguson’s troops in a shock result.
The second of those dates was in Gelsenkirchen at Veltins Arena where Porto, after eliminating Manchester United, Olympique Lyonnais and Deportivo de la Coruna en route, defeated Didier Deschamps’ AS Monaco side 3-0 in the UEFA Champions League final. Goals from Carlos Alberto, Deco and Dimitri Alenichev sealed a 2nd Champions League/European Cup triumph for Os Dragões. Still to this day, the Northern Portuguese outfit are the last team from a non-Big Five European league to win club football’s greatest prize.
