Special sauce, special J cereal… and a watermelon
It’s not easy being special, just ask new Paddy Power Games ambassador, Jose Mourinho. pic.twitter.com/bvejewpHj2

We all know about the special nature. As for the melons, Mourinho once used the fruit as an analogy to describe Chelsea’s young players.
“Only when you open and taste the melon are you 100 per cent sure that the melon is good,” he said.
“Sometimes you have beautiful melons, but they don’t taste very good and some other melons are a bit ugly and when you open them, the taste is fantastic… One thing is youth football, one thing is professional football.
“The bridge is a difficult one to cross and they have to play with us and train with us for us to taste the melon.”
Zlatan bust, Russian dolls and oil painting of himself beating United at Old Trafford
Because he was Roman Abramovich’s Russian doll at Chelsea, duh.
Where’s your medal?
There’s an empty medal case from when Jose chucked it into the crowd after winning the Premier League in 2006.
The cherub is shushing – just like our new ambassador did to fans at Juventus and United.
There’s that famous laundry bin, which he used to smuggle himself into the dressing room in during a Champions League ban. And, hanging out of it, is a pair of trousers with mud on the knees from THAT Old Trafford celebration.
The doorbell is to the tune of the classical tune which people use to chant his name.
The dog bowl and the ‘I love JT’ fridge magnet
Didier Dogba, get it? Also, he really does Love JT – who doesn’t?
Jose has copies of Voyeur and Le Specialiste En Failure in his bookshelf. And the bookend is a bus, which he’s accused opponents of parking.
The Three Seasons
If you can accomplish everything you need to at a club in three seasons, why stay?
