Jose Mourinho wishes unbeaten log leaders Bosso a successful season
The Zimbabwean football community at large, particularly Highlanders FC supporters, have ‘taken their hats off’ to salute AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho following his message to the Bulawayo giants wishing the club a successful season.
A 58 seconds video of The Special One, as Mourinho is nicknamed, conveying his message to Bosso, hoping they end the season on a high note, is making rounds on social media platforms.
Mourinho’s sentiments comes after he worked with the Bosso coach Baltemar Brito who was his assistant at FC Porto and Chelsea.
The outspoken gaffer, formerly with Inter Milan, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs, referred to the 72-year-old Brito as “his brother”.
He said: “Hello everyone at Highlanders. I’m sending you a message because Mr (Baltemar) Brito is my brother. We fought together for many years.
“We won many trophies together. He will always be my brother and I’m so happy that he is doing a great job with you guys at Highlanders.”
Added Mourinho: “You (Highlanders) are on top of the league. Hopefully you can have an impact and help the future of the Zimbabwe national team. So, all the best for you guys.”
