Jose Mourinho has hit the headlines after being pictured leading a training session with Tottenham player Tanguy Ndombele at a north London park amid the coronavirus lockdown.
Mourinho has admitted he got it wrong after being pictured with Ndombele, Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon at Hadley Common.
The Portuguese manager has never been far from controversy – and even without any football he has found a way to cause a stir.
Life has never been boring during Mourinho’s career, which has seen him manage Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Inter Milan amongst others before taking the Tottenham job last year.
From his touchline antics to tapping up players and explosive post-match interviews, here’s a look at 10 of Jose Mourinho’s most controversial moments.

1) The touchline run
It was a sign of things to come – the moment Jose Mourinho arrived on the world stage.
Never one to hide his passion, he celebrated Porto’s equaliser in the Champions League quarter-finals against Manchester United by sprinting down the Old Trafford touchline.
His exuberant celebrations did not impress his future club but he certainly made his mark with his response to a famous victory en route to Champions League glory.

2) Tapping up Ashley Cole
Jose Mourinho got his man when he signed Arsenal left-back Ashley Cole in 2005.
But he was found guilty of “tapping up” the England star in a meeting in a hotel room.
Cole and Mourinho were both fined £75,000 for their part in the scandal, whilst Chelsea were hit with a £300,000 fine and suspended three-point deduction.
