His father played football professionally for Os Belenenses and Vitória de Setúbal, earning one cap for Portugal in the course of his career.

In 2004 Mourinho guided the team to the top of the league for a second time and won the highest honour in European club football, the UEFA Champions League. Due to these achievements he won the first ever FIFA Ballon d’Or Best Coach Award in 2010. His father played football professionally for Os Belenenses and Vitória de Setúbal, earning one cap for Portugal in the course of his career. Still, the young Mourinho managed to spend time with him and as a teenager he would travel by any means necessary to attend weekend matches. Graduating to the senior level, he played at Rio Ave (where his father was coach), Belenenses, and Sesimbra, but it became evident that he would not excel as a professional due to a lack of the requisite pace and power. Working his way up the ladder, he accepted the position of assistant manager at Estrela da Amadora, with the manager being Jesualdo Ferreira. Robson was sacked by Sporting in December 1993, but Portuguese rivals FC Porto appointed him as their head coach and Mourinho moved with him, continuing to coach and interpret for players at the new club.

After spells working as an assistant manager and a youth team coach in the early 1990s, he became an interpreter for Sir Bobby Robson. Within three months he had won his first Italian honour, the Supercoppa Italiana, and completed his first season in Italy by winning the Serie A league title. The fall of António de Oliveira Salazar’s Estado Novo regime in April 1974, however, led to the family losing all but a single property in nearby Palmela. Mourinho was a popular and competitive child and his mother encouraged him to be successful in his endeavors. His mother had different ideas altogether and enrolled him in a business school. Mourinho sought to redefine the role of coach in football by mixing coaching theory with motivational and psychological techniques. After leaving his job as a school coach, Mourinho looked for paths into professional management in his hometown and became youth team coach at Vitória de Setúbal in the early 1990s. Mourinho yearned for greater challenges and in 1992 an opportunity arose to work as a translator for a top foreign coach.
