Mourinho reveals the best XI he has coached

José Mourinho has created a Dream Team. The Spurs coach has put together quite the list of players with the majority of them coming from Chelsea. A couple of Real Madrid players make the XI but nobody from Manchester United is on the list. The Portuguese has managed Porto, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United and now Tottenham during his career. 

From Real Madrid, he picked two: Mesut Özil and Cristiano Ronaldo, leaving off names like Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Xabi Alonso and Iker Casillas. From his successful spell at Inter, he picked one player: Javier Zanetti. There is nobody from Spurs on the team either, and not a single player from Porto with whom he won the Champions League in 2004.

Players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wesley Sneijder, Paul Pogba, Samuel Eto'o and Harry Kane didn't make the cut. "During my career, he is the best manager I've had," said John Terry before about the manager. "If he said we can go to the moon, I would have gone or at least tried."

Mourinho's ideal XI:

Petr Cech;Javier Zanetti, John Terry, Ricardo Carvalho, William Gallas; Claude Makelele, Frank Lampard, Mesut Ozil, Eden Hazard; Didier Drogba, Cristiano Ronaldo.
