Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho has been given an honorary doctorate by his old university. The Special One returned to Lisbon’s Technical University, where he graduated in physical education and sport more than 20 years ago, to collect the honour.
And the occasion brought a humility not often seen in the Special One (briefly at least). Dr Mourinho said: “I’m not sure I deserve this accolade. I’m surprised by it. I’m probably a source of pride for the faculty, but I’ve pursued my career without thinking about such things.”
Let’s see what the good doctor prescribes for a nasty bout of irritating Italian journalists!
