Inter Milan boss’s farewell embrace with hard-man defender

It looks like the ending to a dodgy rom-com, but it actually involves arguably the best football manager in the world and a supposedly tough veteran defender. Jose Mourinho is being driven out of Inter Milan’s Appiano Gentile training centre, with only those in denial not appreciating that this is probably for the final time.

His car heads towards the exit. But wait! The Special One has seen something we haven’t and orders his driver to stop. Mourinho makes his way towards a distressed Marco Materazzi and grabs him in a loving embrace.

Both men shed a few tears before Mourinho leaves for good.

    This clip was filmed outside the Bernebeu as Mourinho left, not the training ground. I know, I was there.

    This is beautiful, shows exactly what sort of a guy/manager Jose is, anyone who has ever worked for him loves him and will do anything for him, and this coming form a United fan.

    People who dislike Mourinho haven’t got a clue the guy is awesome.
