As football is concerned, I’m not a certified expert or a coach but I love the game and always look for playing and studying it. So I’ve watched many matches of this manager named Jose Mourinho, who, in my opinion, is the best manager in the world after sir Alex Ferguson and Zinedine Zidane. This man Mourinho just have the tactics like a gamer of FIFA 17 like me. Here are some points that’ll help you understanding this manager tactical life from its Internazionale’s trio to its present reign in Manchester united.
Never have a back 3 – if you watch the lineup of the team under ‘ the special one’ you’ll come to know that the Portuguese never uses a formation which consists of three defenders instead of two centre backs and two full backs. Whether it’s Chelsea, real Madrid, Manchester united or even Inter Milan (where there’s a default tradition of having a back three), he always have a four man defense line. And keep my bet, he always get success (ex. A treble with inter). I think Mourinho really adapts the FIFA 17 video game in real life
Having some OTG musketeers – well to be honest I didn’t know what to headline this part so I gave it the title. Let me explain. Jose Mourinho always have some players in his mind who he always gets for the team wherever he goes. I mean when he was in Chelsea he had Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku. Then after few years of coaching when he got to Manchester united, he brought these two players just because he and them have an understanding which can only be possessed by a certain blend of manager and players, even if not the best in the world. This is a strategy I always used in career mode
Substitute after an hour – you can’t just force Jose Mourinho to have a substitution before 60+ mins if there’s no injury occured. Well, this is a strategy I’ve been using for long in FIFA 17 the video game. It has a very good use. After an hour, the opposition defenders and midfielders get tired and fatigued and bringing some Pacey (even with poor technique) forwards, wingers and midfielders is always a plus point if you want to snap some goals from the opposition. As it was showed in the 2017-18 premier league season’s match between Manchester united and Swansea city, he brought on three players (two midfielder and one forward) because he knew to make a scoreline from 1-0 to 4-0, you need to have some fresh and Pacey legs.
