Horses and Jockeys - brief update

While I was away on the North Coast, the Jorge Valdano fan club gained a new member. Les's take on the matter is even more bleak than Valdano's:

Jose Mourinho is the classic case of the coach who has never been a successful player. Such coaches, and many have been successful, understand football only through the prism of victories or defeats. They have a two dimensional, black and white view of what is their job, their task and what confronts them.

Strange that so many have accepted Valdano's strictures without question when, as I pointed out in the post linked above, there are plenty of counter-examples.
