Comedian Matze Knop managed to get a Mourinho interview, while assuming the character of German football legend Franz Beckenbauer or Kultkaiser.
The interview takes place in the tunnel after Michael Ballack’s testimonial match earlier this month which pitted the imperious Friends of Ballack (or Ballack & Friends according to some reports) against a World Selection, managed by José Mourinho himself.
The Special One responds to the questions with an endearing openness and talks about the possibility of coming to Germany (no), why he prefers the weather in England rather than Spain, the secret of his success and much more.
Watch the full Matze Knop José Mourinho interview below:
The testimonial game ended 4-3 to the “world selection”, but it’s hard to tell if Ballack was on the winning team as he scored twice for Friends of Ballack and then switched sides before scoring another.
