Legendary football manager Jose Mourinho starred in this cheeky ad from the betting firm Paddy Power.
The brand are known for their tongue in cheek commercials. Last year, they featured Ryan Giggs’ brother, Rhodri, in a promo that poked fun at the turbulent times between the two brothers. In the season just gone, Jose was kicked as boss of Manchester United, with some saying that he’s not quite the manager that he used to be. Brimming with confidence, Jose showed that he’s still as cocky as ever in this video.
He talks about his reputation as “the special one” and dials down claims of being too arrogant. This is all whilst walking alongside a host of his trophies. We also see him cutting a hedge that looks like 3 fingers, referencing his epic press conference rant where he bragged about winning the Premier League three times. The ad is packed full of other references too, like Jose’s pet dog “Didier”, his bust of Zlatan Ibrahimovic on his mantlepiece and a record called “the three seasons”. Only true footy fans will see and understand every reference. What was your favourite? Let us know in the comments below.
