José Mourinho on: Players sacrificing for the team | Top Eleven


JOSÉ ON: Players sacrificing for the team In one game with Inter in a Champions League Semi-Final we were playing against Barcelona with 10 players. And Samuel Eto’o, one of the best strikers of the last decade, he played right-back. And we qualified for the Final. 15 days later, we won the Final. 15 days later, we made history. So one of the best strikers in the world played right-back because the team needed him. And the strategy needed him to do that. And I think that this is only possible if the leadership was capable of making him think that he is not important. The team and the objectives are the most important things.
