Vieira: 'Mourinho my best Coach'

Patrick Vieira said he learned more from Jose Mourinho at Inter than his many years with Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

The current New York City FC manager spoke to The Times about his career and couldn’t help focus on the Treble-winning campaign in 2010.

Vieira was asked to choose who would be on the bench of his dream XI.

“Jose. He’s the manager who had more influence on me. Arsene is more concentrated on his own team — he gives freedom to players to express themselves. It’s a different style.

“Mourinho was the one who impressed me most on his work ethic. He knew everything about the opposition, the strength, weakness.

“His detail was unbelievable - everything was so clear about what he wanted from each player.

“I don’t know what happened at Chelsea but he always got the best out of his players.”
