Jose Mourinho Unveils A New Nickname For Himself; Says He Is No More The “Special One”

Published

on

Jose Mourinho has given himself a new nickname stating that he no longer wants to be called the ‘Special One’.

Jose Mourinho has been managing in the Premier League since 2004, and he admits that his nickname of the ‘Special One’ is now outdated.

The legendary Portuguese tactician has led Tottenham to second in the Premier League this season, and his team is considered as title contenders.

Mourinho became known as the ‘Special One’ after he gave himself the label when he arrived to much hype and fanfare at Chelsea in 2004.

The ‘special one’ tag has stuck with him ever since.

But on Thursday, November 19, he revealed he should be called a new name.

“The ‘Experienced One.’ I am very experienced,” Mourinho replied when asked by journalists what he would call himself now.

“Basically everything that happens to me in football now is deja vu, is something that has happened to me before.

“There are jobs that you need a special fitness condition like a football player. A 40-year-old does not have the same potential as a 20-or 30-year old unless you’re Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“Coaching you just need your brain, an accumulation of experiences and knowledge can only make you better.”

A brilliant partnership between Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min has been crucial to Spurs’ recent good form in the league but Mourinho insists their excellent friendship is the key to their on-pitch success.

Jose Mourinho has unveiled a new nickname saying he is no longer the

“I think it started with the relationship that they have,” Mourinho added.

“They are good friends, they like to play on each other. They just want to win and to perform, there is no space for jealousy.

“Sonny is a very fast player, likes to attack spaces, and Harry is amazing with the ball and when he drops back, he is a player with high quality.”

UK Scientist Invents Face Mask That ‘Kills COVID-19 And Other Viruses’

Published

on

A Nottingham Trent University scientist, Garreth Cave has invented a face mask that can ”kill viruses including COVID-19 and influenza upon contact.”

Mirror reported that while most face masks feature a three-layer design, this mask features five layers, including an antiviral layer made of nano-copper. It also has ions that are emitted once in contact with a virus, causing the virus to die and stop reproducing.

Dr Gareth Cave, who designed the mask said;

“The mask we’ve developed has been proven to inactivate viruses upon contact; the antiviral layer kills virus which has been blocked by the filter layers.

“The challenge with conventional surgical-type masks is that they only block virus from entering or exiting the mask. They don’t have an active mechanism for killing it once it’s trapped in the mask.

“Our new antiviral mask has been designed to utilise the existing barrier technology and combine it with our nanotechnology to kill the virus once it is trapped there.

“We’ve added the barrier layer to both sides of the mask so not only does it protect the wearer but also those around. By killing the virus on contact, it also means that the used face mask can be safely disposed of and not be a potential source of passive transfer.”

UK scientist invents face mask that

During tests, the face mask was shown to be able to kill more than 90% of Coronavirus and influenza viruses over seven hours, and had a filtration efficiency of 99.98%.

The masks are expected to go into production this month, and will be commercially available from December for healthcare, transport and food service settings.

Cave added; “It’s exciting to see our technology move forward and make a real impact towards the fight against the spread of COVID-19.”

Published

on

Pep Guardiola has agreed to a new contract with Manchester City.

The Spanish manager, 49, whose existing deal was due to expire at the end of this season, has signed a two-year extension at the Etihad, to keep him at the club until 2023.

His extension will see him overtake Joe Mercer and put him second on the Club’s list of longest-serving post-war managers.

Confirming the news, Chairman Khaldoon Mubarak said: “It is testament to the qualities of the man that Pep Guardiola’s passion and intelligent approach are now woven into the very fabric of the football we play and our culture as Club.

“That impact has been central to our success during his tenure and it is why I am delighted that he shares our view that there is so much more to be achieved both on and off the field.

“Pep’s contract extension is the natural next step in a journey which has evolved over many years.

“It is a product of the mutual trust and respect that exists between him and the entire Club. It also goes to the stability and creativity at the heart of our football operations.

“Importantly it is a validation of the football structure and philosophy that has been built over more than a decade and to which he has contributed so much.

“I’m sure all City fans share my delight in this new agreement and in anticipating the exciting opportunities that, with continued hard work, are there to be taken.”

Guardiola said: “Ever since I arrived at Manchester City I have been made to feel so welcome in the club and in the city itself – from the players, the staff, the supporters, the people of Manchester and the Chairman and Owner.

“Since then we have achieved a great deal together, scored goals, won games and trophies, and we are all very proud of that success.

“Having that kind of support is the best thing any manager can have. I have everything I could possibly want to do my job well and I am humbled by the confidence the Owner, Chairman, Ferran, and Txiki have shown in me to continue for two more years after this season.

“The challenge for us is to continue improving and evolving, and I am very excited and about helping Manchester City do that.”

Guardiola, who is now in his fifth year at Manchester City, has won two Premier League titles, three League Cups and the FA Cup with the Blues, but wants to desperately add the Champions League to that list.
