The closest that Jose Bosingwa came to winning a major trophy with the Portugal national team was at the u-21 level rather than the senior level. Jose Bosingwa was a member of the Portugal u-21 squad that won bronze medal at the 2004 UEFA European u-21 Championship in Germany. The right-back was involved in 18 games for the Portugal u-21s between 2003 and 2004.

Jose Bosingwa was elevated to the senior team when he was given an invitation in May 2007 ahead of the Euro 2008 qualifier against the Red Devils of Belgium. He was in the Portugal squad that won 2-1 over Belgium on June 2, 2007. Bosingwa made his first appearance for the Portugal senior national team as a second half substitute for Miguel during the Belgium game.

A lot of attention is currently on José Mourinho since he was appointed as the new AS Roma manager some weeks ago. While many people have already started anticipating his sacking even though he is yet to oversee his first official match at the club, a lot of other people have already backed him up to enjoy success in Rome.

Mourinho was fired at Tottenham even before last season ended because of a poor run of form and his clashes with some of the players in the team. He was not allowed the chance to see his team play Manchester City in the Cup final even after guiding them to that stage.


Technology has been a blessing to football though VAR antagonists will say otherwise. Since the introduction of VAR at the start of the 2019/20 season, it has formed the subject of discussion as stakeholders wondered if it is good for football or not. A lot of football fans have argued against VAR especially when it comes to offside calls.

Speaking in favour of VAR, it has been a blessing in the aspect of violent conducts as footballers rarely get away with dangerous play since the technology was introduced at the start of last season. VAR is always ready to step in whenever the centre referee or his two assistants miss a dangerous play incident. The technology ensures that players are punished on incidents relating to both violent conduct and dangerous play.


In the wake of Tottenham Hotspur relieving José Mourinho of his managerial duties at the club, there have been several views and opinions about the incident. Tottenham owner Daniel Levy decided that enough was enough and eventually dished out the sack letter to the Portuguese manager on Monday afternoon after a run of poor results, with the most recent one a 2’2 draw with Everton.

Mourinho’s time at Spurs will be remembered for a lot of wrong reasons but the two major ones would be that firstly, Spurs would be the first club that Mourinho would coach and not guide to at least one trophy before leaving. Second, he already set an unwanted record at Spurs as they became the club where he has suffered the greatest number of losses in a single season.


Ex-Chelsea and FC Porto right-back Jose Bosingwais delighted that the footballing world has Jose Mourinho. Jose Bosingwaknows a lot about Jose Mourinho having played under him at FC Porto in the Portuguese top flight. Jose Bosingwa spoke about his former manager at FC Porto in a chat with Omnisport as he expressed his happiness that Portuguese tactician Mourinho is back doing what he loves and that’s managing a team from the dugout after he was written off at the end of his unsuccessful spell as the Manchester United boss. A lot of football stakeholders questioned Jose Mourinho and his ability to manage at the top level following his sack from the Red Devils managerial job.

Jose Mourinho lost his job as the Manchester United manager in December 2018 shortly after the disappointing 3-1 defeat at the hands of hosts and arch rivals Liverpool in the Premier League. That loss compounded a poor start to the 2018/19 season. He was replaced by former Red Devils striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaeron the interim before the Norwegian tactician was made the permanent manager as reward for his impressive record as the interim Manchester United manager. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still the Manchester United manager till date and he has elevated the Red Devils to be genuine title contenders this season.

The Chelsea team from 2012 champions league final

Chelsea was well beaten by Bayern Munich in the round of 16 UEFA champions league tie first league at Stamford Bridge. The blues did put in a strong performance in the first half to keep their illustrious German opponent at Bay, albeit the Bavarians were unlucky on some occasions. The second half was another story entirely, as Serge Gnabry produced another masterpiece performance in London. He had scored four goals against another London team, Tottenham in the group stage, in 7-2 mauling. He was instrumental again last night as he scored another 2, and the reliable Robert Lewandowski scored the third, adding gloss to an already impressive score line. Lewandowski’s goal was his 39th in 33 appearances this season.

The last time the two teams met, the German didn’t have it their way, as the Blues were crown champions of Europe. Despite being overwhelming underdogs, Chelsea somehow came out on top after winning the penalty shootout in 2012, so Bayern were out looking for revenge.

Manchester United have paid a record fee worth £50 million for Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.


The defender swapped London for Manchester in a move that has been brewing for the past few weeks. It is understood that the player is expected to take up the number 29 jersey.


Wan-Bissaka is regarded as one of the best young fullbacks in the game and his transfer completes a remarkable year for the defender. Converted from a winger to the defense at the start of last season the 21-year-old excelled for the Eagles.


He would be expected to replace outgoing captain Antonio Valencia and likely to be thrust straight into the first team. This transfer was hastened so that the player would be able to partake in pre-season.


His marauding runs from deep and defensive solidity made him one of the most sought after defender this summer. Wan-Bissaka is perhaps the most high profile rightback to make a move in England since the signing of Jose Bosingwa by Chelsea several years ago.


Bosingwa had just been named in the Euro 2008 team of the tournament and came with lots of expectations. However, he flattered to deceive at the club despite winning several trophies at the club.
