Mourinho's persona on camera differs from the man who goes and watches his 12-year-old son play football. The Real boss said: "Before the match, press conference is pre-match and after the match, press conference is post-match, but it's a match." CNN
Mourinho hopes to continue working in football until he is 70 or 75 and says he feels right at home in his office.
