3 coaches in the world that asked for a player's jersey on the pitch

Published 8 days ago - 6938 views

Jose Mourinho , a coach known for his eccentric comments and actions. The Tottenham Hotspur boss has always been a journalist's favorite because of his demeanor.

However, there are also people who consider Jose Mourinho as an unethical figure when on the field. One moment that is always in the minds of football lovers is when The Special One asked for the jersey of the opposing team.

In general, it is not unusual for a coach or a player to swap shirts. Unfortunately, there are some team architects who ask for the opponent's costumes instead of exchanging uniforms.

As is known, the purpose of exchanging costumes bearing the names of players usually occurs because friends outside the field, compatriots, or most commonly admire the figure of the idol. Not infrequently footballers make special cabinets to put the entire collection of jersey results from the exchange.

However, this tradition is not only done by footballers. On several occasions, there were moments when the coach asked for an opposing player's jersey. Here are three names, including Jose Mourinho, who have done that:

Jose Mourinho (Arsenal vs Chelsea, 2013)

This rare moment occurred when Jose Mourinho was still coaching Chelsea. In the London Derby that brought Arsenal against Chelsea in the 2013 Capital One Cup, the match ended in victory for the Blues at the Emirates Stadium.

After the match, The Special One was seen asking Arsenal's player, Mesut Ozil for a jersey. The two of them had indeed worked together at Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho became coach of El Real in the 2010-2013 period. At that time, Ozil became a mainstay of Los Blancos players.

One thing that is interesting, actually Ozil and Jose Mourinho had an argument in the Real Madrid dressing room. Before the two of them decided to move to the Premier League in 2013.

Carlo Ancelotti (Napoli vs Liverpool, 2018)

Carlo Ancelotti was caught asking for the new Liverpool player Mohamed Salah when he was still training Napoli in the 2018/2019 Champions League. In that match, Napoli won 1-0.

Even though the Reds suffered a defeat, Salah still gave Ancelotti his jersey. The former AC Milan coach is known to be very impressed with Salah's game when he was in the Reds' uniform.

In 2018/2019, the Egyptian forward was able to score 27 goals and 12 assists from 52 appearances in all competitions.

Mircea Lucescu (FC Barcelona vs Dynamo Kiev, 2020)

Mircea Lucescu leads Dynamo Kiev when they face Barcelona in the 2020/2021 Champions League stage. The match ended in defeat for Kiev.

However, unlike the players, the coach came home happy after receiving a special gift from one of the best players in the world.

Yup, after the referee's long whistle sounded, Lucescu was caught on camera approaching Lionel Messi and asking for the megastar's jersey. With a friendly gesture, Messi gave a jersey in the hallway.

Due to health protocol reasons that had advised players not to give a jersey after the match. Even so, La Pulga still granted Lucescu's request and presented the jersey in the stadium hallway.
