Has only been in the PL 10 months, 2 clubs and I rate him highly, but relegation by 6 points at Hull showed that the magic wore off. And while he was able to build a team at Watford this summer and has had a great start, would inheriting a team in trouble again, be a great idea, given the Hull scenario? We don't know if Watford are going to maintain the start they've made.
He's called mini Mourinho because he did his football badges at the same place. Since Mourinho did his badges at Largs in Scotland, multiple aspiring Portuguese coaches have gone there and had impressive results when taking reigns in Portuguese football. For many in Portugal, these managers are seen as 'one of the bottle' to borrow a Mourinho phrase, but as if they have come off a production line. But it's also a bit of a back handed compliment, in that they've all tended to achieve more than those who have done badges in Portugal or elsewhere.
