Benni McCarthy: Mourinho & Me

Hola Big Interview listeners!

When we asked what your favourite Big Interviews were from past seasons of this podcast we had a lot of great, interesting responses. And one of those which grabbed our attention was about my chat with the great Benni McCarthy.

This is part one: the story of when Benni first met a mysterious young coach by the name of Jose Mourinho and how they came to work together at Porto.

What happened after that was historic, with Benni going on to lift the Champions League with his new side. Among his team-mates back then were the likes of Deco, Ricardo Carvalho and Jorge Costa, and Benni describes brilliantly that diverse group of characters who would conquer Europe under the guidance of Mourinho.
