As cobbled together by Spanish TV show Fiebre Maldini earlier in the week, here’s a few classic swatches of footage showing Jose Mourinho during his Barcelona days, doing his level best to translate for then-manager Sir Bobby Robson.
The pair manfully bat away questions at a succession of press conferences, with Sir Bobby mulching his way through two or three different languages – four if you count unintelligible gibberish – in his own inimitable style…
There isn’t a day goes by that we don’t miss having Bobby in and around the game. Everything else just seems so stale in comparison.
