Bela Gutmann: The Original Jose Mourinho

Joe is away on holiday and Josh Schneider-Weiler from Tifo's This Football Life fills in and talks to David Bulchover about his book, The Greatest Comeback, which chronicles the career and life of legendary manager Béla Guttmann.

As a manager, Guttmann won titles in Hungary, Brazil, and Portugal. He is most famous for winning back-to-back European Cups with Benfica in 1961 & 1962. He was a coaching pioneer and was ahead of his time in many ways (fitness, psychology etc.). He shares many similarities with Jose Mourinho and other modern-day managers and his imprints are littered throughout the game.

Listen to Bolchover discuss Guttman's remarkable transition from surviving the Holocaust to lifting Europe's most prestigious trophy.
