As one of the most charismatic figures in the game, his reappearance could surely only be a good thing.But is there a darker side to the Mourinho? A mischievous, scheming, even tyrannical quality to the man beneath the veneer of charm?As part of El Pais, Diego Torres is one of the premier investigative journalists in Spanish football, and in this explosive biography of 'the special one' he uncovers secrets and lies that will change the way we see Mourinho.From dodgy dealings to assassinations of players both outside and within his own team, and other shocking revelations, Prepare To Lose reveals Mourinho as a man far removed from the hero so many people consider him to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very insightful, but take with a grain of salt This book really tries to build the portrait of the ever flawed Mourinho in a really intimate way. Which in itself is really interesting, but it is almost so intimate (fly on the wall intimate) it makes you wonder how much of it was embellished. Torres has come under criticism before for some of his work , so beware of that as a reader. However even if some of the things that happen (for example Mourinho balling over the fact that he didnt get the Manchester United job) it does shed some like on his character, which most of us see on the pitch anyhow. Worth a read and its a fun way to look at Mourinho.
