Chelsea boss Mourinho: Clough was the Special One of his time

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he's is a big admirer of Brian Clough. Mourinho faces one of Clough's former clubs, Derby County, in the FA Cup today.

"I remember clearly Mr Clough as the manager in a generation when it was more difficult to be a special manager like he was," he said.

"That was an amazing part of the history. I watched the movie and read the book. I don't know if it is accurate or not. But you get an insight and an idea of the personality as a man and a manager.

"It was a fantastic part of football history."
