Watt now plays for non-league Maidstone United.
He told The Sun: â€œI have never met anyone like Jose in football and donâ€™t think I ever will.
â€œHis man-management was on a different level. Players would go out on that pitch willing to die for him.
â€œOn that first day we were called into Stamford Bridge for a meeting, which was strange in itself as these things would usually be held at the training ground.
â€œHe had us in a room overlooking the pitch and it was deliberate because one of the first things he said was we would never lose at home â€” whether it was in the league, the cups or Europe.
â€œJose had an aura about him, and if there were any of the boys who had doubts about him they were won over straight away.
â€œIâ€™ve never met a manager who was more thorough. The preparation was the same, whether we were playing Barcelona or Scunthorpe.
â€œYou would go in every day excited about what the day had in store and that was as much down to Jose as a person as anything else."
