New Gretna signing Henry Makinwa has revealed how he once turned down Jose Mourinho when he was in charge of Uniao de Leiria.
"When he was going to Leiria and I was looking for a new club he said I should come with him.
"My contract was nearly finished and I knew I was moving on. Jose's father was technical director of Setubal and I talked to Jose on the phone. He asked me to give him time to sign me but it got to the stage where I couldn't wait any longer and had to join another club.
"However, after seeing what he has achieved it has always been good for my confidence to know he liked me as a player."
