Former Chelsea star Oscar has revealed the secret behind Mourinho's success as a manager. 

The Brazilian who was a key part of Mourinho's 2014/15 Premier League title-winning team said his former boss likes to work on his players' psychological side by being close to them.

“Mourinho likes to work on the athlete's psychological side,” Oscar told ESPN Brazil.

“He always wants the player to be happy to play. When you think you're not going to play, you play. When you think you're fine, he saves you from a game. He likes leaving a very focused player in the same game and wanting to show the best football. He has this way of doing it”

“Sometimes it seems to be difficult to work with him, but he does it because he demands the maximum. He takes you out of your comfort zone. He's really good.

“I had a lot of good times with him. He was a guy who helped me grow a lot in football. He trusted me and praised me a lot for the press. I really enjoyed working with him.

“Mourinho is much more of a figure than [Italian coach Antonio] Conte. He demands a lot, but he is very funny on a daily basis. When the team is winning he plays a lot with the players and asks if the family is doing well, makes some jokes"

Mourinho has won three Premier League titles, collected in two spells with Chelsea, in 2004/05, 2005/06 and 2014/15. He sits joint second on the all-time list, together with Arsene Wenger.
