Mourinho Is Best Dressed Football Manager Ever

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been voted the best dressed football manager in a survey conducted by Tescos of all people.

According to today's Mirror, "His slick and sophisticated outfits left Premiership rivals Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson trailing in his wake. Dapper Arsenal manager Wenger came third after former Newcastle chief Sir Bobby Robson."

Of course, a 'best dressed football manager' competition is hardly a difficult prize to win, a fact made all the more obvious when you see who topped the 'worst dressed' list:

Brian Clough would have been sick as a parrot - he's just been voted football's worst-dressed manager ever, with Ron Atkinson not far behind.

The Nottingham Forest legend's pitch-side clobber of green jumper, trainers and track-suit bottoms won him the dubious award in a survey of soccer fans.

Former England boss Kevin Keegan came second and ex-Man United chief Big Ron scooped third place, thanks to his long sack-like coats.

In case you were wondering why anyone would bother asking 3,000 people these kinds of questions it's all to do with the release of Football Manager 2006 for the PS2.

Londonist sincerely hopes that the game has now reached such a heightened level of realism that you'll be able to choose your wardrobe down to the size of your ludicrously large tie knot. But we doubt it.
