Who is Jose Mourinho's Wife? Details of his Family & Kids!
Learn all the details you ought to know about the wife and married life of the Portuguese football manager Jose Mourinho.
Roles appear to be reversed between the two star players of Tottenham Hotspur, Son Heung-min, and Harry Kane. The Korean winger has smashed 8 goals so far this season in the English Premier League, the highest in the league as of this game week. On the other hand, the striker Kane's been the provider for most of the time, with eight assists so far this season. In their latest 0-1 victory over Burnley, Kane assisted Son for the only goal of the match, taking their link-up tally to 29 times, second only to record of Chelsea legends Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard (36).
Jose Mourinho seems to have the team more organized in comparison to the last season, but there's still much to see from them. Given his unsatisfactory time with Manchester United, he looks happier with the North Londoners and appears determined to give the Spurs their first major trophy, which the team has not won for several years now. But he has dismissed assurance of winning one, as he clarified in a recent interview saying, 'I will never consider ourselves title contenders.' Regardless, 'The Special One' seems to be enjoying his time in North London, and his family also seems to love it there. Deviating away from the current ruckus and unpredictability of the Premier League, we decided to take a peek at his personal life and learn about his family and married life.
Who is Jose Mourinho's Wife?
Jose Mourinho is married to Matilde Faria, who's been his wife for over 30 years now. The two are childhood sweethearts as they met for the first time when they were teenagers in Setubal, Portugal. The duo married in 1989 and celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary last year. Mourinho is equally dedicated to his family as he is to football as he has said that the 'most important thing [in my life] is my family and being a good father.'

Matilde Faria, who is nicknamed Tami, has been a huge influence in Jose Mourinho's professional career. According to The Sun, she even convinced him to reject the offer to manage the England National Team. 'Lampard, Terry, Joe Cole, everybody, was saying, ‘Come, come, come,' Mourinho told in 2014. 'My players said, 'The guys from Manchester United and Liverpool call us and say to us: Tell your boss to come.’ I had lots of positive things to push me.'
'My wife told me not to take it and she was right,' Mourinho added. 'It was the right decision. We are talking about seven years ago … and I cannot wait two years for a big competition. I cannot be spending two years playing against Kazakhstan and San Marino.' 'And she was right,' he said of the decision. 'It was not the job for me seven years ago, it’s not the job for me now and I don’t think it will be the job for me in seven years’ time. Maybe in 15 years from now but not seven.'
As one of the most decorated managers in professional football, Mourinho credits family happiness as a contributing factor to his incredible success over the years. 'The secret in everything is love. If you are successful in any job, I believe it is because you are in love with that job,' he says. 'And if you have a successful family it is because people are in love with each other. Love is the basic.'
