明暗を分けたスペイン国王杯決勝~モウリーニョ監督の末路 ― スポニチ Sponichi Annex サッカー

自ら“スペシャル・ワン”と名乗るモウリーニョ監督は、レアルでの3年間で1年目にスペイン国王杯決勝で宿敵バルサを敗って18年ぶりに優勝を飾り、2年目でバルサの4季連続スペインリーグ優勝を阻んで4年ぶりにレアルに優勝をもたらしてファンを喜ばせた。CLでも過去6季連続でCL1/8決勝で敗退していたレアルを3季連続で準決勝進出に導いたものの、ファンが待ち望んでいた通算10回目のCL優勝、彼自身の目標でもあった前人未到の3つの違うクラブでCL優勝を果たすことができなった。 モウリーニョ監督は、過去のポルト、チェルシー、インテルで、彼のやり方でチームを作り、選手とファンの支持を得て成功してきたが、レアルでは事あるごとに選手やメディアと対立し、チームの和と周囲の落ち着きを作り出すことができず、選手にもファンにも最後まで信頼を得ることができなかったことがモウリーニョ監督の末路に結びついたようだ。
