A José Mourinho documentary to premiere on Netflix in 2025

Netflix has officially announced that it will premiere a documentary series about football legend José Mourinho in 2025.

The show will look at the 61-year-old’s football career twenty years after he led Porto to winning the Champions League. The series will feature interviews from Mourinho and the players that trained under him.

While still in charge of Roma at the beginning of January this year, Mourinho happened to have revealed some details about this forthcoming Netflix documentary.

“When the documentary comes out everyone will say I’m a total idiot. When Portugal arrived I immediately told the president about it. When Saudi Arabia arrived I immediately told the president about it. This is why I don’t think they talk to other coaches behind my back, for me it’s not like that because there is reciprocity.”

Mourinho is currently unemployed since being laid off by Roma on January 16, with whom he won the Europa Conference League 2022 (which was their first trophy in 14 years).

Mourinho has won 26 major trophies which include two titles with Chelsea in 2005 and 2006, both of which were won under Roman Abramovich’s ownership, and a treble-winning season at Inter Milan in 2011. In addition, he won the 2012 La Liga championship with Real Madrid, the 2015 Premier League trophy upon his return to Chelsea, and the 2017 Europa League championship with Manchester United.

He seems to have lost some of his charm in recent years, particularly following his unpleasant time at Tottenham Hotspur and his criticism of the team’s poor play. His conduct towards Anthony Taylor following Roma’s Europa League final loss to Sevilla last season is only one example of how he has been criticised for his treatment of match officials in other instances.

John Battsek (who also produced the Beckham film) is producing the documentary, while Joe Pearlman, director of Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling, Now and Robbie Williams is directing it.

The film will look at the lawless carnage that took place when Italy defeated England on penalties in the 2020 European Championship final. The final at Wembley Stadium could only hold 60,000 due to COVID laws, meaning that there would be vacant seats. As a result, people stormed the stadium, transforming the initial excitement into mayhem.

Published in December 2021, the independent review by Baroness Casey of Blackstock stated that a day that ought to have been a celebration turned into “a source of national shame” and that there were just a few “near misses” that prevented it from becoming yet another chapter in the tragic history of football.
