Jose Mourinho Names His 10 Best Players In The World

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has named the 10 players he believes are the best in the world.

Click through the gallery to see the names mentioned by Mourinho!

United lost 1-0 to Barca in a friendly on Thursday morning, and Mourinho was full of praise for the Catalan club's superstars afterwards.

The Portuguese tactician believes the likes of Neymar and Lionel Messi are both "one of a kind" players, and named eight others he believes are in the same bracket, including the Red Devils' Paul Pogba.

"With Messi and Neymar, there is only one (of each). There are not two," Mourinho told MUTV.

"Luis Suarez, Andres Iniesta, Gerard Pique, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, there is only one of them. So they can only play for one club and not two.

"We cannot have them. They belong to the clubs. You can be working very hard tactically to improve your team, to improve your players, but some players are special and against that nature there is nothing you can do.

"In the real matches you try to compensate the difference in quality with a certain tactical organisation, and with that you can win. In football, it is possible for a team to be better than the sum of the parts.

"But the parts are amazing. Their relationship with the ball is amazing. You can argue about the occupation of space, tactics and compact blocks, but the player's relationship with the ball is still the most important thing.

"Even as an opponent on the bench like I am, it is beautiful to see the guys' relationship with the ball.

"Today, one of my players, Paul Pogba, showed the level. He showed that he belongs at that level."

besides Pogba inability to score goals, he's one of the most complete players in the world - skill ✔✔✔✔ -Ball control ✔✔✔✔✓ -dribbling ✔✔✔✓ (Messi made it impossible for anyone to get a 5) -speed ✔✔✔✔ -power ✔✔✔✔ -strength ✔✔✔✔ -Energy ✔✔✔✔✔ -defense ✔✔✔✔✔ (simply the best mid-fielder who's quickest to fall back to defense when under attack) -reflex ✔✔✔✔✔ -passes ✔✔✔✔ -crosses ✔✔✔✓ -instinct ✔✔✔ (he struggles in observation. He can't seem to have a panoramic view of the field to make excellent judgment as to where to be at what time so he spends a lot of time running around chasing the ball. Needs to improve here) Pogba is a naturally delicate player... he tip toes around the pitch like he doesn't want to dirty his shoes... he is bouncy when he runs around a lot.

Thats what is all about with soccer and the ball. You make friends with the ball. You keep it to you and you must never be afraid if it. Thats exactly what i used to do. Dan Malesela talks the same language.Some players are not playing the ball its as if they kick it away to avoid mistakes. Hold the ball, play it by giving it to your team mate. We call it sharing the ball while moving firward. Easy!!!!!

@Ntsika239 you know your soccer man, you're one of the few bloggers I can have a good debate with(about soccer) coz you even state facts to support your opinion which is what most bloggers lack in this site. Obviously we might not see things the same way(which is natural) but things facts we might get somewhere

@Ntsika239 thats true bru ,but also the headline by our editor is misleading for sho as I dawt that Mou said that that is his top ten. now the guys are starting to pick players.do u see that there is no EPL player there except Pop obvius?its his rivals. I think Kane cud score up to 50 shud he go to a bigger team,he is a poacher

@thabanggi u certainly don't knw wat u talking about .. Those 3 player terrorised EPL ...bale had a more successful era at spurs than at Madrid ...luka continued where he left of at spurs ...Suarez scored over 30 goals in EPL in one season, not a single penalty ...am still yet to see hazard n core reaching those heights BT anyway hazard is a good player

Pique doesn't belong in that list Mou. His flaws and incompetence is concealed by his teammate's overall quality. Take him to a small team and you'll how much of a cow he is.
