While it was relatively easy to find African midfielders and forwards who have featured under Mourinho, the selection at the back was quite limited.

We only found the third-choice goalkeeper from the coach's very first season at Chelsea, and three defenders who have African roots but received very limited game time under the 53-year-old.

The midfielders and forwards were selected based on the amount of games played, as well as goals scored, under Mourinho.
