Jose Mourinho signed an African defender for Manchester United on Wednesday, so we put together a team of African players, including former Orlando Pirates striker Benni McCarthy, who were coached by the Portuguese tactician.
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.
