As we know Jose Mourinho or commonly known as “The Special One” a title given to him by some players, coaches, and critics as one of the best soccer coaches of all time, and is known by his strong temperament that marks Mourinho between the hated lists in soccer. But now is not about football we’re not going to talk about The Special One either, we’re going to focus on his Special Wife Matilde “Tami” Faria.
52-year-old Matilde Faria met her husband Jose Mourinho, 55, when they were teenagers in a restaurant in Setúbal, Portugal, where she grew up after her family moved from Angola where she was born.
The young couple enjoyed afternoon discos when Faria was just 14 and Mourinho was 17. They sort of change their lifestyle after Matilde Faria became a philosophy student and he a more mature soccer player.
Faria and Mourinho married in 1989; their first child was a girl born in 1996, they named her Matilda. Four years later they had their second child, a son José Mário, Jr.
Mourinho dedicated most part of his life in being a good father; he said his family is the center of his life.
