A frank chat with the 'Special One'
For three consecutive summers,
Mourinho's Inter Milan will be part of a four-team tournament this summer that will see him face his old club in Chelsea, his bitter domestic archrivals in AC Milan as well as Mexican giant Club América.
During the recent international break, Mourinho took a quick jaunt to Southern California to make some preliminary preparations for the so-called World Football Challenge. I was fortunate enough to sit down with him at a ritzy Beverly Hills locale to discuss all things football with the self-proclaimed "Special One."
My second point, which is in connection with this, is that we should have an age limit on player transfers. I am not a fan of a 14-year-old boy leaving his country to go immediately to a big club. They first must become a man -- they must have education, socially and culturally. I would probably close the door for transfers of players younger than 17 or 18.
