Jose Mourinho is to soon get his very own cartoon and trading card game “Mourinho and The Special Ones”. The game’s name is derived from the title the Chelsea boss gave himself during his first stint at the London club.

The cartoon show features Mourinho’s name and likeness but not his voice.

The company behind the show, Sports Stars Media, have described the show thus:

The opportunity of a lifetime comes by when you least expect it and for Alex and his friends, a chance meeting with their hero, changes their lives forever. What was supposed to be a simple football match attracted the attention of the world’s greatest football coach. The Special One himself, Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho is so impressed with Alex and his friends that he decides to help them follow their dream whilst also settling a few old scores with his longtime nemesis, Viktor Von Haii, the owner of the Junior Sharks football team.

Alex and his team mates have been given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. But do they have what it takes to be the best and realise their potential to become…. The Special Ones.

“I believe the series Mourinho and the Special Ones truly combine education and entertainment. I am proud to be part of this project,” the Chelsea manager was quoted as saying.

A website BoardGameGeek.com describes the card game:

Mourinho and the Special Ones (MSO) is a trading card game based on the TV series of the same name. Two players build themselves a team of footballers and a draw deck of skills and tactics then go head-to-head against each other.
The game is played over two halves on a simplified playing area of lines (Forward, Midfield, Defense) and zones (Wing and Centre) that represent the Pitch.
When you are the attacking player, you will attempt to pass the ball around the pitch, avoiding tackles by the defending player, until you decide to try and score a goal. Skill and tactic cards are used to boost the attributes of footballers to make them better in these situations.
The winning team is the one that scores the most goals.
The game also incorporates Augmented Reality on the cards

The show will go on air on August 31st in Portugal, with plans to expand the show to Europe and UK also under consideration.
