Here are Top XI to ever play under Jose Mourinho.
Formation: 4.-4-2

Goalkeeper: David De Gea
Julio Cesar might have won every single competition with Mourinho as his boss at Inter, but his potential is nowhere near David De Gea at Manchester United. For many, The Spaniard is by far the best goalkeeper in the world at the moment, and the insane statistics showed that he saved 81.6 % of all shots faced this season are just icing on the cake.

Left-back: Ashley Cole
A controversial figure but a great footballer, Ashley Cole is probably the best left back to ever play under Jose Mourinho. Brought from Arsenal, the England international set conspicuous standards on the fullback position that are present even today.

Right back: Javier Zanetti
Maybe the most endearing personality to ever play football, there was no one better than Javier Zanetti to ever make an appearance under Jose Mourinho on the right back position. To be fair, that can be said for every manager. The Tractor has played for.

Center-back: John Terry

Center-back: Ricardo Carvalho
Great defender who always kept a low profile. However, the fact that Jose Mourinho brought Carvalho in three different clubs (Real Madrid, Porto, and Chelsea) with him, speaks how high he rated him. His compatriot won numerous trophies at every club and will be remembered as the silent leader to ever play under Jose.

Defensive midfield: Esteban Cambiasso
The never-tiring Argentinian was the key figure in Jose’s plans while at Inter. His artistry and will to perfectly execute the orders of a manager makes him the perfect fit for defensive midfield.

Central midfield: Frank Lampard
Chelsea’s leading top scorer and Premier League all-time best scoring midfielder.
Humble but deadly, that’s Frank Lampard. A real leader and regarding footballing skills, by miles the best midfield player to ever make an appearance under Jose Mourinho.

Left midfield: Mesut Ozil
The German midfielder was usually criticized for being capricious and not interested in the game, but then again, no one can doubt his footballing potential. Brought from Werder, Mesut played a key part of Jose’s Real Madrid midfield which won La Liga, Copa del Rey, and Spanish Supercopa.

Right midfield: Wesley Sneijder
Once described by Mourinho himself as the perfect no 10, the Dutch midfielder played a massive role while at Inter. The Sniper was special because of his ability to play with both feet and make a killer pass in the box, every striker desires.

Center forward: Cristiano Ronaldo
No words can describe the current best player in the world. Quick, powerful, high with both feet, leader. Mourinho once said ‘’ If Messi is the best on the planet, Ronaldo is the best in the universe’’, clear indicators on how high Jose rates the Real Madrid hitman.

Center forward: Didier Drogba
A killer instinct so many would desire, Drogba was probably the deadliest striker to ever play under Jose Mourinho.
Along with Frank Lampard and John Terry, Didier played his vital role in Chelsea’s conquering team that twice won The Premier League. ‘’Tito’’ had his best years with Mourinho for which he will always be grateful.
