This challenge is to reflect the success that Jose Mourinho had as a manager while also trying to achieve something he so nearly did.

To start off your career you must manage in Europe with a high ranking team from associations ranked 6th – 10th. This would be; Russia, Portugal, Belgium, Netherlands & Ukraine.

Within your first two seasons you have to win the Europa League or Champions League, Domestic League, and Domestic Cup. On your final season you must win one European trophy.

After that success you are then allowed to move on to a team from the top 5 ranked European associations. This would be; Spain, England, Germany, Italy and Spain.

Within your first season you must win the Domestic League and if you are in a league that has two domestic cups; at least win one of them. The other requirement within your first season is to also reach the semi-finals of the Champions League. Overall you must be at the club for at least two seasons.

To achieve something Mourinho so nearly did, you can become the first manager to win the Champions League at two separate clubs in back-to-back years.

To finish off your career you can then move onto one of the other top flight teams in one of the other top 5 ranked associations. There you must win a treble within three seasons (compared to Jose doing it in 2 seasons).

This is your challenge. Despite his divisive qualities, Jose Mourinho is one of the best managers to grace the game in the modern era. Likewise you as a manager must try and replicate his success to the best of your ability. As a quick overview this is what you must accomplish;

First two seasons; Domestic Cup, Domestic League, European Trophy at final season.
Bonuses; Win treble, win both Europa League in first season and Champions League in second.
Extra; Beat the most points winning total at the end of the domestic season.

Season 3; Win Domestic League, if two domestic cups win one. Semi-Finals of Champions League.
Bonuses; Beat a defensive, points total or goal scoring record.
Extra; Win a treble with at least the Champions League as one trophy.

Season 4&5; Win Domestic League (must in season 4), at least make finals of Champions League.

Season 6: Move to another top 5 association club. Win domestic league.
Bonuses; Do not choose the previous year's domestic league winners.
Extra; Win with an aging squad and/or with players that want to leave the club.

Season 7: Treble with the Champions League and Domestic League.
Bonuses; Set record of points in domestic competition.
Extra; Sell your best player and your best striker and accomplish all of the above.

There you go; best of luck. Lets see if you are as good as Jose. And remember, no cheating.
