5 Footballers who followed their managers after they departed
- A look at few football players who were signed by their managers after their departure, multiple number of times
#3 Ricardo Carvalho and Jose Mourinho
Carvalho was signed by none other than Jose Mourinho not once but on two different occasions. The Portuguese centre-back has played with the self-proclaimed 'Special One' for more than a decade.
He was initially playing for Porto before the arrival of Jose Mourinho in 2002. After taking the Champions League title in 2004, Mourinho departed for Stamford Bridge and signed the Portuguese star as soon as he arrived. He then established himself as one of the most important defenders for the Blues back in the mid-2000s
However, the cycle did not end here as Mourinho, while in charge of Real Madrid in 2010 made yet another offer to Carvalho while he was a Chelsea player. Without a shadow of a doubt, Carvalho became a Real Madrid player in no time at all. Well, it is sure that Ricardo Carvalho is one of his favorite players and none can change that particular fact!
