Former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has rated Jose Mourinho as the best coach in the history of football.
The 36-year-old won the Copa Del Rey during his short spell at Real Madrid under the watch of the Portuguese-born tactician.
Adebayor believes the 'Special One' merits the tag due to the success rate he has enjoyed virtually everywhere he has gone.
The two-time Champions League winner with Porto and Inter Milan currently manages Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.
And the Togo international believes the 57-year-old will definitely end Spurs' endless wait for silverware.
Adebayor told AS of his former boss: “I love Mourinho, we had a great relationship and he was the one who brought me to Madrid, although it wasn't easy for him to find a place for me in the side.
“The only trophy I have ever won was at Madrid with him. Now he's at Tottenham and I wish him the best of luck. He is the best coach in the history of football.”
The attacker also played for Crystal Palace before his two-year spell in Turkey with İstanbul Basaksehir and Kayserispor between 2017 and 2019.
The 36-year-old Togolese, who was last on the books of Paraguayan side Olimpia, added: “I've played for Monaco, Arsenal and City, among other teams before coming to Madrid and so I could see the difference.
“Madrid is way ahead of the rest. I enjoyed a wonderful experience there. I love Real Madrid and I would like to go back and say my goodbyes when I get the chance.
“Signing for Madrid was the best moment of my life.
“The organization was incredible, how I was treated, the affection from the fans... everything.”
