José Mourinho joined Inter in the summer of 2008. Within two seasons, the Portuguese manager had won a Champions League with the Nerazzurri. It was his second victory in Europe’s premier club competition, six years after his first with Porto.

In this exclusive video from The Coaches’ Voice, Mourinho talks us through how he beat Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona 3-1 in their Champions League semi final first leg back in April 2010 – paying particular attention to how he successfully shackled Lionel Messi and, at the other end, exploited the spaces behind Barca’s attacking full-backs.

Inter would go on to beat Bayern Munich in the final, winning Europe’s most prized trophy for the first time since 1965.
