Mourinho has a reputation for being involved in contentious moments on the touchline and is not afraid of conflict.

When asked about who would make a great Bond villain by a Guardian reader for a feature in their newspaper, iconic British director, Mendes said;

 “I have no idea. They’ve made it so difficult for themselves for two reasons. One is they turned the franchise into something extraordinary with Daniel Craig. If you think about the actors that might have been up for the role after Pierce Brosnan, a lot of people would have said, ‘No way.’

“They would not have even been considered for the role, not wanted to be considered for the role. Now, there’s barely an actor in the world who would turn it down. And that’s because of Daniel and because what’s happened to the franchise since. So that’s a great thing.

“The bad thing is he’s dead. You tell me how they get out of that one. I want to ask, ‘How would you get out of it?’ As for a great Bond villain? José Mourinho. You can’t get better than that can you?”

Rami Malek and Donald Pleasence are among the actors who have played James Bond villains.
