The Chelsea manager beat Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger with a 186-point advantage, while Monaco’s Didier Deschamps finished in third position.

Mourinho, who last season guided Porto to the European Cup, has guided Chelsea to a 10-point lead at the top of the Barclays Premiership.

Barcelona boss Frank Rijkaard, whose team are dominating the Primera Liga, came fourth while ex-Valencia coach and now Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez finished in fifth position.

The top non-European was Argentinian Carlos Bianchi, coach of Boca Juniors, in sixth followed by Once Caldas boss Luis Fernando Montoya.

Carlo Ancelotti, who led Milan to the Serie A title last season, was eighth while Manchester United’s Alex Ferguson and new Real Madrid coach Wanderley Luxemburgo completed the top 10.
