Further to my post of the '98 side, Randy. There are many uncanny resemblances. Capello was not really wanted either, and RM played some ugly football under his watch as well. He also made RM pay 22M Euros for a worthless Argentine CB named Walter Samuel (at least Essien was really cheap).
Were Mourinho to win the CL, his legacy would be similar. Loved and welcome, but not respected.
Capello comes to Spain with great frequency (he loves Spanish ham and wine, which he personally inspects and has shipped back home), and loves Spain as a country (Spain and Italy are far from identical, but are very similar in many respects).
He is loved for his achievements (he won a league, maybe two, as well), but not respected, in a football sense.
