Sousa as Mourinho?
The People/Scott Piecha - 23 November 2008

QPR's new boss Paulo Sousa is ready to become the new Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho took the Premier League by storm during his three year reign at Chelsea and Sousa is hoping to become the new Portuguese Prince of London.
Former Portugal international Sousa, who saw his new side lose 3-0 at Watford yesterday, said: "QPR may be in the Second Division but it smells and functions like a top flight football club. It is a very exciting challenge for me.
"I don't care what people say about my possible lack of experience. At certain moments in life you have to just take the plunge - that moment has come for me and I am not worried at all.
"Be the new Mourinho in London? I hope so because that would mean I had achieved sporting success
