JOSE MOURINHO once left the Chelsea dressing room stunned following a rant at Ricardo Carvalho.
The Portuguese upheld high standards during his first stint at Stamford Bridge between 2004 and 2007.
In his first season in charge his side conceded just 15 goals across the entire campaign, which remains a Premier League record.
If standards ever slipped, Mourinho would not hold back in his criticism.
Recalling one such occasion, former Blue William Gallas told Genting Casino of his old boss: “He was a winner. He loved his players and was happy to manage us.
“When he shouted at these players, he showed everyone in the squad that we were on the same level. Status didn’t mean anything to Jose.

“I can remember one occasion where he went after Carvalho after we drew with Middlesbrough. We were doing the video analysis, and he went crazy at Carvalho.
“I was satto Geremi and we were looking at each other and thought ‘wow!’.”

Gallas, however, still thinks that his former boss has another special run to come.
The 46-year-old added: “I think Jose has got something special in him. I think he can have one more big moment as a manager; one more last dance.
“I do think it all depends on the players he is working with. Jose needs players who are warriors.
“He needs the type of player that will fight for him but are also big enough to accept criticism from a manager.
“A lot of these players do not accept criticism. They don’t understand how hard you have to work for one year to achieve something as a player.
“If you want to lift a trophy at the end of the season, you need to give everything. You need to have the mentality of a warrior. You never give up. You fight.
“You accept that you will suffer for twelve months. I don’t think the new generation are ready to make these sacrifices.
“For Jose’s last dance, he has to be at a club with players that are ready to work with the intensity that he does.”
Mourinho was recently linked with the vacancy at Saudi Arabian side Al-Shabab.
