London: For Chelsea football team managerJose Mourinho the secret in everything is love as he reportedly remains unaware of his surly, smoldering charms and is utterly devoted to his wife Matilde Faria and family.

Mourinho has revealed that he is not the kind of person with a social life, and he is happy the way he is.

Mourinho, who speaks five languages, has won seven titles and is repeatedly named in polls of the World's Sexiest men, said that his wife trusts him, knows him and she has been with him since he was 17 and she was 15, adding that everything is so crystal clear for them, The Mirror reported.

He said that his social life doesn't exist, adding that he has his professional work and his family life. He said that he is not the kind of guy with a social life and is so happy the way he is.

Mourinho said that the secret in everything is love, adding that if one is successful in football, it is because they love football. He said that is one is successful in any job, he believes it is because they are in love with that job and if they have a successful family it is because people are in love with each other.

For Mourinho love is the basic.

For a man with such a busy career, father-of-two Jose puts a lot of effort into his personal life. He says he's a romantic at heart and recently got his wife's nickname, Tami, tattooed on his wrist as a surprise for her birthday.

The Chelsea boss said that he is romantic in the sense that the people he loves, they have to know that he love s them, and they do know it, and they feel it. He said that his wife did a tattoo and challenged him to do it, adding that at first he did not because he always felt, 'Urrrgh it hurts' and he does not have to do this to his skin, and so on.

But, he added that it was her birthday and he thought it would be a good gift to her. So, Mourinho, who has been married to Faria for 25 years now, said that he had his wife and his kids' names on his wrist and it was not as painful as he thought.

Mourinho said that for him, the perfect weekend is when he is at home with his family. He said that this is rare and not normal so he likes it.

Mourinho's confidence in his own success often sees him labelled the most arrogant coach in football. That does not bother him unless the person calling him arrogant is a personal acquaintance and then he gets very upset.

Mourinho said that if people say that he is an arrogant football manager, maybe they are not so wrong, adding that these people don't know him personally and they are not his friends or family.

But, he added that if some family or some friends say that he is arrogant, then he is upset because he is not an arrogant friend or not an arrogant family member.
