José Manuel Mourinho Félix is a Portuguese retired football goalkeeper and manager and the father of Chelsea currently manager, José "The special One" Mourinho. As a professional, Mourinho Félix played during sixteen seasons, making his top division debuts in the 1958–59 campaign with Vitória de Setúbal. He spent nine 1/2 seasons with the Sado River side, helping it win two Portuguese Cups and also appearing in as many Inter-Cities Fairs Cup editions.Midway through the 1968–69 season, Félix signed for fellow league club C.F. Os Belenenses, finishing in a personal best-ever second position in 1972–73 - with the subsequent qualification to the UEFA Cup – and retiring in June of the following year at the age of 36. He appeared once for the Portuguese national team, in the Brazil Independence Cup in 1972, coming on as a substitute for S.L. Benfica's José Henrique in the dying minutes of a 2–1 win against the Republic of Ireland. Mourinho Félix started coaching on a full basis in 1976 (he had worked as an assistant with Belenenses while still an active player). His first spell in the top level was in the 1980–81 season with Amora FC, which he had led to promotion (as champions) the previous year. Félix's only full season in the main category was 1983–84, leading Rio Ave to the ninth place and the final of the domestic cup. In the mid-late 90s he twice came to the rescue of main club Vitória Setúbal, with top division relegation befalling in 1995 as the team only won twice in his 12 games in charge.
