WHILE known for his sartorial dress sense and designer suits he is not what most of us think of as a ‘rockstar.’

But Spanish Rolling Stone magazine has named Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho, 48, as their Rockstar of the Year for 2011.

The Portuguese manager was saluted for his ‘defiance, polemic message, impertinent wit and above all his provocative attitude on the bench and at press conferences’.

It comes after the father-of-two led Real Madrid to victory in the Copa del Rey tournament for the first time since 1993.

Having lost at home to Barcelona his weekend, some people might be questioning the award.
