José Mourinho is the current coach of Real Madrid football club in the Spanish La Liga. He has previously managed other top football teams including Chelsea FC in the British Premier League and Inter Milan in the Italian Serie A. During his time at Serie A, José Mourinho won the first ever "treble" in Italian history, the Serie A league title, Coppa Italia, and the UEFA Champions League.
Amongst a host of accolades, Mourinho has won the IFFHS Best Football Manager award several times and was acknowledged with the first ever FIFA Ballon d'Or Best Coach Award in 2010.
"With his unparalleled success both on and off the pitch, calm authority and no nonsense attitude, José Mourinho was a natural fit and an ideal choice for Braun's latest shaving campaign. In addition, José's unmistakable charisma, style, passion and performance which are the trademarks of his life and work, are also synonymous with Braun's brand and heritage," says Eric Sacharowitz, Commercial Head of Braun South Africa.
While José Mourinho is thrilled to be working with Braun, involvement with brand partnerships are few and far between for the much in demand and highly respected football manager. He comments "Since the beginning I promised myself that I wouldn't just do brand partnerships for the money. First of all I do them because I feel something with the product. Braun is a brand that I like. It's a brand with prestige. They think I am good for their image. I also think being connected with Braun is good for my image. It's a good partnership."
The campaign that José Mourinho and Braun are working on together showcases highlights from Braun's premium men's dry shaving portfolio, including the Braun Series 7, which features intelligent Sonic Technology to provide Braun's most thorough and technologically advanced shave ever and the Braun Series 3, the perfect product for men who enjoy relaxing their grooming routine over the weekend but who find the Monday morning shave a particular challenge.
