Only two teams other than Paris Saint-Germain have won the French League title in the past nine years - and the common factor between them is the 57-year-old Portuguese.

Newcastle's new owners have riches beyond most other clubs' dreams, but they have made it abundantly clear they want to run their new business in a sustainable way.
