The latest announcement from Audi is a Special One: José Mourinho, one of the greatest football managers of all time, has joined the brand as an Audi ambassador.

The news breaks at a pivotal time for the premium German car manufacturer, with Audi Centres across the UK having fully reopened now for service business, and in England sales business (since June 1), following government guidance. It also comes hot on the heels of the Premier League’s announcement that top-flight matches will resume from 17 June.

The Tottenham Hotspur head coach has just taken delivery of an Audi Q8, a striking coupé-SUV with sophistication in every detail, at the Tottenham Hotspur Training Centre.

The Q8 features the very latest state-of-the-art technologies, including the Multi Media Interface with dual touch screens, a fully digital virtual cockpit, HD Matrix LED dynamic headlights and, of course, the iconic quattro all-wheel drive system. It’s the perfect match for a manager synonymous with style, excellence and innovation.

José Mourinho says: “It is a great privilege to become an Audi ambassador. It is a luxury brand with a phenomenal reputation for quality, technology and safety around the world. Audi UK has been a great partner to my club, and I look forward to working with them myself. “

Andrew Doyle, Director of Audi UK, adds: “José is unquestionably one of the best managers in the history of football, having won two Champions Leagues, two UEFA Cup / Europa Leagues, and a number of league titles in England, Spain, Italy and Portugal.

“You don’t reach those stellar heights without an unerring commitment to excellence and forward thinking. That’s why we are sure our well-known philosophy of ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ chimes with his own. We are so pleased to welcome José on board as an Audi ambassador.”

Audi is the Official Car Partner of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
