Nottingham Forest of course were guided to glory by Brian Clough and, writing in the Belfast Telegraph (  Malcolm Brodie sees comparisons between him and the 'special one'. 'Fast forward the clock to today and you have in Mourinho a Clough reincarnated'. John McGovern meanwhile, the man who lifted the great trophy as the Reds saw off SV Hamburg, told : 'We just knew that if we went out and played to our strengths, which was something the manager hammered into you week after week – that it's what you do, not the opposition – then you are going to win the game.'
