Hi Big Rob

What do you think Jose's lowest measurement (at night) is ?
Editor Rob
He can fall to 5ft 9, especially with all the medals he wears round his neck.
Nik said on 1/Nov/19
I've seen him listed as 174 cm on an online site!
Nik said on 1/Nov/19
He is about 0.75" above average for a Portuguese man!
khaled taban said on 15/Jun/19
Honestly I can't see this man being 176cm, he is above 174cm ofc but not as tall as 176 either.
You could argue 174.6 or 175cm, not more
World Citizen said on 18/Jan/19
When you are seeing him beside Maradona, you can already know that the 174 listing is too low.
NewFace said on 30/Oct/18
Click Here Longer lower leg (if anything the first pic is further away which would reduce the lengthening effect but is close enough that the knees are almost level)
NewFace said on 29/Oct/18
This guy is very Portuguese and I can't see him being 176cm tall. Those shoes in that pic do not have a natural angle at all. He is almost certainly 174cm at a low but is wearing small lifts most of the time.

No lifts here: Click Here

Mourhino is 177. He does pull off a 5'10 impression with other people and doesnt look more than 3 cm shorter than 5'11 Pep.
Parker said on 28/Apr/18
Here's a 5 inch gap

Now look at the pic I posted of Maradona with Mourinho, the one where you can see their feet.
lee168cm said on 22/Apr/18
That's not a 7 inch gap closer to 5 inches possibly 5.5
Parker said on 24/Mar/18
A good 7 inches taller than Maradona

Could you add Josep Guardiola? He's arguably the best manager in the world.

Rob what's your guess on guardiola's height? Google says he's 5'11(180cm). Do you agree?
James said on 31/Oct/17
Rob when you say his height is 176cm you mean his peak during the day? I mean generally about all the heights.
Editor Rob: like afternoon
Sonia said on 28/Oct/17
Mourinho is 1,77
jjj said on 9/Oct/17
@Editor Rob: He manages to pull off a 5'10 impression with a couple of celebs. Would you consider a 5'9.5 upgrade?

Would say Jose is a stronger 5'9", doubt he falls under the mark by much at night, maybe half a cm at most.
Sully said on 8/Jul/17
Always looks anywhere from 174 cm-177 cm.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jun/17
Percy said on 18/Mar/17
Rob, what determined you to list him as 175 cm?

I'm not saying you're wrong. He's a tricky one to pin down! He's looked taller than this with many people - more so, than most other 175 cm listed guys.

Those saying 5' 8" or shorter are way off!
Editor Rob: that's just the feeling I got from looking at him.

He doesn't look over 5 ft 9 with Rio Ferdinand.
Gwynbleidd said on 4/Apr/17
I would say Jose is 176 cm; about 5' 9.25".

@sa, you have a funny yet valid point. He literally grows and shrinks. I don't get it.

sometimes he looks akmost 180cm, but sometimes closer to 170cm, maybe he is reptiloid?
HonestSlovene said on 12/Mar/17
@Tarik People usually don't notice or give a damn unless the difference is like around 5 cm or more (in terms of lying about your height, lets be honest that most people say that they are taller and not shorter than they are XD). I guess you claiming anything about 175-177 cm would be fine anyway. I hardly know any job in that you require a height measurement these days though.

Hi Rob, I measured myself at 176.7cm after half hour of being waking up.Do you think if I put height down as 177cm for a job application would people notice any difference. Cheers
Editor Rob: Tarik, if you came to my office for a job and I seen you writing down 177 and looking only 176, you'd be out the door so fast, your head would still be spinning a week later! 👿👿 😉

but seriously, I think you are probably going to drop down to 175.5-6 range, but I doubt anybody is going to be bothering if you said 177 or 176.
Johnson said on 18/Feb/17
he looks as tall as Lineker 176.5-177

Johnson said on 18/Feb/17
Mourinho and Benitez look 177 cm the same height. They are slightly taller than Rooney
Blake said on 1/Feb/17
How tall do you think his son is? He was a youth goalkeeper for Fulham Fc I have heard.
Editor Rob: he could be nearly Jose's height now.
gian92 said on 19/Jan/17
For me 177 cm
Will 1.77 said on 21/Dec/16
Rob, unless Jose is a lift wearer, I'd say 177 cm actually looks closer! You seen him with Robbie Williams or Gary Lineker for example? Or with Arsene Wenger?

175 cm could be undercooking him a little. He's looked as close to 5' 10" as he has to 5' 9" on many occasions.
lolo said on 21/Dec/16
how is he taller than Nishikori?
walloftrump said on 8/Dec/16
Rob i think mourinho in fact is 177 cm slightly taller than 176 wayne rooney and almost the same as cesc fabregas who is 5ft10 so What do you think Rob??
Django said on 22/Nov/16
he's the classic 5'9 man. sometimes looks short, sometimes looks tall
Johnson said on 13/Nov/16
With 178 listed Nishikori

James said on 12/Oct/16
@Johnson Take under consideration that Kaká was listed as 185.6 cm and Cristiano as 186.5 cm, when Cristiano is shorter than Kaká. So this measurements are not completely reliable.

I would be even skeptical of the 181.5 cm range for Casillas. Either he was measured in shoes or he was standing on tiptoe. 181 cm flat maybe... But a weak 182 cm? No way! The difference between him and Ramos is too big.
Johnson said on 11/Oct/16
I do believe 182.2 listing for Casillas in medical that was leaked. Another thing is if he is forcing too much his posture and he is rather 181.5 cm. Anyway Casillas always has poorer posture than Ramos
MDV said on 10/Oct/16
Yes. In fact for Casillas you can argue 181 range and Ramos 183 range. Top listing for me
James said on 8/Oct/16
@MDV Still Casillas is 2 cm shorter than Ramos...
MDV said on 8/Oct/16
Ramos is 183 not 182...Sure tall as Gerrard if not taller
James said on 29/Sep/16
@Johnson In that pic he still looks 2 cm shorter than 182 cm Ramos...
Johnson said on 27/Sep/16
@James here you a have a good pic without angles Casillas Del Bosque and Ramos. Casillas appears 182 cm tall

Click Here
Johnson said on 27/Sep/16
Casillas appears shorter in the pics due to his bad posture. Raul is 179 cm tall and he appeared shorter in lots of pics due to his posture
James said on 25/Sep/16
@Johnson That measurement is completely wrong. Casillas is 2 cm shorter than 182 cm Sergio Ramos. And Ramos is 2 cm shorter than 184 cm Bale:

I am surprised that you ignored my pics where the obvious height difference between Ramos and Casillas is 2 cm:

Does he use lifts sometimes?

5ft 8, 5ft 9 is a little much for him
Nik said on 22/Sep/16
5 foot 8. May be 173.5 - 174 cm. Me: 171 cm barefoot.
Vibram said on 21/Sep/16
Looks 1cm less than Wayne Rooney, with Mourinho in dress shoes and rooney in football boots. Rooney is confirmed 176cm, so 174.5cm > 175cm seems right for Mourinho. A weak 5'9 or strong 5'8 either way.
Johnson said on 20/Sep/16
@James Casillas was listed 182.2 in Real Madrid site from medical. And I saw a listing when 15 year old of 182 cm from the youth squad
MD said on 19/Sep/16
Rob, I have no idea how tall this guy is as I'm not familiar with him, but to compare him with a clearly bent/hunched Chad Johnson is a bit much. lol
Editor Rob: he's not losing that much, about half inch I'd have said.
CNROM89 said on 19/Sep/16
I think Xabi Alonso is 182,5cm (weak 6') and Casillas is 181 cm.
joe joe said on 18/Sep/16
Rob Is it me or does Mourinho look like he's wearing lifts in his shoes in the foto up top?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't have said so, but then some sneakers might have a slightly more angled lace section than others.
James said on 18/Sep/16

Are you still convinced that Casillas is a legit 182 cm?
Johnson said on 18/Sep/16
@Mikel He doesn't claim 174 cm
CNROM89 said on 18/Sep/16

Xabi Alonso is taller than Casillas near 1 inches.
heightchecker34 said on 18/Sep/16
Regardless whether Mourinho is in the 174-176 cm range, that video with Anthony Joshua shows just how massive a legit 6'6 guy can look. Jose looks like a little boy in that clip. Its funny in the beginning of the clip when Joshua is running to meet Mourinho, those two guys next to him are even taller than he is! Must be security or part of his entourage.
James said on 18/Sep/16
@Johnson Xabi Alonso is around 182 cm flat, only a bit taller than Casillas.

Casillas along with Cristiano also looks 180 cm:

HonestSlovene said on 17/Sep/16
He never looked outside 174-177 cm or 5'8.5-5'9.5. I would say 175 cm / 5'9 if not 176.5 cm/ 5'9.5.
Johnson said on 17/Sep/16
@james but this picture can fool us, Xabi Alonso was measured 182.7 and looks similar to Casillas
Mikel said on 17/Sep/16
Jose is ****ed up. He can look even as 170 cm, and sometimes even more than 177 cm.
Rob, look here Click Here
If he is taller, why he claims to be 1,74m ? He doesn't seem to be a guy who wants to appear small (short). One of the strangest guy ever, hard to estimate his height.
I guess 170-180 :D
mike said on 17/Sep/16
Jose is more 174cm, he always lools a weak 5'9, but taller than 5'8
cgf said on 16/Sep/16
Those look like elevator shoes...

@Johnson Casillas is 180 cm compared with Gareth Bale

Johnson said on 16/Sep/16
@Gonzalo I think he is 177 cm similar to Mkhitaryan. Long time not seeing you here you should follow me if you are a freak of heights. I am martitaturas in twitter
HonestSlovene said on 16/Sep/16
@Paul 178 cm They are pretty close to each other - more or less the same height: Click Here
Archie said on 16/Sep/16
He is definitely 5'9, he's got about an inch or 2cm at least on 5'8(173) Henrikh Mkhitaryan,
Gonzalo said on 16/Sep/16
He can look taller than 1,75. More around 1`77-78
Paul 178 cm said on 15/Sep/16
I suppose a comparison with Wayne Rooney - who is a classic 5' 9" (175 cm) guy, would answer this one, Rob.
Paul 178 cm said on 15/Sep/16
Also, looked taller than this with Arsene Wenger. He looked level with Gary Lineker too, so 5' 9.5" is possible - unless, he has a slight footwear boost on occasions...
Paul 178 cm said on 15/Sep/16
Hmm, have you seen Jose with Robbie Williams though? Looked more 177 cm. Unless, Robbie is really closer to 180 cm...
Johnson said on 15/Sep/16
Mourinho and Casillas 182

184guy said on 15/Sep/16
Hard to see at 5'9 with AJ
Click Here
More like 5'8
By the,way
@Rob,how tall do you believe is the security next to Anthony ? I would have guess no less than 6'10
James said on 15/Sep/16
In his autobiography, Zlatan refered to Jose as a "short man with small shoulders". Well, I guess anyone under 6'2" is short to Zlatan :)

Imo he is somewhere between 174-175. Not sure if as low as 173cm.

Btw Rob, is 175cm solid 5'9" to you? I thought it was 176cm. Not sure if you listed some 175cm guys here as 5'8.75" or something like that
Alaba said on 15/Sep/16
I agree, 174.5 cm maximum, although 174 minimum.
Al Pacino said on 15/Sep/16
Click Here photo with an Inter legend- Zanetti, who is 178 cm.
Al Pacino said on 15/Sep/16
I am an Inter fan, so I know him quite a lot. He is wearing sometimes internal lifts or high shoes, sometimes not. It is why he may sometimes appear taller, sometimes not. I was in Appiano Gentile in the open training and his eyes were in the same height as mine, and I am 174 cm in the afternoon. As Andy says, he is no doubt 174, but 175 is a little too much. 174.5 is accurate.
Andy said on 14/Sep/16
My guess is that he's at least 174 cm but no taller than 175 cm, so I would go with 174,5 cm, I'm sure he hasn't lost a fraction of an inch even though he's already 53
Aza said on 14/Sep/16
Is a full inch shorter than 5'9
Editor Rob: actually see him with 6ft 1 Chad Johnson, I would be surprised if only 5ft 8.
GP said on 14/Sep/16
Good listing Rob. Do you think he might wear slight lifts during events or match time? I have noticed that the angle of his feet is higher like it's visible in the above photo.
Editor Rob: he doesn't seem a guy would wear lifts, but those are sometimes the guys who surprise you...
Puma said on 14/Sep/16
He listed 174 on google
No more than 174
Strong 173
Johnson said on 14/Sep/16
Great addition!! I think he is 177 cm (official height)
andre said on 14/Sep/16
he is shorter then that 5ft7.5 barefoot
MDV said on 14/Sep/16
He is listed at 174 cm but he can look even 177 cm sometimes.... not sure he is 5 foot 9
Borats Chicken said on 14/Sep/16
Rob, since He's 5'9 does that make Pep Guardiola near 5'10.75?
Editor Rob: it is arguable for Pep
