Lisbon - Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is to have a street named after him in Setubal, his Portuguese city of birth, the region's town hall announced Thursday.

According to a resolution passed unanimously, the name of the Portuguese manager, who received the keys to the city - located roughly 50km south of Lisbon - in 2009, "must also be eternalised on the local geography".

"Jose Mourinho is today, in a fully deserved way, one of the most prestigious and most qualified coaches in the entire world," the statement added.
