Jose Mourinho: "I was happy at Manchester United"


Share this article


Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho returns to Manchester United tomorrow and is expecting a warm welcome for the Premier League encounter. 

Spurs lie fifth in the Premier League, with United ninth in advance of the encounter at Old Trafford.

Spurs quartet Ben Davies, Erik Lamela, Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm are out of the match.

Mourinho is reflecting on his time in Manchester without any rancour: 

"I was happy. I have a great relationship with the Manchester United supporters. I went back as a pundit and I was humbled by such a beautiful reception. Tomorrow I go back as the coach of the team that is going to try to beat Manchester United. That maybe gives a different perspective. I understand what they want is exactly the opposite of what I want. I want Tottenham to win. They want Manchester United to win."

Mourinho wouldn't be drawn on Manchester United's current position: 

"This is a closed chapter for me. I love the club. I took my time to process everything that happened. I took my time to prepare myself for the next challenge and honestly, Manchester United for me now is in my book of experiences. It's in my history book. A little bit like Mr. Mandela was saying some time - 'You never lose. You win or you learn.'  At United, I won and I learned and my time after I left was a good time for me. It's not for me to analyse United now."
