Chelsea Vs ManUtd: What Mourinho Says He Will Do
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will be returning to a familiar ground on Saturday.
His team will be squaring up against his former club Cheslea and expectations are high.
But Jose insists he will be on his best behaviour on his return to Stamford Bridge.
The Portuguese won three Premier League titles in two successful spells in charge of Chelsea, but has lost all three of his previous visits to Stamford Bridge as United manager without even scoring a goal.
And while Mourinho claimed that the fixture is now just like any other as far as he is concerned, he also conceded that he would not celebrate should United break that run to ease the mounting pressure on their manager.
“For me, it is another game,” said Mourinho. “Would I celebrate like crazy my team’s goal at Stamford Bridge or my team’s victory at Stamford Bridge? I don’t think so.
“I think I would try to control myself and to respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and stadium for many years.”
Mourinho clashed with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte when he claimed the Italian had showed a lack of respect for whipping the home fans into a frenzy during a 4-0 thrashing of United in 2016.
The visitors are desperately in need of a win this weekend as they already trail Premier League leaders Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool by seven points after just eight games.
