Jose Mourinho‘s plans for the Sunday crucial tie against his former club were disrupted by the fact that he had to travel to Madrid on Friday to settle a tax case with the Spanish authorities
Manchester United trip to Stamford Bridge has turned out to be full illicit affairs since Mourinho joined United in May 2016, but he says he is still well known with Chelsea‘s supporters.
Jose Mourinho is a standout amongst the most significant figures in Chelsea history, having finished the west London club’s 50-year sit tight for a League title in 2005 toward the finish of his first season as the Blue’s manager.
He won the Premier League again with them the following season before leaving in 2007 and afterward, in the wake of returning in 2013, secured the title for a third time two years after the fact.
In any case, his two visits with United last season pulled in serious controversy. He had a touchline showdown with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte after a 4-0 league crush last October and United’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals in March was a terrible-tempered issue.
Mourinho consistently bumps upon Chelsea supporters as regardless he has his family home in Knightsbridge, two or three miles from their ground, and says he is still warmly welcomed by them.
“I walk down the street and outside the football heat, outside the football environment, I see so many Chelsea fans, especially in the area where I live,” Mourinho said.
“I see so many Chelsea supporters and I didn’t have one single one that wasn’t nice.
“What happened in the football stadium was a different thing. When I walk in the street in London, I am just a normal guy.
“When I go to Stamford Bridge and sit in that dugout, on the right side of the tunnel, I am the manager of their opponents, so I accept every possible reaction with the utmost respect.”
