Jose Mourinho has promised to control and respect himself when Manchester United take on his former club Chelsea on Saturday.
The United boss made the statement while addressing journalists at a press conference this afternoon.
According to him, if his side pulls off a shock win against his old club, Chelsea, he wouldn’t rub it in their faces.
Mourinho is bound to get a hostile reception from supporters who like to tell him ‘you’re not special anymore’, he said:
‘For me, this is another game
‘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.
‘I would think which stadium I am in, which public is in the stands but apart from that it is another match for me.
‘I want to do well for my team, players and support.
‘I am 100% Manchester United tomorrow.’
Mourinho started his Premier League career in London when he was named manager of Chelsea in June 2004, before leaving early in the 2007/08 campaign. He later returned to the Blues on 3 June 2013 and left the club again by mutual consent in 2015.
In May 2016, Mourinho signed a three-year deal as manager of Manchester United.
