Manchester United manager keen to respect former club Chelsea
Jose Mourinho will resist gloating at Stamford Bridge if Manchester United score or win at Stamford Bridge
October 19th, 2018
Two seasons ago, Jose Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge with his Red Devils side and saw them lose 4-0, with the tone set after Pedro had given Chelsea an early lead.
Mourinho cut a disgruntled figure on the touchline and he was even more unhappy when Antonio Conte celebrated excitedly after Chelsea’s fourth goal, with the former admitting he would be more cautious should United get something on Saturday.
He said: “Would I celebrate like crazy if my team scored a goal at Stamford Bridge or my team claimed victory? 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.
“To do that should [mean] I completely lost my emotional control, which is not easy. Apart from that it is another match for me. I want to do well for my team, players, the supporters – I am 100% Manchester United tomorrow; no more space than respect for the stadium and the fans.”
