Jose Mourinho does not see Chelsea vs Manchester United on Sunday as special
The coach does not feel agrieved Chelsea booed him last time his side played Chelsea
Mourinho won two Premier League titles with Chelsea over two spells as coach
Jose Mourinho says the match between Chelsea and Manchester United on Sunday there is is “just a game, no difference”.
The Portuguese says there is no extra emotion attached despite the abuse he suffered on his return to his former club last month in the FA Cup.
We recall that on that occasion, United suffered a 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Stamford Bridge on March 13.
Mourinho was taunted with chants of ‘Judas’ and ‘you’re not special any more’ from a home support that used to worship the Portuguese who won three Premier League titles over two spells in charge.
Mourinho has nor play down any ill-feeling ahead of the teams’ meeting at Old Trafford at the weekend.
Speaking after the 1-1 Europa League draw at Anderlecht on Thursday, Mourinho said: “You say the word emotion but for me it is just a game, one more game, no difference for me.”
Asked if the game was a special occasion for him, the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan coach said: “No, not at all.”
Chelsea go into the weekend seven points clear of Tottenham at the summit and 18 in front of a United side languishing in fifth.
