Former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho claim he will be on his best behaviour during his controversial match against Chelsea but hope his side return to old Trafford victorious.
The now Manchester United Manager won three Premier League titles with his former team, Chelsea, but has lost all three of his previous visits to Stamford Bridge as Man United manager without scoring a goal.
And while the Portuguese claimed that the Fixture fixture is not like any other as far as he is concerned but agreed that he would not celebrate if United beat Chelsea to reduce the pressure on him.
“For me, it is another game. Would I crazily celebrate if my team scores at Stamford Bridge or my team’s victory at Stamford Bridge? No, I don’t think so,” said Mourinho.
“I will control myself and respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and stadium for many years.”
Manchester United are desperately in need of a win this weekend as they already trail Premier League League toppers Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool by seven points after eight games.
“I think I will do well for my team, players, supporters. I am 100 percent Manchester United – no more space for anything other than respect for the stadium and the fans,” says Mourinho.
United Manager also promised to control his emotions comes at the end of a week in which he had been charged by the FA following comments he made towards a TV camera, at the end of the game which he beats Newcastle 3-2 before the international break.
It was confirmed that Mourinho uses “abusive, insulting or improper words” in his native language.
Even though Mourinho was not suspended in the match against this weekend at Stamford Bridge, United requested an extension for his official response and the FA allowed him until Wednesday to do so.
When asked Mourinho whether he felt he was being victimised by the governing body, he claimed he is more harshly treated than other managers.
“If I respond to your question I have another process because I cannot imply bias, so my answer is no answer,” he added. .
