“A Sad Guy doesn’t Work Well”, says Jose Mourinho

“A Sad Guy doesn’t Work Well”, says Jose Mourinho
Jose Mourinho, coach of Manchester United Football Club of England, has stated that he would be a sad guy, if fans of the club want him to live in a house he does not like. According to www.manutd.com , Mourinho has been living in a city centre hotel since he became coach of Manchester United in the summer of 2016.

According to that website, Mourinho has assured fans of the club that he is happy with his living conditions and would be lonely if he lived in a large house without his assistants nearby.

Manchester United would face Derby County tonight, in a third round tie of the Emirates FA cup competition. In a press conference held yesterday ahead of that tie, a journalist reportedly asked Mourinho if he “understands the concerns” of fans who do not understand his decision not to buy a house in Manchester.

He reportedly replied: “No. If the fans want me to be comfortable, then that’s the way I feel very comfortable, because I am very lazy and because I like to arrive in the hotel. I don’t want anyone to be worried about me living in a two-square metre room.”

“I am living in an apartment inside of a hotel where I have all the comfort and support, where I have everything that I want, like I’m living in a house.”

“So, if they are worried about me being comfortable and happy and supported, I really am. If they want me to be in some house that I don’t like, lonely and away from my assistants, then I could do this for them. But then I would be a sad guy and a sad guy doesn’t work well.”

Mourinho also spoke about the difference between his historic achievements in Chelsea Football Club of London and his current times in Manchester United. He reportedly said:

“The difference now between Chelsea and Manchester United is that I really belong to Chelsea’s history, because I won three Premier Leagues. I won cups. I won lots of things there. The club won their first Premier League in 2004 so I think I have a history there.”

“Here my history is the history of somebody that works hard every day and we won the only competition that the club had never won, but everybody knows that the Europa League is not the El Dorado of football. I come in a moment where it’s more difficult to make history.”

“So probably people look at me still as the Jose who came to Chelsea in 2004, was at Chelsea for two periods and was champion. But that is my past, it’s my past. My present is Manchester United and I hope my future is Manchester United too.”
