Maurizio Sarri insists manager Jose Mourinho deserves more respect

Maurizio Sarri insists manager Jose Mourinho deserves more respect”

José Mourinho has said he will not gloat if Manchester United beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday because he has too much respect for his former club. Apart from that it is another match for me.

"No I am not happy, honestly, but if someone has to be the man, I would prefer it to be myself than my players".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been no stranger to criticising his own team. Yes it bothers me, because I am a man, like you are. "Because I am a man, like you are".

It is thought Mourinho believes the charge - which is likely to carry a touchline ban if proven - is another example of the witch-hunt against him but he refused to vent his true feelings yesterday for fear of inviting further punishment.

Pressed on whether he felt victimised by the charge, he said: "If I answer to your question I probably have another process, because I can not imply bias, so my answer is no answer". Would I celebrate like insane my team's goal or victory at Stamford Bridge?

That 3-2 victory over Newcastle United before the worldwide break eased talk surrounding Mourinho's job but a bad performance against Chelsea would ramp up the pressure ahead of games against Juventus and Manchester City. Everything is going well for them, they have good results.

"I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don't think Chelsea will sell him to Manchester United", said the United boss. In order to get something out of the game, they will have to nullify Eden Hazard.

Mourinho believes the good feeling remains from that victory in United's last match before the global break.

He is willing to take all the blame for United's poor results, but has admitted for the first time that it bothers him because it has had a negative impact on his squad.

UEFA has fined them €5,000 for the late arrival of the team, and €10,000 for a delayed start to the match, while Valencia will pay €1,000 for the setting off of fireworks.

Chelsea FC have only lost one of their last 16 home games against Manchester United to highlight their dominance of this fixture throughout the Premier League era. It happened with me and Antonio [Conte].
