Tottenham’s game against Manchester United will no doubt be dominated by talk of Jose Mourinho’s return to Old Trafford.

The Portuguese manager looks happy and calm in his new role as Spurs head coach, something we rarely saw during his time at Manchester United, particularly towards the end.

The National have run a story detailing Mourinho’s feelings about his sacking by Man United last year and his relationship with the people who work at the club.

The report explains that while the 56-year-old felt let down by his players towards the end of his spell at Old Trafford, he still has a good relationship with many people who work at the club.

However, they do claim that the new Spurs boss was particularly irked by something that happened soon after his sacking.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer replaced Mourinho at the helm at Man Utd and the Norwegian’s management team apparently claimed soon after taking over that he had been appointed to restore harmony and lift players’ spirits.

Solksjaer’s comments apparently didn’t sit well at all with Mourinho back then, but it is claimed that he is not keen to bring up anything negative before the game and attract negative chants from the Old Trafford crowd.

Spurs Web Opinion

While Solskjaer’s comments might well have angered Mourinho back then, with a year gon by, it is unlikely that the Portuguese will be dwelling on to going into Wednesday’s game. The game will be our first big test of the Mourinho era and a win there will be a massive boost for the team.
