Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has disclosed that he’ll respect Chelsea fans when his side clash with the Blues in the Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
Mourinho’s men head to the game following a 3-2 victory over Newcastle in their last Premier League fixture, while Chelsea defeated Southampton 3-0.
Mourinho said he would try to control himself should his team score at Chelsea’s home so as not to disrespect the West London fans.
“For me it’s another game. Would I celebrate like crazy, my team goal at Stamford Bridge or my team victory at Stamford Bridge? I don’t think so. I think I would try to control myself and to respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and stadium for many years,” Sportmole quoted Mourinho as saying at Friday’s pre-match press conference.
“To do that should be something where I completely lost my emotional control, which is not easy, so I would think which stadium I am in, which public is in the stands, but apart from that it’s another match for me.
“I want to do well for my team, players, support, I am 100% Manchester United tomorrow, no more space than respect for the stadium and the fans.”
The kick-off time for the match is 12:30pm.
