Jose Mourinho is at it again…
Today, while discussing his Manchester United future, the Portuguese took an extremely thinly-veiled dig at his rivals Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte.
Mourinho was claiming he’s still very passionate about the United job, suggesting that because he doesn’t act like a ‘clown’ (a clear reference to the antics of Klopp and Conte on the sideline), the media thinks he no longer cares.
“Because I don’t behave as a clown on the touchline, it means that I lost my passion,” Mourinho told the Standard.
“I prefer to behave the way I am doing it, much more mature, better for my team and myself, I don’t think you have to behave like a crazy guy on the touchline to have that passion.
“That passion, you see it every day. The way a person is dedicated to his work, not what you do in front of the cameras.”
Can’t he defend his own position without putting down others?
What have the actions of Liverpool’s, Chelsea’s or Manchester City’s managers got to do with him?
Are they the reason his team lost to Bristol City and are nowhere near the top of the table despite gargantuan spending?
Never mind. In fairness, it just looks like Mou is cracking up a little longer than normal. Usually, it takes three seasons.
