Despite the continuous exchange of war words with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, Jose Mourinho claimed that dispute with fellow managers is not enjoying.
Manchester United boss Mourinho and Conte have been trading insults for over a week now.
When asked whether the Portuguese coach took pleasure from such feud said: “I don’t.
“When I start them I take the responsibility of that and I’ve started them many times,” he furthered.
“When I don’t start them it’s quite funny for me to see people on the other side acting like victims when they’re not the victims.
“But, really, I don’t enjoy. That’s why for me it’s over.”
Mourinho, 54, has been frequently involved in disputed between fellow managers.
It can be recalled that in 2005 he has described Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger as a “vouyer” and in 2014 referred to the Frenchman as a “specialist in failure.”
Mourinho admitted: “Sometimes it’s my fault. Sometimes it’s the other manager’s fault.
“In my case when I think it’s my fault and realise I should behave in a different way I’m the first one to apologise, like I did with Ranieri when I had the chance.
“That’s why our relations went from bad to good and from good to very good because I was man enough to apologise.”
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho’s squad is expected to host Stoke City (Sign Up on 12BET for betting tips). As the club welcomes the Potters, it cannot be hidden that there are increasing concerns over Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s long-term fitness. But the team coach simply played down rumors.
“Zlatan knows that at the highest level he’s in the last part of his career but his dream was always to end his career in Manchester United at the highest level,” the United boss said.
“As a leader in the dressing room, as a leader on the pitch, as a quality player on the pitch, I think he can do that, think he deserves that and I’m here to try to help him do that. He just needs to feel really happy with his knee.”
