"To Old Trafford return means, to return to a place where I was happy," said José Mourinho at the press conference. "I can tell. I have a great relation to the Manchester United Fans." Also, he had received more than 50 messages from friends from Manchester. With these friends he wanted to meet before the Match and go for a drink.
The Portuguese coached United from may 2016 until his dismissal in December 2018. He won with the Red Devils in the Supercup, the League Cup and the Europa League. The Portuguese, was the third United Manager after the resignation of Sir Alex Ferguson, but in the end, despite the title, hardly better than that of predecessor David Moyes and Louis van Gaal. Also absent-he rode with big earners such as Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez. Nevertheless, he expects respect for his return. "Even if it is clear to me that United Fans want is exactly the opposite of what I want," he said. He wanted to finally win the Tottenham. And: " Manchester United is almost a year. I am Tottenham."

Both Teams need points
Currently, both Teams are outside the qualification places for the Champions League, and in need of points. Tottenham Hotspur is Fifth in the Premier League table, four places ahead of the Ninth Manchester United. Mourinho's Tottenham have only two points ahead of his former Club. The duel is not only from personal but also from a sporting point of view, very interesting. "I like the big games," said Mourinho. "I like to play against the best Teams. This is the most Important thing."
And the odds are not for the Portuguese bad. Since he holds the sceptre at Tottenham Hotspur in the Hand, it goes up for the London. From three Games, three victories and ten goals are the result. The Spurs in particular are in the game to the front again in danger. However, the defense – actually, the showpiece of Mourinho Teams – prepares the 56-Year-old still Worry. A-Zero was not yet. Quite the contrary: Against West Ham, Piraeus and Bournemouth it put two goals against.
Manchester United, meanwhile, has seen a miserable week behind in the Premier League against Sheffield United and Aston Villa, respectively, a draw in the Europa League defeat against Astana. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is with only 4 Wins in 14 League games under tremendous pressure. Rumors that he could be rid of his Job, if he loses the game, called the Norwegian in the press conference as a "lie". He focused on the game and was convinced of his match plan.
