> Mour­inho la­bels life in Manch­ester a ‘disaster’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

JOSE MOUR­INHO’S stint at Manch­ester United ap­pears to be go­ing from bad to worse af­ter the man­ager re­cently de­scribed his cur­rent liv­ing ar­range­ments in the city as a ‘disaster’. De­spite tak­ing over as the United boss in Au­gust, the Por­tuguese has since been liv­ing out of a suit­case at The Lowry Ho­tel in the city’s cen­tre. His wife and chil­dren, on the other hand, con­tinue to live in the fam­ily’s Lon­don home close to his former club Chelsea. Al­though Mour­inho has hinted at buy­ing an apart­ment in Manch­ester, he made it clear that his wife Tami and chil­dren Matilde and Jose Jnr are un­likely to be join­ing any­time soon. Talk­ing to Sky Sports he said: “Buy a house? I do not know, I do not know. “But the re­al­ity is that my daugh­ter will be 20 next week, my son will be 17 in a cou­ple of months. They are very sta­ble. Univer­sity in Lon­don. Foot­ball in Lon­don. Friends. “So they are in an age where they can’t chase me like they did be­fore. So for the first time the fam­ily lives in a dif­fer­ent way. We try to feel it, we try to see the evo­lu­tion of our feel­ings and see how we cope with the sit­u­a­tion.

“But maybe if I can get a good apart­ment, not these gi­ant houses that the press says I’m go­ing to buy! I will never buy that! But if I find a nice apart­ment with a good con­nec­tion from the garage to the apart­ment, maybe I do it, but I can’t cook!”

Mour­inho also hit out against the pa­parazzi, com­plain­ing that they have made life in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult for him.

“You know the his­tory of the pa­parazzi, for the ho­tel and the brand that spon­sors me, the clothes brand, is amaz­ing be­cause they are there ev­ery day,” he added.

“Ev­ery­body knows the name of the ho­tel! Ev­ery­body knows the last arrivals of that brand! So for them, it is amaz­ing.

“For me it’s a bit of a disaster be­cause I want some­times to walk a lit­tle bit and I can’t. I just want to cross the bridge and go for a restau­rant! I can’t, so it is re­ally bad!

“But I have my apps and I can ask for food to also be de­liv­ered, which I do some­times!” – The In­de­pen­dent
