Mour­inho calm and col­lected

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - Sport -

Manch­ester United man­ager Jose Mour­inho be­lieves he can keep his cool bet­ter than Liver­pool coun­ter­part Jur­gen Klopp.

Old Traf­ford will play host to the 50th Premier League meet­ing of the ri­vals to­mor­row as United look to ex­tend their nine­match win­ning streak in all com­pe­ti­tions.

Se­cond-placed Liver­pool have failed to win any of their three games in 2017 and would see their lead over United cut to two points should they lose.

Mour­inho cut a re­laxed fig­ure ahead of the match and be­lieves an­i­mated coun­ter­part Klopp is not quite as calm.

“I just think we like to win like ev­ery man­ager likes to win,” Mour­inho said. “Ev­ery­one has his own per­son­al­ity, ev­ery­one has his own style of coach­ing, his own style of lead­ing.

“Prob­a­bly we have some qual­i­ties that are sim­i­lar – for sure we have other qual­i­ties that make us re­ally dif­fer­ent per­sons and dif­fer­ent man­agers.

“He is as much mo­ti­vated as I am. I’m not sure if he is so calm as I am. But, you know, it is just one more big game in our ca­reers.”
