Mourinho snubs Man United

However, when he was once confronted with the question of the Premier League club he supports, Mourinho had the perfect answer.

According to 'the Special One' as he is fondly known, he will always be more Chelsea than Man United.

"Of course, my English connection is Chelsea, that's the way I see things, as a Chelsea man after two periods of Chelsea and six years," The Mirror quoted Mourinho saying in May 2022.

Mourinho spent six years at Stamford Bridge across two spells, with his first coming between 2004 and 2007.

He later returned in 2013 and spent another three years with them before he was sacked.

His sacking saw him land the Man United role in 2015, succeeding Louis Van Gaal, who had been sacked at the time.

Chelsea eyeing Oliver Glasner

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Eintracht Frankfurt boss Oliver Glasner has reportedly emerged as the firm favourite to take over from Graham Potter if Chelsea sacks the Englishman.

Potter has found himself on the receiving end in recent weeks following the Blues' frustrating run of form.

Reports claim that the Blues initially made contact with the Austrian while hunting for a successor to Thomas Tuchel before they eventually settled on Potter.

Glasner has enjoyed a significant rise to prominence after impressing since his arrival at Eintracht Frankfurt back in 2021.
