Manchester United travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday to take on Chelsea who are still unbeaten across all competition this season tomorrow. Unlike Chelsea, the Reds campaign this season has been full of ups and downs and they lie in 8th on the league table after 3 defeats in the domestic league.
Recall that Manchester United’s coach, Jose Mourinho, stormed out of post match press conference demanding for respect after his side’s 3-0 defeat to Tottenham last August and also boasted by saying ‘ I am more successful than the remaining 19 managers in England’.
Chelsea’s new coach, Maurizio Sarri, while fielding questions from journalists ahead of the clash revealed that the Red Devils coach deserve some respect irrespective of the outcome of tomorrow’s match. He added that the former Chelsea coach has won a lot of trophies across all competitions.
What he said below:
“We are talking about a coach who has won everything.
“He has won everywhere, so I think that I have to respect him. But I think also, you all have to respect him.”
United travel to Stamford Bridge knowing they trail their opponents by seven points, but Sarri believes Mourinho’s side are possibly the best in the league.
He explained: “They are a very strong team. Maybe player-by-player, they are the best team in the Premier League.
“At the moment I think City is better like a team. But player-by-player, they are really very strong.”
