Man Utd and Chelsea fans react to emotional Jose Mourinho clip as manager tears up
Jose Mourinho has left Manchester United and Chelsea fans among those feeling sympathetic for their out-of-work former manager.
Mourinho was sacked by United back in December and has not returned to management since.
Despite receiving some offers, nothing has matched his ambition as he hopes to return to the top level.
Having won trophies at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and United, Mourinho’s track record is among the best in the business.
But his reputation has taken a hit after though times at Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford.
The 56-year-old’s sacking at both clubs came with plenty of attention and he has struggled to recover.
Having taken a break from management in 2019, though, Mourinho is looking to get back into the game.
He has signed on as a pundit at Sky Sports for the new season but his big dream is clearly to get back in the dugout.
While he left Chelsea and United on a sour not in recent years, both sets of fans were largely sympathetic towards the manager who clearly misses being a part of the game he loves.
The emotional clip of him discussing his love for football showed Mourinho tearing up as he said: “I was just enjoying… The moment I went to professional football I had to click.

“Now it’s serious, serious stuff, and there’s been serious stuff until now non-stop.”
Wiping his face he added: “And now I stop, and instead of enjoying it I can’t really enjoy it. I miss it.”
Football fans across the world reacted to the video and even ex-Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas posted on Twitter: “Legend. We miss you too. Come back soon Mister.”
Man Utd supporters, who are now fully behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, mostly want to see Mourinho back in the game soon.
One said: “Football ain’t ready for a fully motivated Jose Mourinho.”
Another Red Devils supporter added: “ Mou is a winner. Style of play is irrelevant. If you win, you win. This man is the most accomplished manager in the game that is still working. He’s in decline but I believe this break will help him a lot. Hope he does well and finds the right club.”
A third posted: “He’s still the best.”
A fourth even jokingly admitted: “Can’t believe I backed Pogba over this gem. Shame on me”.
Chelsea fans reacted similarly, as one watched the video and said: “Forever my manager”.
Another posted: “Miss you special one”.
One quickly forgot about Frank Lampard too and pleaded: “Come back to chelsea we need you”.
A final Chelsea fan posted two blue hearts and said: “This man is just so passionate about his football.”
