“He’s man that speaks with two tongues. Once he expressed his emotional love for Chelsea and now he is singing a new song of a secret lover for Man-u.” Bemoaned a Chelsea fan in Abuja.
Some analysts are of the opinion that “the Happy one who became sad at Chelsea, decided to accept Man-u job not solely on professional grounds, but to redeem his image.”
“He felt disgraced out of Chelsea and eager to come back strong for Man-U.”
But Mourinho’s Agent Jorge Mendes has a different opinion. “Jose is a professional and doesn’t really work with emotional attachment like a typical fan. He goes to anywhere he feels his services is most needed.”
“Abramovich isn’t an emotional man, so why should Mourinho be.” Reacted Tope Adebayo, a fan in Lagos Nigeria.
