Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho insists he’s not an ‘enemy’ of Manchester United and was always ‘happy’ at the membership.

The Portuguese coach returns to the Theatre of Dreams on Wednesday for the primary time since he was sacked 11-and-a-half-months in the past.

Mourinho gained the League Cup and Europa League throughout his first season at the membership and United had been runners-up to Manchester City within the League and Chelsea within the FA Cup throughout his second time period.

However, relations between Mourinho and his board soured earlier than his third marketing campaign resulting from disagreements over the course of the membership.

Nevertheless, Mourinho insists he is trying ahead to returning to his membership and says he has ‘great relations’ with United followers.

‘Going back to Old Trafford is to go back to a place where I was happy,’ stated Mourinho.

I can say that. I’ve an excellent relation with the United supporters. I went again as a pundit, which is a unique perspective. I was actually humbled by such a good looking reception.

‘I left the membership. I took my time to course of every thing that occurred, took my time to organize myself for the subsequent problem and actually Manchester United for me now could be in my guide of experiences, my historical past guide.

‘At United I gained and I realized. My time after I left was an excellent time for me. It just isn’t for me to analyse United now. I analyse them as an opponent, how they play. How can we beat them? How can they beat us? For me that’s the vital factor

‘A nice reaction is probably to me but during the game the support will be for Solskjaer. That’s the character of a spot with an unimaginable historical past & with followers that perceive clearly what ardour for a membership is. They love their membership, in order that they love Solskjaer.

I’m not a villain, I’m not an enemy however I’m the coach that’s making an attempt to win towards Manchester United. That’s the best way I believe they (the followers) are going to look at me.’

United are sweating over the health of Scott McTominay ahead of the go to of Spurs.

The Scot has been out for near a month with an ankle situation.
