Jose Mourinho has had a road named after him in his hometown of Setubal. The Manchester United boss has used the international break to head back to Portugal and the place of his birth. Mourinho expressed his gratitude at the gesture and thanked the locals for keeping his feet on the ground despite his incredible career in management.
He said: “I come to Setubal because I love Setubal. Because my friends call me Ze and leave the ‘Special One’ bull****”
“I am very grateful. I trade tributes for victories and this is the only one I wouldn’t trade.
“It’s a situation a little bit strange for me, because Setubal continues to be the only city where I feel like myself, Ze, Ze Mario.
“Where people treat me normally and make me feel good. Where I have made, and try to make, my profession a little extra to my essence, to who I am. I’m pure Setubalense, with all the qualities and defects.
“And because of this I am grateful for this honour and it makes me emotional.”
Mourinho is unlikely to be feeling normal when Manchester United return to Premier League action after the international break.
The unbeaten Red Devils take on fierce rivals Liverpool at Anfield as they look to continue their unbeaten record.
