Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly promised a group of supporters that he will personally celebrate with them if his team win the Premier League title.
He is unlikely to deliver on that promise this season, though, as the Red Devils currently sit 14 points adrift of leaders Chelsea.
The Portuguese coach gave himself the nickname the ‘Special One’ when he arrived in England to take charge of Chelsea in 2004.
It has stuck with him over the years, and despite the aura that his status brings, he has vowed to mingle with supporters when the club eventually lift the title.
According to The Sun, while speaking to fanzine United We Stand, Mourinho said that he would travel back to Manchester with a group of fans who make their way to every away game in the ‘Monkey Bus’.
The 54-year-old was quoted as saying:
“Let’s do that after we are crowned champions in an away game. Then I’ll come back with you rather than the team.”
United may not be challengers for the much-coveted trophy this season, but they are still in the running for the top four.
At the moment they currently sit in sixth place, two points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal and just one behind arch rivals Liverpool.
