Ahead of Manchester United’s visit to Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri insists Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho deserves respect because he has won everything in football.
Mourinho has been under huge pressure this season following United’s poor start to the season with Manchester United legends like Paul Scholes criticising the Portuguese boss recently.
“We are talking about a coach that has won everything, everywhere, so I think you have to respect him,” Sarri told reporters.
“I think you all have to respect him.
“I think he is a very good coach, a very good manager and one of the best in the world.”
Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte had a running feud with Mourinho but Sarri believes Conte respects Mourinho and vice-versa.
“I don’t know about the problem with Antonio, on the pitch you can be a little nervous and tense, you can say everything in that moment,” Sarri added.
“I think Conte respects Mourinho and visa versa.”
