Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is known for parking the bus during big games and ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Manchester United on Saturday, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is expecting the same approach from Mourinho’s Manchester United.
Asked whether he expected United to come to stifle Chelsea, Sarri told reporters: “I think so.
“But I think also they are a very strong team.
“Maybe player by player they are the best team in the Premier League.
“At the moment I think City is better like a team, but player by player they are very, very strong. I don’t know if they will try to play their football.”
Mourinho is under huge pressure following Manchester United’s poor start to the season but Sarri insists Mourinho deserves respect.
“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.”
