116908. So when they have Mourinho and Benitez joining the Premiership they should say it’s good for us, maybe these guys have something new to give. – Jose Mourinho

116920. Facing the press is not easy, but because you have to go, you have to try to take a lot of positive things for yourself from these face-to-face meetings. – Jose Mourinho

116921. And I think because of the passion of every English player and every English supporter, and every English journalist for the game, most of the game is played with passion, love for football and instinct, but in football you also have to think. – Jose Mourinho

116931. In five years I have never had a match where my team has had less possession than the opponents. – Jose Mourinho

116932. In the same way that I had to follow an Italian manager here, I can imagine that it was not easy for an Italian manager to follow me at Porto. – Jose Mourinho
