Jose Mourinho admits life in Manchester has been a “disaster” so far

Jose Mourinho has not enjoyed the best of starts as Manchester United manager.

The former Chelsea boss has already tasted defeat four times in his first 13 competitive games in charge of the Red Devils, who find themselves seventh in the Premier League table after nine rounds of fixtures.

But it is not just at work where Mourinho is struggling. He is having a hard time at home too.

Since being appointed at Old Trafford in May, the 53-year-old has been living in a hotel, which seems to be stressing him out.

Media intrusion is also taking its toll on the Special One, whose side suffered a 4-0 defeat against Chelsea on Sunday.

“You know the history of the paparazzi, for the hotel and the brand that sponsors me, the clothes brand, [it] is amazing because they are there every day,” Mourinho is quoted as saying by The Telegraph. “Everybody knows the name of the hotel. Everybody knows the last arrivals of that brand. So for them, it is amazing.

“For me it’s a bit of a disaster because I want sometimes to walk a little bit and I can’t. I just want to cross the bridge and go for a restaurant. I can’t, so it is really bad. But I have my apps and I can ask for food to also be delivered.”

In terms of football, things could get even worse for Mourinho tonight if his side lose in the EFL Cup to Manchester City, who have already beaten the Red Devils in the Premier League this season.
