Mourinho: Saya punya ‘rahasia’ yang akan saya simpan sampai saya ‘benar-benar tua’

Jose Mourinho mengatakan bahwa dia memiliki “rahasia” mengenai karirnya yang ingin dia jaga sampai dia “benar-benar benar-benar tua”.

 

Dalam sebuah wawancara luas dengan saluran televisi Prancis telefoot, Mourinho mengaku pernah menolak kesempatan untuk mengelola Barcelona.

 

 

Bos Manchester United telah berhasil di Spanyol sekali saja, di Real Madrid dari tahun 2010 sampai 2013, namun hampir pindah ke negara tersebut dua tahun sebelumnya.

“Itu adalah keputusan saya, putri saya ingin tinggal di University of London dan saya pikir itu saat yang tepat untuk pergi,” katanya.

 

“Ini adalah momen penting bagi keluargaku.

 

“Ada juga alasan profesional di balik keputusan saya. Saya meraih hasil terbaik saat saya bahagia dan saya tidak senang di Madrid lagi.

 

“Saya tidak senang di tahun ketiga saya di sana.”

 

Portugis hampir mengambil alih dari Frank Rijkaard di Barcelona pada 2008, namun menolak kesempatan tersebut. Pep Guardiola ditunjuk sebagai gantinya.

 

“Mungkin saya akan mengungkapkan kebenaran suatu hari nanti,” katanya menolak Barca. “Ada sesuatu tentang karir saya yang ingin saya rahasiakan.

 

“Saya akan mengatakan yang sebenarnya kapan saya akan benar-benar tua.”

 

Palace fans were also cheered by the sight of Julian Speroni in their goal. While Wayne Hennessey has suffered simply for not being Speroni, the Wales keeper has never really convinced many of the Selhurst Park faithful, who have been calling for the return of the 38-year-old with every passing mistake by the current No.1. They got their way due to a knock Hennessey sustained on international duty, and the cult hero fielded everything thrown at him on his first Premier League appearance since the final day of the 2015/16 season.

 

Ahead of Speroni, Mamadou Sakho was typically strong while Scott Dann turned in one of his best Palace performances for some time as Chelsea toiled. The fact Palace resembled something like a cohesive unit must be down in part to the fortnight Hodgson has had on the training ground with his players who were not away on international duty.

 

But for all Palace’s solidity and character, it was Zaha who made the difference. “I’m so tired,” he proclaimed upon the final whistle but as he gets fitter and sharper, Zaha will prove to be the talisman Hodgson needs to help him carry Palace up the table.

There were signs of rust – a second-half chance disappeared after the forward dallied – but the Palace academy product was a simple, straightforward choice for the man of the match award. Even when he tired, which showed in the final quarter, Hodgson opted to freshen up elsewhere, with Jeffrey Schlupp, Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur ahead of Zaha in the line for a breather.
