Ander Herrera has sung the praises of Jose Mourinho today, claiming that he has no problems with the manager despite his limited playing time this season. He claims that the manager is completely different behind the scenes to the image that he portrays to others and that Mourinho doesn’t care what other people think of him.
Mourinho backs you up if you give it your all and so I understand football. Play or not, this is a group and the groups win. Mourinho treats you like a person and is a direct and upfront person. He has no problems in telling you what he thinks. It never happens behind your back.
Mourinho is a coach who suffers a lot every defeat and I understand that he must always be like that. One of the things that I value most about Mourinho is that he does not care what they say about him. It is a brutal quality because people tend to be affected by what they say about him but with Jose, on the other hand, it apparently does not affect him at all.
Mourinho has nothing to do with the image he projects outwardly to others. He is not the rude and serious person he is in front of the press.
