Jose Mourinho was taking no prisoners in this press conference this afternoon, where he point blank denied reports in the papers that he was considering his future at Manchester United.

He was also questioned about his passion, now that he is quieter on the touchline than he used to be. Mourinho has claimed he doesn’t need to behave like a clown to prove he is passionate.

Because I don’t behave like a clown on the touchline, it means that I lost my passion? I prefer to behave the way I am doing it. I don’t think you have to behave like a crazy guy on the touchline to have that passion. It’s the way a person is dedicated to his work, not what you do in front of the cameras.

He surely isn’t making a dig at Jurgen Klopp or Antonio Conte here, right?
