Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho believes he is the best-behaved manager in the Premier League.

Mourinho’s touchline antics have been well documented over the years, and the Portuguese has previously clashed with football’s authorities.

However, the 55-year old coach says he has changed his ways and feels he is now one of the best behaved managers.

“I’m fully committed to win the award this season of the best-behaved manager on the touchline,” Mourinho said.

“I’m serious – I prepare myself, I’m really happy. I’m not free of losing my temper, my control, in one match. I’m not perfect.

“There are so many awards – performance of the week, manager of the month and this and that – they should give one to the guy that behaves best on the touchline and it should be the fourth official to vote. I’m pretty sure that I would win.”

Mourinho has been sent to the stands once this season – during the 1-0 win at Southampton on 23 September. The United boss had encroached on to the pitch in the final few seconds of the game as he tried to get his players back into position.
