Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho says he is looking forward to a return to Old Trafford when his side take on Manchester United in the Premier League tonight.

The Portuguese tactician returned to football managament when he was named as the Spurs boss a fortnight ago, and returns to the  “theatre of dreams” as a coach for the time since he was sacked there last year.

Addressing the media ahead of the clash, the former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid manager said:”I like to play, I like to play big matches, I like to play against the best teams and that is the most important thing,” Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference.

“To go back to Old Trafford is to go back to a place where I was happy. I can say that I was happy.

“I have a great relationship with Manchester United supporters. I went back as a pundit, which is a different perspective, I was really humbled by such a beautiful reception
