Chelsea manager has become one of the first people in the history of humankind to praise Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho’s ‘human quality.’
Sarri has admitted that Mourinho’s understanding after he became embroiled in a touchline fracas with Blues assistant Marco Ianni at Stamford Bridge last month has left a lasting impression on him.
Former Chelsea boss Mourinho (aka The Boogeyman) is very much public enemy number one among Premier League fans and the UK media, so to hear Sarri hail the Portuguese coaches character will come as a major surprise to many.
“Mourinho is a man of extraordinary human quality,” the Chelsea boss told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“He made a great impression on me when we met at Stamford Bridge and there was that incident involving my assistant.
“Professionally, there’s nothing more to add — he’s won everything, everywhere.”
