Jose Mourinho comments on Anfield crowd ahead of Liverpool v Man United

Jose Mourinho has his say on Manchester United's trip to Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday night

Jose Mourinho has admitted that he is a big fan of Liverpool’s stadium as Manchester United prepare for their crunch Premier League trip to Anfield on Monday night.

The Red Devils head into Monday’s game looking to return to winning ways after the disappointment of their 1-1 draw with Stoke City before the international break.

Mourinho’s men have made a stuttering start to the new season under the Portuguese coach and have already suffered defeats at the hands of Manchester City and Watford.

The United boss has plenty of experience of watching his teams play at Anfield from his time in charge at Chelsea.

And the former Blues boss has mixed memories of his trips to the Merseyside club in the past.

Speaking at his pre-match news conference on Friday, Mourinho said: “I always like to play at Anfield.

“I’ve won big matches and lost big matches there, so I cannot say I like to go there as I am always successful as this is not true.

“I like the atmosphere and the characteristics of the matches.

“It is a big match that can be comparable to Inter v Milan and Real v Barcelona, maybe Porto v Benfica – this I like.”

Manchester United finished fifth and won the FA Cup last season under Louis van Gaal.
