On his first visit to Carrington, Jose Mourinho looked like a regular tourist
‘The Special One’ shared some words with club icon Sir Bobby Charlton too.

JOSE MOURINHO HAS wasted little time in familiarising himself with his new surroundings as he paid a visit to Manchester United’s Carrington training ground for the very first time on Monday afternoon.

It seems as if he picked up a few goodies too, going by this picture of him – posted by his wife, Mathilde, to her Twitter account.

Mourinho was only appointed as the club’s new manager last week but was given a guided tour of the facility by United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, while he also met iconic former player and current board member Sir Bobby Charlton too.

Charlton told Mourinho: ‘I’m very happy to see you’.

Upon arriving at reception, Mourinho made a point of greeting every member of the United staff that were present – awkwardly leaving Woodward waiting in order to do so.

That should buy him some early credit from the die-hard fans.
