JOSE MOURINHO SHOWED a touch of class in his press conference ahead of this weekend’s Chelsea-United clash.

The Portuguese coach is often perceived as having a fiery relationship with the press, but the opposite was the case on this occasion.

Before starting his interview, Mourinho made a point of greeting and shaking the hand of ITV News’ Rags Martel, who was returning to work following a battle with cancer.

Martel added on Twitter: “First #CFC conference since surviving cancer. Jose Mourinho spots me and shakes my hand: “Welcome back”. Special.”
