Mourinho Denies Scouting Trip With Perisic On Man United’s Radar
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has denied that he attended Friday’s game between Croatia and Ukraine, to scout some players.
Mourinho was in the stands, as Croatia won 1-0 in a 2018 World Cup qualifier.
There were however reports that he was there to meet with representatives of Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic, who did not feature because of suspension.
The Portuguese insists he was there to enjoy the sunshine.
Mourinho told HNTV after the game: “I have no hidden cause, I just came to enjoy my free days and visit some friends like Predrag Mijatovic and Davor Suker.
“I know everyone believes I came to watch some players, but in today’s football you don’t have to travel around in order to see some players, I know all of them well.
“I came as a person that wants to relax and enjoy the nice weather, unlike the rain in Manchester…”
