Chris Hughton praises Mourinho, say he’s good for English football
Hughton’s Albion will host Manchester United today by 4pm with questions about Mourinho’s mood at the start of his third season in charge at Old Trafford.
Managers manage and when they stop they try to go somewhere else and manage, said Hughton.
In any question about Jose, he has been a great advantage for our game here and the Premier League, and will continue to be so.
I have nothing but admiration for José, and on a personal level, I have met him many times when we played against them, and for someone who entered the English game he is a manager who has always talked well about football here.
He always goes to watch games and plays an important role in what we do with the LMA, he’s someone who strongly supports that.
Mourinho has said that managers now look more like coaches.
Whatever Jose says is what he feels, said Hughton. The role has changed: the former English-type administrator who would be involved in many other aspects of the game, such as contracts, etc., has changed drastically.
Today’s manager is very much a coach, responsible for the team’s tactics and results, the areas he would have been involved with in the past he doesn’t now and I agree with him.
