Jose Mourinho has proved it once again that he is fully focused on his future at Old Trafford and not bother about the past when he refused to sign a Chelsea shirt during the pre-season tour in China.
A video has emerged of the new Manchester United manager being offered an opportunity to put his signature on a fan’s Chelsea jersey while on the tour but he promptly denied.
Mourinho shook his head in the direction of the supporter and proceeded to sign other fans’ belongings instead.
It’s clear Mourinho wants to be focused on his future at Old Trafford and that he will not be too sentimental about his time at Stamford Bridge.
Manchester United’s friendly against Manchester City in Beijing on Monday could be cancelled.
According to the latest reports, torrential rain forecast in the Chinese capital has put the game on a knife-edge.
United travel to the Chinese capital on Saturday after Friday’s tour opener against Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai. The meeting with City, if it goes ahead, would be the first Manchester derby to be staged on foreign soil.
The fierce rivals are scheduled to play in front of a sell-out crowd at the Bird’s Nest Stadium. Both are competing in the International Champions Cup (ICC) this summer.
But thunderstorms and rain forecast on Monday ahead of the 8pm local time kick-off has put the game in doubt.
If it does get called off, there are no plans to reschedule the game due to City playing Borussia Dortmund in Shenzhen on July 28.
