Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has revealed why he lived at Lowry when he was Manchester United manager.

The Portuguese was criticized for living in a hotel rather than buying an apartment in Manchester.

Speaking on the case, Mourinho joked he would have been living on “fried eggs and sausages” if he’d been living on his own house.

“You know how I would be unhappy? I would be unhappy if I was in a house on my own,” he said. “I would have to clean, I don’t want. I would have to iron, I don’t know how to. I have to cook, I would cook fried eggs and sausages – that’s the only thing I can do. I would be very unhappy. I lived in an amazing apartment, it was not a room. It was mine all the time. It was not like after one week I had to leave. No, it was mine. I left everything there, I had my television, my books, my computer. It was a flat, with ‘bring me a coffee latte, please’ or ‘I don’t want to go down for dinner, bring my dinner up’. I was watching football or doing work with one of my assistants I would ask ‘bring us food’. I had everything, if I was in an apartment alone it would be much more difficult. I was fine, more than fine,” he said.
