Mourinho Not Distracted

Jose Mourinho insists his impending court case in Madrid has not been a distraction to his Manchester United side ahead of Sunday’s trip to face Premier League champions Chelsea.

The Portuguese was summoned at the end of September over allegations he defrauded the Spanish tax authorities of €3.3 million between 2011 and 2012 during his time in charge of Real Madrid.

“No,” he said when asked if it’s been a distraction.

“It’s just a change of normal training time because I want to be there and I can’t be there in the morning, so I have to change the timings.”

United travel to Stamford Bridge in second, four points and two places above Antonio Conte’s side.
