Jose Mourinho has heaped praise on Sheffield United following their excellent start to the 2019/20 Premier League season.
The former Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid manager is currently working as a pundit for Sky Sports and declared his admiration for the Blades on Super Sunday recently.
Should Sheffield United sign Jack Rodwell?
When discussing who has impressed him most in the Premier League so far, the Portuguese said: “Chelsea, Leicester and especially Sheffield United. I think they are doing really really really well,” (via @azzle94).
It is testament to the job that Chris Wilder is doing at Bramall Lane that a manager who has won three Premier League titles, two Serie A titles and two Champions League titles is speaking about the Blades in such glowing terms.
Several Sheffield United supporters have been reacting to Mourinho’s comments on Twitter, with some cheekily suggesting that he is after a job in South Yorkshire.
Here is what some fans had to say…
I have always liked Jose, now he really is on my Christmas card list! ⚔️🤗🤗⚔️

It won’t have escaped his attention that sir Chris is being mentioned with “bigger” jobs, Jose just wants to keep potential employers happy
