Mourinho was sacked by United in December 2018 after a two-and-a-half-year spell and the coach has since joined Tottenham.

“This is a closed chapter for me,” he told a media conference. “I left the club and took my time to process everything that happened.

“I took my time to prepare myself for the next challenge. Honestly, Manchester United for me now is in my book of experiences; it’s in my history book.

“I feel good. I like to play big matches; I like to play against the best teams and that is the most important thing. Going back to Old Trafford is to go back to a place where I was happy. I can say that I was happy. I have a great relationship with Manchester United supporters.

“I went back as a pundit, which is a different perspective. I was really humbled by such a beautiful reception.

“On Wednesday, I go back as the coach of the team that is going is try to beat Manchester United and that maybe gives a different perspective.”
