Manchester United boss José Mourinho says he is struggling to adapt to life in the city, labelling his living arrangements as “a bit of a disaster”.
The Portuguese has endured a mixed start to his stint as United boss, having lost three of his nine league games before last night’s League Cup derby against Pep Guardiola’s Man City.
Away from the pitch, the 53-year-old says he is far from
settled in England’s north-west city, staying without his family for the first time.
The Special One says: “For me it’s a bit of a disaster because I want sometimes to walk a little bit and I can’t.
“I just want to cross the bridge and go to a restaurant. I can’t, so it is really bad.
“Buy a house? I do not know, I do not know. The reality is that my daughter will be 20 next week, my son will be 17 in a couple of months. So they are in an age where they can’t chase me like they did before.
“So for the first time the family lives in a different way.”
Mourinho also says he hates having to deal with the paparazzi every day.
He adds: “You know the history of the paparazzi. For the hotel and the brand that sponsors me, the clothes brand, it’s amazing because they are there every day.
“Everybody knows the name of the hotel.”
Meanwhile, United centreback Eric Bailly has been ruled out for two months after injuring his knee in their 4-0 Premier League defeat at Chelsea on Sunday.
