Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that he is having trouble adapting to living in the city.
The Portuguese is still living in a hotel in Manchester, while his family have stayed in London – where his daughter goes to university and his son is in Fulham’s academy.
‘Buy a house? I do not know… I do not know,’ Mourinho told Sky Sports.
‘But the reality is that my daughter will be 20 next week. My son will be 17 in a couple of months. They are very stable… university in London, football in London, friends.
‘So, they are at an age where they can’t chase me like they did before. So, for the first time, the family lives in a different way. We try to feel it, we try to see the evolution of our feelings and see how we cope with the situation.
‘But maybe, if I can get a good apartment… not these giant houses that the press says I’m going to buy. I will never buy that! But if I find a nice apartment with a good connection from the garage to the apartment, maybe I do it – but I can’t cook!’
The 53-year-old also admits it has been a ‘disaster’ having photographers waiting outside his hotel every day.
‘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,’ he added.
‘Everybody knows the name of the hotel. Everybody knows the last arrivals of that brand. So, for them, it is amazing.
‘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.
‘But I have my apps and I can ask for food to also be delivered, which I do sometimes.’
