Can You Guess What The Man Utd Staff Call Mourinho?

Manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly been given a special nickname by the Manchester United staff – click here to see what it is!

The 54-year-old gets picked up at the Lowry Hotel and dropped off at Carrington (United's training ground) every single weekday.

Mourinho's personal chauffer is always on call for the manager, and this is why the former Chelsea boss has the nickname "Daisy".

The name originates from the classic 1990 film called Driving Miss Daisy, which starred Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.

"Apparently, it was one of the builders working on the Carrington site who first joked 'Here comes Daisy' when Jose's car pulled in one day," a Red Devils insider told The Sun.

'It caused a bit of a laugh and it has just spread around the place as a bit of a joke.

"The gaffer gets taken door-to-door, and probably hasn't driven more than a couple of miles himself since he arrived last summer.

"He can work peacefully in the back of the car but sometimes he needs to be quick for the airport and returning to London.

"The car is certainly quicker than Miss Daisy's, but Jose clearly enjoys the freedom of being ferried around.

"Nobody would dare joke about it to his face, though, he is the boss after all."

Did you expect Mourinho to have such a lighthearted nickname?
