'Mourinho Loves His Man Utd Job!'

A former Chelsea star who won two Premier League titles under Jose Mourinho believes his ex-manager is happy at Manchester United, despite the pressure he is under.

The Portuguese tactician, who has seen his side lose two of their first four league games of the campaign, is reportedly not seeing eye to eye with United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and a few of his players.

Despite the hiccups, though, former Blues midfielder Claude Makelele has insisted Mourinho is happy in Manchester.

"I think Jose (Mourinho) loves the job he does. He loves football," the former France international said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"He's one of those amazing managers, I learnt a lot with him. He's a competitor. He wants to give love to his players all the time. He wants to progress with the players he has.

"Sometimes everywhere is different. Football changes a lot, it's like black and white, black and white, and he's still there. I wish him good luck for this season in the Premier League."

Makelele made 216 appearances for Chelsea between 2003 and 2008, scoring two goals and assisting a further six strikes.
