Mourinho spoke about Matić and indicated how many teams were fighting for the title
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho revealed he was very surprised in the summer when Nemanja Matic`s agent called him and told him he could attract the Chelsea Sergeant. The move has been extremely successful, and all the analysts of the island were amazed at the fact that the champions broke up with Matic against the ? 40million. The Portuguese also expressed the opinion that six teams will be fighting for the Premier League title this season. `I was surprised when Matic`s agent called me and asked me if I wanted to. ` I know this agent well, he`s very straightforward and specific, he does not waste time and does not try to provoke interest in his players just tohe`s been very straightforward, so when he told me I could have Matic if I wanted to, I told him `of course, ` revealed Mourinho. `The Portuguese assured that his returnof Stamford Bridge is not so emotional, and he sees this duel in the same way as other derbies. `I think that`s normal. I promise I will go to Stamford Bridge as well as to the Emirates, the way I do for every big game. The big game is because of the rival, not because I was a manager there. Perhaps the first time I returned to Stamford Bridge in 2009 with Inter or last season after my second stay in Chelsea was more special. But now it is normal. I think this game adviced by odds draw tips is great in itself, not because I or Mathic or Mata were in Chelsea. It`s great because Chelsea is a champion, and Manchester United is Manchester United. Chelsea is the winner of the title and one of the top teams in the country. That`s why I think they are one of the big contenders for the title. I think six teams will fight for it. Everton, despite big investments, can not follow the rest. Liverpool is currently lagging behind a few points, but I`m sure that in a few weeks they will be near us, `Mourinho added.
