Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has picked one of Nelson Mandela's quotes ahead of a trip to Manchester United on Wednesday.
The Old Trafford will light up on Wednesday as Mourinho makes a return one year after being sacked by the Red Devils.
After 11 months out of the game, the 56-year-old was appointed Spurs boss last month, replacing the sacked Mauricio Pochettino, and Mourinho insists he enjoyed his time in Manchester.
"This is a closed chapter for me," said Mourinho, who has guided Spurs to three consecutive victories. "I left the club and took my time to process everything that happened. I took my time to prepare myself for the next challenge.
"Honestly, Manchester United for me now is in my history book. Like Mr. [Nelson] Mandela was saying: 'You never lose – you win or you learn'. At United, I won and I learned. No regrets."
"Going back to Old Trafford is to go back to a place where I was happy," he added. "I have a great relationship with Manchester United supporters. I went back as a pundit [and] was humbled by such a beautiful reception.
"Tomorrow I go back as the coach of the team that is going to try to beat Manchester United. I expect this respect that they always show towards me, but I understand what they want is exactly the opposite of what I want. I want Tottenham to win, they want Manchester United to win. During the match, I expect them to forget me and I expect them to support their team to get the result they want.
"Before the game and after, one thing is to be in the corridor where I don’t know anybody. Another thing is to meet in the corridor good friends, people who work with me, people who I have a very good relationship with, people I keep in contact with on the phone, SMS, WhatsApp. That’s a different thing. Before and after the game, it’s going to be a little bit different and I’m happy with that. During the game, there’s no space for any feelings at all.
"I’m not a villain, I’m not an enemy but I am the coach trying to win against Manchester United – that’s how they’re going to look at me. They’re not going to support me, they’re going to support [current boss Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer."
