Ahead of Manchester United's clash against Tottenham Hotspur, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that Jose Mourinho will receive a warm welcome upon his return to Old Trafford.
Mourinho has had instant success at Spurs, maintaining a 100% start following wins against West Ham United, Olympiakos, and Bournemouth.
The Portuguese manager was shown the door at United last December following a string of poor results that culminated in a 3-1 loss to Liverpool.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Spurs clash, Solskjaer predicted how Mourinho will be welcomed at Old Trafford, "A very good reception.
"That’s just a testament to this club and these supporters, remember two and a half years, won trophies, I’m 100 percent sure our fans, staff, and club will welcome him."
Solskjaer denied that Mourinho's return will provide players with extra motivation to win the game, "I don’t think whoever manager of opposition team is will change motivation, they’re motivated to do well for Manchester United.
"They know it’s about improving every day in training and step on that pitch to be part of this long-term. When you put the shirt on you’ve gotta give it your all, the boys are a bit disappointed after Sunday, after the game. ‘But now all eyes are on Wednesday night."
