Chelsea handler Maurizio Sarri has hailed Jose Mourinho as one of the best managers in the world irregardless of the tough times the Manchester United gaffer is currently facing at Old Trafford.
Sarri's comments come ahead of the Blues welcoming the Red Devils to Stamford Bridge for a scintillating Premier League topflight fixture on Saturday, October 20, at 11:30am.
Manchester Evening News reports that Sarri believes journalists should respect Mourinho's achievements and said the ex-Real Madrid coach has won almost everything there is to win.
Sarri is quoted as saying: "We are talking about a coach who has won everything. He has won everywhere. So I think that I have to respect him but I think that also you have to respect him."
And speaking on what he thought about Mourinho in general, Sarri admitted that he believes the Portuguese is one of the best in the world.
"I think that he is a very good coach. He is a very good manager. One of the best in the world of course," Sarri revealed.
Mourinho heads to the Bridge with a lengthy list of injured players but hopes to have at his disposal Ander Herrera who is looking to make a comeback to topflight action after injury.
The Spaniard proved useful in foiling the plans Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard last season and would certainly be a welcome bench boost for Mourinho.
