Mourinho names EPL team that was hard to beat

Former Chelsea and Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted that he never enjoyed playing Newcastle United at St James’ Park.

The Magpies were something of a bogey team for Mourinho during his spells in England.

The 61-year-old had two stints with Chelsea and also coached at Manchester United and Tottenham.

He was notorious for his rivalries with fellow managers like Arsene Wenger and Alex Ferguson.

But Mourinho, speaking on FIVE, said: “I didn’t enjoy to play in Newcastle because I never win. Every time I went to Newcastle it was lose or draw, lose or draw. I think I won there once probably with Chelsea, with Man United or Tottenham. Out of 10 I would win once or twice.

“There was no rivalry with [Alan] Pardew or with [Sam] Allardyce or anyone there, I just knew that going to play St James’ was really, really hard.”
