Swansea City Manager praised Jose Mourinho ahead of his fixture against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
“He is our king of football”, said Carvalhal of Mourinho. “He is the best manager ever for Porto. He opened the doors for the new generation of managers to go abroad. He opened the ideas of the world on Portuguese coaches.”
Carlos Carvalhal has turned the table upside down for Swansea rescuing them from the relegation battle. Currently, Swansea is sitting at 14th position on the table with 31 points in hand. The Portuguese Manager has managed to secure 18 points winning 5 out of his 10 Premier League games while losing only 2.

Carvalhal admits it will be a tough competition but has a positive approach ahead of the game. “Manchester United are a very powerful side,” he said. “They win 95 percent of their home games and Mourinho teams are always very strong at home. But there are two things: I have never lost against him or at Old Trafford because it is the first time I will play him or play there, so it is a good record! They will have the ball more than us, that is normal, but we must try to score when we have the ball and when they have the ball we must defend very well.”
Jose Mourinho will be looking to prove Carvalhal right by defeating him at the Old Trafford but it won’t be that easy as the Swansea Manager has already defeated Arsenal and Liverpool which are considered as the top clubs in Premier League.
