Jose Mourinho criticised the atmosphere at Old Trafford and revealed: It’s not Pompey.

Speaking after Manchester United’s 2-0 victory over Huddersfield, the Red Devils boss described Old Trafford as a ‘quiet’ stadium.

Mourinho then contrasted United’s ground to Fratton Park.

He remembers the atmosphere at PO4 when he was in charge of Chelsea as being ‘absolutely incredible.’

‘It’s not Portsmouth,’ Mourinho told reporters when talking about the Old Trafford atmosphere.

‘I remember Portsmouth – such a small stadium, the atmosphere was absolutely incredible.

‘In here, the atmosphere is a bit quiet and there is not very (much enthusiasm). But the players like to play at home.’
