Jose Mourinho perhaps should have used the international break to refresh himself, dilute some of that stress he’s so obviously carrying around.
But, no, the Portuguese workaholic is instead going to watch Serbia’s match against Montenegro, according to claims coming from the country.
That seems to be merely speculation based on previous reports, which were somewhat twisted between United and their neighbours Manchester City.
However, the trip is interesting because it’s the third time Mourinho has watched Serbia relatively recently. Despite his previous protests that such trips have been for other reasons, few believe him.
When Mourinho arrived in Croatia in early 2017, it launched the Ivan Perisic claims and history tells us there was truth in the rumour.
Of course, 23 year old Sergej Milinković-Savić will also be linked because of the trip, and that may make more sense, especially if Mourinho sees himself staying at Manchester Untied and Paul Pogba potentially leaving.
