London,ENGLAND:Jose Mourinho has disclosed that joining Manchester United is a dream come true for him.
Speaking shortly after being confirmed as the new United boss on Friday, the former Real Madrid coach said no other club in world football is capable of matching the “mystique and romance” of Manchester United.
“To become Manchester United manager is a special honour in the game,” Mourinho said.
“It is a club known and admired throughout the world. There is a mystique and a romance about it which no other club can match,” he added.
