Adebayor: Man Utd boss Mourinho completely different in private

Emmanuel Adebayor has spoken of working with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

Adebayor now plays in Turkey with Istanbul Basaksehir.

He said of Mourinho: "He taught me a lot, he would joke with us in the dressing room and then later was different with the press.

"I don't know what it was and neither am I interested to know but he was a different person, it was incredible.

"He taught me to be a real professional, to have a winning mentality and work extra hours."
