Bayern Munich ace Robben: What I thought of Mourinho

Bayern Munich veteran Arjen Robben has spoken of his admiration for Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Back in 2004, Robben chose to join Chelsea from PSV Eindhoven ahead of United.

He told FourFourTwo magazine of Mourinho: "He was really demanding and intense, but at that age I think it was good for me and my football development.

"I'm a student and someone who wants to improve and work hard, so I think our personalities were a good fit.

"I played a lot of football under Mourinho and he was a good man-manager.

"He gave me a lot of confidence and I've got good memories of playing for him."
