IT looks as though Jose Mourinho has been in the tattoo parlour again. The Manchester United manager’s new inking is actually covered by his watch.
So it is very difficult to actually see what Mourinho has emblazoned on his lower left arm. But United fans were still fascinated to note that their boss has added another tatt. They spotted the tattoo on Sunday afternoon during the 4-0 Premier League thrashing of West Ham at Old Trafford. According to the Daily Mail, Mourinho, 54, got his first and only other tattoo done four years ago.
He paid £80 to have ‘Tami’, the nicknames of his wife Matilde Faria, and his children etched on his wrist. There was obviously some initial doubt about the new one when fans realised Mourinho had had a tattoo done previously in a similar position.
The Arsenal contract rebel has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium.
Arsene Wenger is adamant Sanchez will not be sold, despite running the risk of losing him on a free next summer. And former Liverpool and Aston Villa striker Collymore believes he is “angling” for a move away from the club. He wrote in his Sunday People column: “Some Arsenal supporters seem happy to say, ‘Alexis Sanchez is a great guy, he’s a model pro’ but I am sorry, he is not.
“He is angling to get out of Arsenal and he is not doing it in a proper way. “Like Danny Rose, he is a disgrace as well.” Sanchez, who featured for Chile at this summer’s Confederations Cup, returned late to pre-season training due to illness. An abdominal injury ruled him out of the opening-day win against Leicester. Reports in France last night suggested Sanchez was in Paris with his agent and lawyer. PSG were linked with Sanchez earlier this summer but have cooled their interest since signing Neymar for a world-record fee.
Special One believes opening-day clash proved Red Devils have learned their lessons from last season.
Old Trafford fans grew frustrated with a number of stalemates in the previous campaign – an issue the boss signed Romelu Lukaku to fix.
Mourinho, 54, said: “The game was open at 2-0 and they had a chance. “I don’t think the game was 4-0 of course you score the third and you breathe and you relax, you play with a lot of confidence – 10 more minutes and we could have scored more. “I think we didn’t start especially well. I think we were nervous, not so confident but then we had a quality performance good personality and we looked confident.
“It’s nice for Morata to score, nice for Wayne Rooney to score, nice for Lukaku to score, Lacazette and some others that I don’t know. “We lost two points against West Ham here last season. We had matches where we were dominant but couldn’t score enough goals. Today we did and got three important points. “The reality of it is in the last part of the game instead of being boring and controlling the game we scored the third goal and everything is open to enjoy, yes I’m happy.”
Antonio Conte admits Chelsea in ‘negative situation’ as he prepares to face Tottenham with depleted squad.
And Conte said: “We have to continue to work and try to improve the negative situation. “Every game there are positives and negative situations and my task — and the task of my staff — is to improve the negative situation. “This result is a great disappointment but we have one week to try to find the right solution, to find the right option. “It will be a really tough game but we must be ready. I think we have to restart from there.”
Conte, frustrated by the failure of the club to beef up his playing squad, added: “The club is trying to do things in the transfer market. “I am a coach and now the season has started, so my focus must be on the pitch and working with my players. This is my squad and I want to fight with these players. The club is doing the work.”

In an exclusive with Daily Mail, enstaranged Chelsea Striker, Diego Costa bares all in the interview. Read below:
After helping Chelsea to the Premier League title by scoring 20 goals in manager Antonio Conte’s first season at the club, Costa finds himself at Brazil still enjoying his holiday.
It all began with a text message from Conte, informing him his Chelsea career was over. Costa has not been at Chelsea since the FA Cup final in May and nobody knows what else will happen next.
He accuses Chelsea of treating him ‘like a criminal’ and refuses to rule out legal action. He says he will always keep Conte’s text message on his phone and claims the Chelsea manager ‘lacks charisma’. Costa also accuses Conte of blocking his contract negotiations in January.
Costa says he has been fined several weeks’ wages but is defying demands to return to train with the reserves. The Spain international insists he wants a transfer to Atletico Madrid resolved this month and that, meanwhile, he is ready to see out his Chelsea contract unpaid and train alone near his home in Brazil.
